How did you become interested in personal financial planning?
“As a partner with a Big 4 accounting firm, I was responsible for providing tax services to company executives.  In that role, I quickly learned that clients were very appreciative of recommendations related to their personal financial affairs.  I gained personal satisfaction from helping clients achieve their goals.  As such, I began to focus my attention on becoming knowledgeable in a broad area of financial matters, which has led to a very satisfying and rewarding career.”
