Areas of Expertise

As a representative of the Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management Company, I am able to provide you with customized recommendations that will help you plan for your financial future.

  • Business Continuation Planning
    What will happen to your business when you retire, or if you become permanently disabled or die? What's the value of your business, and how much is each owner's share worth? Because I specialize in business continuation planning, I can help you answer these and other questions. Together we can develop a range of solutions to help protect your business, should something unforeseen happen down the road.
  • Retirement Planning
    Perhaps one of the greatest financial challenges you will face in your lifetime is preparing adequately for your retirement. I will help you create a plan that will assess your current financial situation, determine the retirement lifestyle for your future, review the many options available, and put solutions in place to help ensure you achieve the retirement of your dreams.
  • Employee and Executive Benefits Planning
    Employee benefits are an important part of the growth of your business. Benefits such as health insurance, pension plans, group life and disability income plans make up the compensation package that helps ensure continued employee satisfaction and well-being within your company. Designing an employee benefit approach can be a complicated, technical and time-consuming matter. Working with a specialist who offers access to comprehensive employee benefit services through local and independently owned companies, provides a number of advantages, including experienced professionals with access to top providers and a wealth of benefit choices tailored to meet your business' ever changing needs.
  • Retirement Income Planning
    Becoming a retiree doesn't mean retirement planning ends. Spending your retirement assets can actually be more complex than building them. The investment and savings strategies you used to accumulate wealth may need to be adjusted as you prepare for and enter retirement. Together we can develop a plan to help you achieve financial security in retirement - through our unique strategy designed to preserve and continue to manage your wealth, protect against the risks that can affect your retirement years, and provide you with predictable and steady income for life.
  • Estate Planning
    You work your whole life to build your estate. You should have control over what happens to it upon your death. Building a lasting legacy takes more than simply accumulating a large portfolio. You need a solution that remains flexible enough to allow you to maintain maximum control of your assets and enjoy them during your lifetime while you prepare for the efficient transfer of those assets after you die.
  • Life Insurance Planning
    Many people realize that they need life insurance. And, many people have opinions about what type of life insurance they prefer. I regularly help people determine how much life insurance they need and what types or combination of types of coverage are best suited to help them further their own objectives. A well constructed life insurance policy can be a valuable part of your overall financial security plan. I will help you look at this in the context of your overall financial security plan and help you determine what makes the most sense for your particular situation.
  • Special Needs Planning
    Planning for a dependent with special needs can be complicated. It is recommended that you work with a team of experts - including an attorney, a financial professional and a social service professional. As a key member to the special needs team, I provide solutions for families with special needs.
