I believe that everyone deserves to live the life they want. My purpose is to help others grow and be the best version of themselves. I do this by setting a good example, educating and managing their wellness with a focus on three key areas: health, wealth and fulfillment.


I was born and raised in Berlin, CT and went on to attend Bryant University where I was the mascot on a few occasions. In 2009, amid a significant market correction, I started my career as a financial advisor and moved to Boston and stayed for 10 plus years. In 2020, one month before the pandemic, my family and I moved back to Connecticut and currently reside in Glastonbury. Other than having excellent timing, I enjoy spending time with my family, playing guitar, soccer, basketball and cooking.

I strive to continue to grow and achieve on both a personal and professional level. Some of my proudest achievements is being a four-time Five Star Wealth Professional, obtaining my CFP® designation and fundraising for local non-profits. I look forward to helping you achieve health, wealth and fulfillment.
