I found myself in a situation that totally turned my life upside down. I was stranded in a foreign country with my 14-month-old baby. I quickly learned how to handle myself, my money and my financial future. I know how circumstances like divorce, death of a spouse, retirement, career changes and major life shifts can shake your world, so I've devoted over 25 years as a financial advisor to help you preserve what you already have, be your guide in pursuing your objectives and help you secure financial independence. I have become known for my creative audience presentations which combine investment concepts with a variety of everyday situations to help take the mystery out of financial management. My most popular events include: o Beauty & Her Financial Beasts o Investment Recipes cooking demonstration o Prince Charming Is Not A Financial Plan o What Do Chocolate; Emotions & Money Have in Common? o How To Tame The Money Monster money management for kids (in addition to writing a childrens book about how to manage money). I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professional and have been featured on local and national radio, on television and in print media. I am honored to be the recipient of multiple industry awards including: - Recognized in Chicago Magazine as one of the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 recipients of the Five Star Wealth Managers Award*. * See honors and awards section for details regarding criteria.
