About me


I’m a Senior Wealth Advisor with Truist Wealth, advising a select number of high-net-worth families on investment policy and asset allocation, tax, financial planning, estate strategies, private banking, asset protection, and business succession planning.

Prior to my current role, starting in 2005, I was a family wealth advisor and then a senior wealth strategist and senior vice president with Truist’s predecessor firm, SunTrust, in its GenSpring segment. I was responsible for assisting ultra-high-net-worth families with a wide variety of wealth management needs, including estate and gift tax planning, income tax planning, financial planning, philanthropy, risk management, and family governance.

I rejoined GenSpring in 2015 as a managing director and senior family wealth advisor, offering extensive experience working with ultra-high-net-worth families and family offices. As a former estate planning and corporate attorney with Smith, Gambrell & Russell, I worked closely with entrepreneurs and closely held business owners on a variety of corporate and tax matters, including pre-liquidity or pre-transaction estate and gift tax planning.

I also served as a director and wealth strategist with Merrill Lynch and as a vice president and senior wealth strategist with Goldman Sachs and the Ayco Company, where I provided objective and sophisticated guidance to ultra-high-net-worth clients and family offices on their tax and financial planning needs.
