About me


I’m a Wealth Advisor with Truist Wealth, supporting high-net-worth clients through retirement, business transition planning, risk and investment management, and other financial services for over three decades.

I focus on understanding and getting to know my clients and their families’ goals with a comprehensive approach that starts with planning.  I believe that if you don’t understand where you’re going, it’s hard for you to get there—and if you start with a plan and refer back to it, it’s hard to get lost. I’ve spent my career helping clients and their families develop a stick to their plans. Along with a team of Truist professionals I will, like a financial architect, develop and execute strategy and serve you with unparalleled dedication.

I began my career at First Security Bank and helped start the Unified Banking Company before joining Truist’s predecessor firm, BB&T, in 2010.

Personal Interests

A lifelong resident of Lexington, KY, I earned a B.B.A. from the University of Kentucky. I currently serve on the board of Lexington Medical Society Foundation and have served as a volunteer with the Alzheimer’s Association, Care Navigators, United Way, Lexington Medical Society Golf Committee, Lex Arts Campaign (physician co-chair), CASA, Lexington Humane Society, Habitat for Humanity, and (treasurer). I’m also a member of Leadership Lexington (Class 1996-97).

I have two children, Will and Maggie, and enjoy lake time, kayaking, skiing, gardening, hiking, yoga, and anything outdoors. I love a challenging home project and working with tools, but what’s most important to me is spending time with my family and walks with my Dachshund, Max.
