As a financial advisor for 22 years, I have extensive knowledge of the financial markets and the financial solutions available to retail and business clients. I work extensively to understand my client’s current financial situation and their future financial goals within the framework of liquidity, risk and return objectives before making any recommendations. I serve as a sounding board not only for investment concerns but also help my clients with working through other financial related matters: getting a mortgage, buying/leasing an automobile, choosing the best banking solutions, etc. I believe in a “Buckets of Money” approach whereby a client may have multiple different objectives for different portions of their overall investment strategy and make sure they fully understand why their investments are specifically positioned accordingly. Market volatility and corrections are inevitable, but with proper planning, my clients should never be in a position where their behavior is driven by those circumstances. I take great pride in helping to educate clients on the nuances of financial planning and investment management and believe the “Holy Grail” of investing is achieving a risk adjusted return that exceeds your expectations, while providing a level of service you would expect from a financial professional in whom you have entrusted your financial future.

I am proud to represent SDCCU Investment Services and LPL Financial. Neither institution relies on “proprietary” products, believing that finding the most appropriate solution for the client is always the right choice. Having access to both brokerage and advisory solutions provides me the flexibility to draw from either area when appropriate.

I bring 30 years of practical experience to members seeking help meeting their financial goals. I seek financial investment solutions in either a brokerage account or an advisory account. Brokerage account choices include a well-vetted mix of non-proprietary mutual funds, unit investment trusts, individual bonds, annuities and structured products. Advisory accounts are available across several platforms offering all risk levels and can address very individualized needs and preferences. 
I am very comfortable helping members and families with exploring and selecting life insurance coverage or long term care coverage. These protection elements can solidify and preserve a family’s assets through income replacement, wealth transfer and protection from wealth depletion caused by high long-term care expenses.

Investments and insurance are financial tools. By combining an understanding of a member’s needs with experience and technology, we can compare risk, costs, performance and features allowing the selection of the appropriate tools.  Essentially, we create a partnership that is enhanced by regular reviews of existing plans in light of changing personal and financial needs.

I specialize in two areas that are a priority for the typical employee - 401(k) plans and stock option plans, using strategies that offer greater rates of return compared to a depository CD.
I also specialize in unit investment trusts, or UIT’s. These solutions tend to be more cost-effective than managed portfolios or mutual funds while offering the same, if not better, upside potential for growth.
My other areas of expertise include special needs planning for children or family members who will continue to need financial support throughout their adulthood, life insurance planning for personal estate and business arrangements and long term care insurance planning.

Serving: Mira Mesa, Rancho Penasquitos & Sorrento Mesa branches

My primary specialties are in Comprehensive Financial Planning, Investment Advisory Services, Income Planning and Insurance Planning. I have first hand experience in seeing how a lack of these services can negatively impact family outcomes later in life. I use that experience as a driving force in how I work with my clients over time.  I am committed to my clients’ success.

While I have over 30 years of experience in all areas of investment services, my passion lies in retirement planning. I believe saving for retirement for a specific goal need not be overly complicated. The combination of time and a solid investment plan, that could be altered if necessary, is all that is required.

My specialty is determining what the member needs and then providing suitable solutions. I can be transactional, providing a product to help your asset grow, and as a CFP™ I can be comprehensive and engage in a more encompassing discussion covering a myriad of life events. I utilize the broad LPL Financial platform to offer an array of solutions for a variety of needs to help our members achieve their objectives.

Our members ask what differentiates me from other advisors; my response is always the same, advisors all play in the same playground, we have the same tools to offer our clients. What differentiates me is that when I respond to your needs, I am speaking to you, about you, and determining what is most suitable for you. You will leave our meeting knowing and understanding not only what I suggest, but also why I suggested it and how it will fit your needs.

Serving: Carmel Mountain, Poway,  Rancho Bernardo and Scripps Ranch branches

I am very down to earth, straightforward and enjoy helping people - on and off the job. Many people feel overwhelmed, intimidated, and afraid to make a mistake with “investments”. With over 28 years of experience, I have developed a very good way to help people feel very comfortable with their choices.  First, I let them know that my employer is SDCCU and I am a registered representative with LPL Financial. Then I explain that after I have a very good understanding of their financial situation, then I can recommend a suitable investment strategy. When the transaction is suitable, they understand it, and I leave them with plenty of liquidity, I have a happy client. That is my ultimate goal – a happy client.

Serving: Murrieta, North Temecula & Temecula branches

My background in financial services is diverse. From working with broker dealers, to working in banks and credit unions, I’m able to apply the experience I’ve gained over the years to help SDCCU members identify and clarify their financial needs and goals. I’ve gained a deep understanding of the various investment and insurance products available on the market and I’m able to explain and provide recommendations that are suitable and in the best interest of our members. I specialize in retirement planning for members who are still in their accumulation years, or who have already retired and may be in need of supplemental income. 

When meeting with me, you will find me to be friendly, attentive, detailed and organized as I help you assess your finances and provide recommendations that can help you work toward your financial goals.
