About Me

Having spent close to a decade in Washington, DC attending Georgetown University for my Bachelor’s degree in Government and working as a paralegal in corporate litigation, I moved to Nashville in 2009 to pursue my Master of Business Administration from Vanderbilt University’s Owen Graduate School of Management. Upon graduation, I began my eight-year career in Human Resources as a business partner with Bank of America’s Merrill Lynch and US Trust divisions before taking on the Director of Talent Management role managing enterprise-wide Performance Management and Succession Planning at Brentwood-based Brookdale Senior Living. In my free time, I enjoy coaching Vanderbilt students on interviewing and communication skills, cheering on my G’Town Hoyas in college basketball, and spending time with my three-year old son, Burch.

I’ll guide you through the team-based, process-driven approach to financial preparedness that has helped many of my clients. Often, my clients say the greatest benefit from our collaboration is the clarity and financial peace of mind they’ve come to enjoy as a result.
