Favorite quote
“Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one's personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself.” Viktor Frankl

Favorite meal
Vegetarian with unique herbs and spices.

Something I’m honored to do
I volunteer my time, efforts, talent and treasure to make the world a better place as a member of Rotary. It’s an honor to make a difference in the lives of others by working in common cause with my fellow Rotarians.

Something about WCF that makes me proud
While many fee-only financial planning firms claim they place clients' interests first, WCF genuinely does do that. Our culture is about always seeking our clients' best interests.
