Meet the Team

In our financial practice, we have the client—and only the client—in mind.

Jessica's reasons for becoming a financial professional are deeply personal. She repeatedly saw many friends and family struggling to find the help they needed to map out their financial future. We are confident that with Jessica's understanding of personal finance, coupled with her training as a financial professional, she can help people better prepare for the future. We take pride in educating individuals in an easy-to-understand manner so they can grasp personal finance and use those concepts to pursue their financial objectives. We feel a commitment to our community.

At our firm, we have the client—and only the client—in mind.

No one strategy fits everyone, which is why every client gets our undivided attention—from planning to execution to follow-up. We take a proactive approach to helping you develop a strategy to address your financial goals and objectives, using the most efficient methods available.
