Our Team

The Royal Oak Team

We Achieve our Clients' Objectives...
Through Good Times and Bad!

Dream. Plan. Achieve 
A dream without a plan will always be just that: a dream. Our focus is to build a plan to achieve your dreams by sharing our knowledge and expertise on investments, tax, estate, education and retirement planning. We bring a variety of products, service, and advice to the table while keeping the emphasis on your long-term goals. One of the things we are most proud of is providing you with the confidence that comes from knowing that your plan is taking shape and the peace of mind that comes from knowing your dreams will be achieved. It starts with your dream, we build the plan and together, celebrate the achievement.

 Our client-centered focus combined with the application of our unique balanced financial planning and investment program has helped us to preserve capital while at the same time provide required income and reduce personal income tax. That's tough to beat, almost as tough as our competitive fee structure.  Contact us for a complimentary information package.

Certified Financial Planner®

As a Certified Financial Planner, I strive to make a positive difference in the lives of others by helping them plan for financial success and future prosperity. I started in the financial services industry in 1996, working with a local advisor as his administrator and eventually, his Branch Manager. Through this experience I learned that I enjoy planning and working with people and it became clear to me that I had found my passion. Shortly thereafter, I became insurance and mutual fund licensed and continue to take courses to expand my knowledge of our ever-changing industry.
