Empowering You to Control Your Financial Future

As a financial professional of color, I’d like to work with you as a coach, a teacher, a counselor to empower you to live the life you dream. 

My personal and professional experience and education help me understand firsthand the challenges and opportunities that accomplished professionals of color face.  For many of us, we are the first generation in our family to graduate from college and achieve financial success. As a result, we feel an incredible sense of responsibility to ourselves, our families and our community.

With the proper education and guidance, we have the opportunity to make a difference not just for ourselves but for the next generation.  We have the power and potential to shift our trajectory and build legacies.

Our Planning Approach

My goal is to establish a relationship based on trust. We start with an open, authentic conversation about your goals, your dreams.

  • Are trying to pay down student loan debt?

  • Do you have your sights set on entrepreneurship?

  • Are you a business owner looking to protect and grow your business?

  • Are you looking for ways to invest in your children’s future?

  • Are you saving enough for retirement/financial freedom?

  • Do you have to take care of parents and/or other family members?

Working together we will develop a plan personalized for your life, your goals. And, as a result, we will build a life-long partnership of education, financial empowerment and advocacy.
