My Role at BCS Wealth Management

My role at the firm is to offer investment management and comprehensive financial advice. I enjoy creating investment strategies and plans specifically tailored to help clients manage their assets and meet their financial goals. My favorite areas of concentration are retirement planning, tax planning, and estate planning. Over the years, I’ve had the pleasure to work with clients in different stages of life with different goals and needs. It’s a privilege to work alongside my clients and a job that I take very seriously.

Education and Experience

I passed the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ exam in 2005 and became a practitioner in 2007. In 2008, I received a Master of Business Administration degree from Milligan College.

Community Involvement and Personal Notes

I’ve participated in various community activities, including captaining USTA tennis league teams, completing two half marathons, serving on the finance committee at my church and singing in the choir. I’m a member of the Johnson City Chamber’s Leadership 2020 Program. In 2017, I earned the Business Journal’s 40 Under Forty Award and the Professional Excellence Award from Milligan College for outstanding accomplishments in the field of finance and bringing distinction to Milligan through professional achievements.
