Why Should You Hire Me? 

My working life began in a family-owned business at age 13. I learned early it’s the people you serve, and how you serve them, that makes the difference. Throughout my career I’ve served individuals and small business owners, and I’ve never forgotten the early lesson.

I founded CVA to provide clients’ customized, competent advice and superior service you can’t find with large institutions.

My fees are earned helping you find even more effective ways for your money to serve your lifestyle; with sound strategies to make it last longer.

My Background, Skills, and Knowledge

My expertise spans over 25 years of financial and investment advice, portfolio management, and business valuation. I’ve advised business owners, executives, and individuals on retirement and income planning, succession planning, asset concentration risk, business valuation, and how to increase portfolio efficiency to serve particular objective(s).

Client Services

I have more than 10 years in Client Services in the financial service industry. I performed a variety of duties as a Senior Sales Assistant at Montgomery Securities in the International Institutional Equity Sales group. At JP Morgan, I was a Sales Assistant in its Institutional Equity Sales unit. My duties there included project management and client services. I am responsible for gathering data, performing operational duties, and servicing clients through diligent and detailed follow-up.

Away from the office, my husband and I enjoy watching our son Rod, play baseball at the University of California Santa Barbara and our younger son Colin, play volleyball and fly airplanes. We also have 2 dogs that we love hanging out with.
