Founder, President

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 puts bread on the table. Throughout my career I’ve served small business owners, and I’ve never forgotten the early lesson.

Why Else Should You Hire Me? 

I founded CVA to help clients find clarity, understanding, and peace of mind on the road to financial security. 

My fees are earned helping you discover effective ways to let your money serve your interests; with smart planning to make it last longer.

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 also 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, I enjoy watching my kids play baseball, basketball, and the guitar! I am also a huge UCSB fan (Go Gauchos!). My family and I volunteer heavily at HearAid Foundation, a foundation to help those that cannot afford hearing devices.
