13 Years of Experience Qualifications CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner Series 7, Series 66 and Life and Health Insurance Education BA in Business, California State University Sacramento, 2002-2006 Concentration in Finance and Risk Managent My Approach Ameriprise financial advisors work with busy, hard-working professionals like you who value sound financial planning. We work closely with you to manage multiple goals and handle complex financial situations and recommend ways to protect what is most important to you. The Seasons of Advice®approach is designed to help make managing your financial life easier and more rewarding, while fully re-evaluating your plan each year. Seasons of Advice®focuses on the following four seasons: Goal Tracking Season – We examine your progress, re-evaluate assumptions and possibly re-set goals and priorities for the year. Asset Allocation Season – Incorporating the criteria established in the goal tracking we examine risk tolerance, investment time frame and create an investment strategy for the next twelve months. Mid-Year Reviews - Family, Security and Cash Flow Season – Cash flow is revisited and there is a complete review of estate planning strategies, beneficiary designations and employee benefits, including the annual insurance reviews. Tax Planning Season – We evaluate your investments and provide tax-wise recommendations, plus we can coordinate with your accountant to help you make informed decisions about your investments during the next tax season.
