Quality, perspective, honesty and integrity: my core values are at the center of everything I do. You can count on that. From day one, I’m an advocate for you and your legacy. I believe in your success because I know how hard you’ve worked to get here, and I’m confident about everything you can accomplish in the future. That’s why I’m an advisor for Baird.

My "family first" philosophy is ingrained into my business practice of providing comprehensive financial planning to clients and their families. I put this philosophy into practice every day by helping clients build and protect their wealth. A large part of my planning is to help clients pass along financial legacies to their children and heirs. I would be remiss if I didn't mention philanthropy and the part legacy planning plays in estate planning.

Over my 53 years in the Wealth Management Business, I'm now guiding the fourth generation of many of my clients' families. In addition, I am a Chartered Wealth Advisor from the Wealth Planning Essentials Program, Wharton Business School 2015, reflecting my commitment to lifelong learning and growth in the Wealth Management profession.

Although I am in the financial industry, my community is my passion. As a founding member of the UK Center for Research on Violence Against Women and the UK Women & Philanthropy Leadership Council, I strive to make a difference in lives everyday. I am also actively involved with the Salvation Army, Hopkinsville (current board member), Gatton Academy (current board member), and the Kentucky Governor's Scholars Program - along with many others.

Achievements - Some people say only in America - I say, only at Baird. It was difficult to be a woman in the financial service industry when I started. I guess that makes me a Trailblazer!! I was featured in the Registered Representative Magazine, a trade publication for the securities industry, and I am the only female to be the #1 Financial Advisor at Baird (twice). I am also recognized in the Baird history book, which chronicles the company's growth and leadership.
