The advice you need when you need it

We appreciate that you have worked hard to attain your wealth — and we know that you desire to do good, invest well, and pass on not only your wealth, but also your values to the generations to follow. We also know that managing your wealth can be complex and time-consuming. As your Assante advisor, together we will help you define and prioritize each of your goals and we build a comprehensive wealth plan that will help you achieve them. We will walk beside you throughout your life to help you navigate all of the challenges and complexities you may face along the way. 

Fit Matters

We believe that finding the right personal fit is mandatory for a productive relationship. We fit best with clients who prioritize the simple things in life, who value implementation and follow-up, and proactively communicate with me. You need an advisor to whom you can relate, an Advisor you trust and who understands your specific needs.

The majority of our clients and experience comes from working with people in one of five career groups:


ENTREPRENEURS                             FARMERS

The result is that over time we have gained valuable experience and understanding of the unique financial planning needs and opportunties of these groups.

In our experience, the best approach to address the unique financial needs of these groups is a team approach.

If you are looking for an advisor who gets you and can convert ideas into concrete financial decisions, I would be a good fit for you.
