Network of Specialists
Through Northwestern Mutual, I have access to a Network of Specialists. We help each other, share ideas and common values, and leverage each other's talents to help you achieve your personal dream of financial security.
A career aptitude test once told me I was best suited for an occupation as a funeral director, teacher, or stand-up comedian. I think my career with Northwestern Mutual has taken bits and pieces of all three.
In 1979 I was laid off as a fork lift operator. At the time, I had one more semester of college separating me from receiving a diploma. Subsequently, I signed up for a sales internship with Northwestern Mutual and never left.
Shortly after that, I received a Bachelor's Degree in Marketing from Western New England University. As I began to build my career with NML, I continued my education to achieve CLU, ChFC, CFP, CASL, and LUTCF. I take pride in being a Financial Advisor, helping individuals and families plan for their future, and accomplish their goals. My success in the field as been recognized by several organizations, including the Million Dollar Round Table (MDRT). I also received the National Quality Award in 1980, and 1933-2010, as well as the National Sales Achievement Award from 1980-1990, and 1992-2010.
In the past, I have held positions as the President for the Springfield Chapter of NAIFA, State President of the Massachusetts Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, President of Society of Financial Service Professional, President of Wilbraham-Hampden Rotary, and Director and Committee Chair for MDRT.
I understand my clients are in different stages of life: you might be purchasing your first home, financing a child's education, or planning for retirement. I believe a financial security plan must reflect your personal or business situation, and so will work to highlight the financial security products that best fit your goals. I am truly dedicated to learning about my client's personal goals. Together, we will use them to build a financial security plan focused on your specific needs.
