Jennifer’s passion for financial planning was born from a personal family situation. When her father was ill, he needed daily care but had little financial resources to fund. His loss motivated her to learn all she could to protect her family’s future.
Jennifer left a successful high-tech sales and marketing career in 2007 to pursue her dream of becoming a personal financial advisor. She chose Raymond James for the extensive resources and the firm’s unwavering commitment to a client-first culture—completely in line with her values.
Jennifer works with individuals and families with current and upcoming complex life transitions—such as retirement, inheritance, job change, and divorce. Jennifer uses her deep industry experience and financial insight to assist her clients as they work toward their goals, make intelligent decisions about their money, and feel empowered over their finances. She works side by side with the individuals and families she serves, designing actionable steps to help them clarify their objectives and then set a course to achieve them.
