✔︎ Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®) from The American College of Financial Services

My Areas of Specialization
✔︎ Collaborative relationships with CPA's. While partnering with CPA’s is a classic marketing method, so few Advisors have mastered the art.

✔︎ Retirement Income Distribution Planning - one of the fastest growing areas of the advice industry.
