John has a passion for helping clients achieve their goals. He is committed to the financial planning process in discovering client’s goals and objectives and presenting solutions that may help in achieving those goals and objectives. Implementation of these solutions and ongoing monitoring and meeting with clients is necessary as we adapt to life’s changes. Both a commitment to excellence and having a teacher’s heart are keys to maintaining his client relationships as he helps clients to fully understand the financial decisions they are making.  John often incorporates a fee based model rather than a commission based model when guiding clients through the investment process.
