Partner, Director of Financial Planning, Senior Financial Advisor

In 2015 I joined Marshall Financial Group (MFG) because the firm’s commitment to excellence in investment management and comprehensive financial services align with my expertise, values, and ethical standards. While each individual and family we serve are incredibly unique, the depth of our relationships allows us to fully integrate our clients’ personal, financial, and life goals into one holistic, customized plan. I am committed to making meaningful contributions to our clients’ financial well-being.

I chose this field because I enjoy applying critical thinking skills to solve challenges. When I began my career almost four decades ago, the financial field was dominated by men. One of my proudest accomplishments is to have been accepted as a qualified, trusted advisor while building lifelong relationships with my incredible colleagues and clients. I’ve also pursued my interest in education by serving as a professor at the Community College of Baltimore County, and as a member of the faculty team for the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Program.
