My passion is working with my clients. Helping them understand what is most important to them, and then helping them achieve their goals both in the short and long term. I love getting to know my clients on the deepest level, which is vital to understanding what is truly important to them. From there, I constantly strive to better my clients, and their family's position in any way possible. Investigating improper advice and working with clients impacted by the GFC early in my career, highlighted to me the importance of sound, reliable advice, and long term commitment when things get tough. My business, Sound Strategies, focuses on long term, goals based investing and planning, ensuring you, the client, remain the centre of focus at all times.
