Helping You Through The Process of Transition
The loss of employment is a critical life event.  The leaders of BBJ have experienced job loss at some point in our lives too.  As a result, we know the impact it has on many areas of your daily life.  With a job loss comes challenges including financial security, maintaining self-esteem, losing self-identity, juggling your family and your search, sharing your situation with those you love and day-to-day uncertainty.  What lies ahead?  What does the road ahead look like?

My main focus is to create retirement plans that cannot be outlived and to make sure that life-changing events such as a job loss does not destroy your end plan.  I look forward to the opportunity to help any BBJ member avoid many of the financial mistakes I have witnessed over my career while navigating a period of job transition.
