My Services Include:​

401k-investing.jpg

BUDGETING
Basic monthly and yearly budgets geared to pay off credit cards or other debts, build up emergency savings and save to purchase a first home or bigger home, college and retirement. I work with clients to develop a truly realistic budget; clients can try out a budget for a few months and then come back and fine-tune it.

INVESTMENT REVIEWS
Analysis of your 401K plan or personal stock and mutual fund portfolios to evaluate whether you are adequately diversified among asset classes and have an appropriate level of risk for your stage in life. If you are a novice investor, I can explain personal finance 101 and the pros and cons of stocks, bonds, mutual funds, etc.
