Fiduciary Wealth Management

My financial services are based on the idea of providing a personal service with objective and transparent advice.

They are what you get when I live up to my core values of Duty, Honor, Integrity, and Loyalty. You can learn more, in particular, about why these things matter to me here.

I know you could go anywhere for financial advice and that you are placing a lot of trust in us when you choose Thayer Financial. Especially in an industry that’s seen so many innocent people taken advantage of, I don’t take my client’s trust lightly.

That’s why, when you decide to work with me at Thayer Financial, you are getting a trusted partner for life.

As a fiduciary, I am duty-bound to act in your best interests, but it goes deeper than an obligation at Thayer Financial.
