Your Partner In Prosperity

My financial services are based on the idea of providing a personal service with objective and transparent advice. They’re what you get when I live up to my core values of Duty, Honor, Integrity, and Loyalty. You can learn more about why these things matter to me here.

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

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

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