Personal

I place a high priority on the value of relationships. I believe having meaningful connections with people is at the core of helping to achieve personal and professional success. I accepted a position at Foster Group because of the contagiously positive culture and the deep commitment they had to help ensure their clients are Truly Cared For®. With our fiduciary commitment, we are able to openly and honestly serve the best interests of our clients in all that we do. Foster Group, as an organization, places a high priority on family and community engagement, which aligns perfectly with my personal priorities as well.

My wife and I have three children who have provided us with a lifetime of opportunities to be engaged with them, our extended family, and our community in many different and meaningful ways.
