Experience

I have been a Financial Planner with AXA Advisors in Dallas,Texas, since 1994.  I started my financial and insurance career in 1982 when I became a CPA for Ernst & Whinney (now Ernst & Young).  That job led me into Financial Services and I joined Shearson Lehman as a stockbroker in 1988.  As a Financial Planner with AXA, I offer a variety of services to his clients including comprehensive financial advice, estate planning and insurance expertise.  I also specialize in life, health, and disability income, as well as long-term care insurance.  In the small business market, I am a specialist in retirement plans.

Education & Accreditation

I attended Oklahoma State University and graduated with BS in Accounting in 1982.  I also completed the Retirement Plan Specialist program at Wharton.  I am a Qualified Plan Specialist, enabling me to assist small businesses to set up and manage retirement plans.  I successfully passed the rigorous exams to become a Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and a Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC).  I have my life and health insurance licenses as well as the following NASD registrations:  Series 6, Series 7 and Series 65.
