My philosophy 

I am firmly dedicated to financial literacy for women, especially in divorce. Our professionals believe deeply that our community needs clarity around the confusing divorce process. Not just legally, but emotionally, and financially. 

Divorce will likely be the largest financial transaction you make in your life, and now is the time to advocate for your fair share.

The financial planning process is incredibly useful before, during, and post-divorce. Having a plan from the onset will allow you to negotiate a settlement that will create a sustainable lifestyle for you and your family post divorce.

How I work with you

Many clients end their marriage with investments that need to be managed. I take an educational and collaborative approach throughout the process to help you understand financial concepts and manage your wealth efficiently.



My personal story

I am originally from the San Francisco Peninsula, and am a proud alumnus of Serra High School. As a young child, my parents were divorced and I grew up in a single parent parent family. Our core family was my mother, sister, and grandmother were/are women (even our pets!). I am now married, have two daughters, and still have female pets! So being around women is comfortable for me. My mother was (and still is) very hard working, intelligent, and strong. But women of her generation were not given the financial skills to navigate life's curveballs. I realized at a young age that I didn't have the same resources that others did, and I needed to be more mature and focused. My passion for divorce financial planning comes from our personal experience of getting from fear, anxiety, and chaos (i.e. divorce aftermath) to a thriving financial and personal life that we had envisioned, but never, never, ever, thought possible.
