Our Team



I have lived through financial struggles like so many PAs. Lots of debt and a seemingly great income but nothing to show for it. When I first became a PA, I met with a Certified Financial Advisor. It was astonishing to learn after years of hard work and preparation to become a PA, father and husband that my net work and debt-to-income ratio were negative (IN THE RED). Not just a little, but hundreds of thousands in debt! My transformation started then and now, it is my passion to create innovative solutions and strategic plans to improve PA well-being, financial success and business prosperity.

Currently, I work in Dermatology. I have had various leadership and management positions, as well as consulting positions. I am a business owner and very driven to help other PAs like others have helped me!
