I enjoy the personal, face to face interaction that I have with clients and assisting Jim as he works towards helping them meet their investment and retirement needs. From account opening to transfer of funds, I strive to keep our clients informed every step of the way. My time is dedicated to supporting Jim and ensuring that our clients have a positive experience from account opening and beyond".
