I am proud to add a global perspective to Willow Creek’s client experience. I have worked as a financial planner and client advisor to individuals and families in Marin County and San Francisco for the past 11 years. Before that, I lived in Hong Kong for 10 years, where I was a senior investment manager and research analyst for one of Southeast Asia’s leading family groups.
I have also been a member of Arthur Anderson’s Economic & Financial Consulting Services Group, and have taught graduate level financial planning courses at Golden Gate University.

I am a uniformed leader for the Boy Scouts of America, am on the board for the Mill Valley Little League, and have helped coach my daughter’s softball team. I am also an avid skier and mountain biker, and I love to run the Marin trails.
