What I Do and Why it is Important for Military Families

| January 19, 2022

You will have to make many transitions in your life; changing jobs, raising a family, buying a house, or going back to school. These transitions are difficult for everyone, but servicemen and women, both active and retired, have some very distinctive challenges that they need to address at each juncture. According to the 2018 Military Family Lifestyle Survey, financial issues are the top lifestyle stressor1 for military families.  As a United States Marine Corps veteran, I have personally faced the day-to-day economic challenges that go along with being a service member and veteran, and with my experience I can help make these transitions easier.

How Can I Help

37% of military families feel insecure about their financial future1.  I want to help solve this problem by providing my military peers complimentary retirement, investment, and goal analysis reports.  To provide this service, I need to understand where you are on your financial journey and your goals. Because I am well-versed with the unique financial challenges affecting life before, during, and after military service, I can customize a plan that fits your lifestyle. 

Transitions are inevitable within a military family, but it doesn’t mean that you should delay your financial dreams. The earlier you start making your plan, the better. I can help you get started today!
