Having transitioned from a successful 34-year career as a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA) to a Medicare Broker and Advisor was a natural progression for me, driven by a desire to extend my expertise and help individuals firsthand.  Throughout my years in financial management, I have witnessed the importance of comprehensive planning in safeguarding against unforeseen risks.

As a CPA, I honed my analytical and strategic thinking skills, which I now apply to Medicare advising.  I approach each client's situation with meticulous attention to detail, conducting thorough assessments of their healthcare needs and preferences.  By analyzing the intricacies of Medicare plans and comparing options based on individual circumstances, I deliver tailored recommendations that align with each client's unique requirements.  My goal is to empower individuals to make informed decisions about their Medicare coverage, ensuring they receive the most suitable plan that offers comprehensive benefits and financial security.

Integrity and transparency have always been guiding principles in my professional career.  As a Medicare Broker and Advisor, I uphold these values by fostering open communication, honesty, and trust with my clients.  I believe in providing clear and accurate information, guiding individuals through the complexities of Medicare with clarity and simplicity.  By maintaining a transparent and ethical approach in all aspects of my work, I aim to build lasting relationships built on mutual respect and understanding.

My transition to a Medicare Broker and Advisor is driven by a deep-seated commitment to helping others.  I find immense fulfillment in assisting individuals in securing affordable and comprehensive Medicare coverage that meets their specific needs.  By leveraging my expertise and experience, I aim to alleviate the stress and uncertainty often associated with healthcare decisions, guiding clients towards a path of financial stability and peace of mind.
