MY MISSION

Chad (on the left) on his climb up Mount Rainier

In 2007, three friends approached me with an idea:  We should climb Mount Rainier, the third highest peak in the U.S., and one of the largest glacier systems in North America. I had never done any serious mountaineering in my life, but four months later, there I was with crampons on my feet and a 40 pound pack on my back, well into a grueling 17 hour climb in the dead of night. There were moments when I thought, “What am I doing?” -- when the terrain got steep, the air got thin and dehydration set in.  But three days and 14,409 feet later, we made it to the summit of Mount Rainier. This was one of the proudest moments of my life.

I know thinking about long-term financial security can feel like climbing a mountain, but it’s not as challenging as you think. With focus and an experienced team, you can accomplish tremendous things. And you can gain the confidence and peace that comes from knowing you have taken the steps to help ensure the long-term financial security of your family. And it all starts with one step...
 

For more than 20 years, since I graduated from Wake Forest, I have been a financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual. I have made this work my career because I value the relationships we build and the kind of lasting impact we can have on people’s lives. Imagine how you would feel with a team beside you and an integrated plan in place to help ensure your family's financial security.
