Services are at NO cost to my clients for insurance risk advising. Portfolio management and Strategic Planning are fee based services through Hilbert Financial Group.

How did you get started in this business?

After a 30 year career in business management, architectural design, and manufacturing I decided I wanted to help others manage and protect their families while pursuing their goals.

What types of customers have you worked with?

I continually attract clients who are starting out as individuals, growing into families, and becoming very successful in their endeavor.  Along the way I have met and continue to work with clients at all stages of life. My best day was recently realized when a struggling family came to me during their most vulnerable time. I helped them understand their current coverage and we explored their options moving forward. Consequently, they chose the best option that will help their success from today forward. My high net worth clients enjoy the knowledge and wisdom I’ve earned which empowers their financial management year after year.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A client came to me a few years back asking about their healthcare plan. In the corse of discovering existing coverage and weighing all available options that fit their budget best, they chose options and we put in place a strategy to protect their consistent flow of income. Recently a tragedy struck, their coverage was tested, and while they are in recovery income is not an issue. Life for them has been drastically changed, however it did not impact their ability to continue forward supporting a balanced budget.

What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

In legacy planning and risk advising, I have the unique perspective of four generations. The eldest member of my family was born in 1929 and my youngest was born in 2017. Each has a specific personality and planning needs with concerns. I am involved in their lives and connected to their needs and concerns. We rejoice and cry together. You need a professional that is there for you just like I am for my family and my clients. Our team is heart based. We beat together as a supportive group. Each associate and their client adds a unique beat creating a symphony of hearts full of wisdom.

What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

Ask yourself, “What do I know, factually know, about my current financial health?” What are my future plans and goals? Do I know how much I’m making, spending, and saving each month, year, and decade? Am I in charge and have I planned for any contingencies? How much income do I allocate towards protection from risk? Is my current situation going to change, and when? Are my current policies adequate and flexible to grow with my success? Have I considered limiting my Tax liability? What are my options over my current policies, planning, and retirement needs?
