Ken graduated with an engineering degree from Milwaukee School of Engineering. After nine years, he found that something was missing. As luck would have it, Ken’s parents were retiring about this time and asked Ken to assist them with their retirement planning. During this process, Ken realized his true passion for helping others with their retirement and estate planning.
“My personal mission is to give our clients peace of mind about their finances enabling them to live their retirement years to the fullest. This is a responsibility I take very seriously, and I treat every client as if they were my own mother or father. I am dedicated to building warm, friendly relationships with our clients and taking a sincere interest in their values, plans and dreams for the future.”
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
