I’m an insurance broker with Arthur J Gallagher & Co., specializing in personal insurance. I have a deep understanding of the insurers and the products in the marketplace that meet the needs of mid affluent and affluent clientele. I currently partner with several wealth management firms. My goal is to be an asset to a financial advisor, providing personal insurance expert analysis. My review and recommendations allow the financial advisor to know if the personal insurance of their clients is in good shape in terms of product and pricing. Also, if there are gaps in coverage, especially in terms of the umbrella limit and the insured value of the home.

As an experienced reverse mortgage specialist at Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC, I am committed to helping homeowners age 60 and older get the financial security that they need to cultivate a long and fulfilling retirement in the comfort of their own homes. Given the high home values in the San Francisco Bay Area and the volatility of the market, it is important that financial planners consider the largest financial asset that their older clients have in retirement planning—home equity. Thanks to new borrower protections and academic research by respected scholars such as Dr. Wade Pfau and Dr. John Salter, reverse mortgages have gained acceptance as a valuable tool to help your clients realize their long-term financial goals. I look forward to sharing the scholarly research and common uses of reverse mortgages with you. And helping you to recognize clients that can benefit from a reverse mortgage so that they can enjoy peace of mind in retirement!
