Susan is a graduate of Lawrence Technological University. Her career has included over 20+ years in various managerial Sales and Marketing positions within a Fortune 500 Company. She is licensed and certified as a Life Insurance Counselor, which means she is an expert on the provisions/riders found in life, health and retirement annuity contracts, and knows how to maximize these financial products to the specific needs of her clients. She is also Certified in the 6 Sigma Quality Methodology. She uses a comprehensive retirement planning/analysis software for the detailed Financial Analysis, which creates multiple scenarios based on a client's personal goals/desired timelines.
Susan works with several U.S. based Financial and Insurance Marketing Organizations to ensure she always has access to the best training and products for her clients. Susan has key relationships with several local experts to serve her and their clients better, i.e., CPA's, Elder Law Attorneys, and Mortgage and Real Estate Professionals. For example, to assure retirement and tax planning is always part of the conversation, she often is requested to attend annual tax preparation meetings.
Only the ones with the strongest financial ratings, meaning A or A+ in 90% of cases, with names you recognize and can trust! Being an independent producer assures a large selection of insurance carriers to pick from, and that the product was chosen based on your specific needs.
We respect our clients busy schedules, and strive to always meet during the hours that work best for you; we also use technology to minimize the need for multiple meetings, and to streamline processing times. By submitting your information you will be contacted by a financial professional and may be solicited to purchase life and or health insurance, or an annuity at a future date.
It is surprising how many people don't really know how much their monthly fixed expenses are. How can we properly plan for retirement without knowing this number? Another eye opener is realizing and planning for the fact that the Government is a key partner who will get a percentage of the current dollar amount in your 401-K, SEP or Traditional IRA's. If taxes go up, so does their percentage - be prepared!

You have seen the commercials; you have heard many negative things about annuities. Read what an esteemed PBS speaker thinks, who gives you the "real story" behind Ken Fisher's marketing campaign.
Do you charge a fee? Yes, a flat fee based on work performed. I also earn a commission if we put products in place; however, the flat fee mayor may be waived if recommended products are purchased.
Do you act in the role of fiduciary with your clients? Yes, as a certified insurance counselor it is my primary responsibility and intention to always act in the best interests of the client first.
How do I know what my current Financial Advisor's fees are, and if they are reasonable? Great question - Let's chat!
What's the difference between a Medicare Advantage Plan and a Medicare Supplement? Primary difference is a Supplement plan gives you many more choices - you can choose which doctor, which hospital, and where you want your care to be given at. I believe Advantage Plans quickly become "disadvantage plans" when you get really sick, and consequently, do not sell or recommend them."
