    What are your specific goals for Tri-Star Trust clients?

    I want to help provide our clients with exceptional service and financial piece of mind, so they are free to concentrate on other important matters.

    What’s the best piece of professional advice you’ve ever received?

    Prioritize, then as much as possible, focus on and complete each task (instead of jumping from one emergency item to another). Then at the end of the day you have the satisfaction of being able to say, “This is what I accomplished today.”

    What’s your favorite quote?

    Courage isn’t always like a lion’s roar. Sometimes it whispers at day’s end, “I will try again tomorrow.” – Roberta Messner

    What’s your favorite food?

    Chocolate! They say that dark chocolate is good for your heart and reduces blood pressure. How lucky that something so good is good for you.
