Michelle earned a bachelor's degree in business administration from the University of Michigan with a concentration in finance.  She entered the financial industry representing financial advisors but found that she was better suited to working directly with clients.  With parents who are entering the retirement phase of their lives, she knows how important planning and preparation can be.

Michelle has been working in the industry for 24 years and feels a need to serve her community as an investment advisor. She is dedicated to assisting clients in pursuing their financial goals and currently helps service hundreds of our families. She concentrates her efforts on developing long-term relationships through a commitment to quality service.  She is integral in creating financial plans, preparing income strategies that seek to help individuals into retirement, as well as being a Social Security resource for our team.  This knowledge base is enhanced every day with new and unique client situations.

Michelle’s Professional Designations and Registrations include:

  • FINRA Series 7, 65, and 66 securities registrations
  • Accredited Investment Fiduciary® (AIF®)
  • Life Insurance License
  • Investment Advisor Representative of Commonwealth Financial Network, Member FINRA/SIPC

Michelle has been married for 25 years to her husband, Brian. They reside in Ypsilanti and enjoy having a close-knit family.  They are extremely proud of their three children.: Blake, who is also a University of Michigan graduate; Gabrielle, who is studying at the Detroit College for Creative Design; and Hunter, who is preparing to enter middle school. She assists with Cub Scouts and Flag Football. In her free time, she likes walking her dog (the new baby in the family), seeing events with Broadway in Detroit, and watching football. Go Blue!!
