I am delighted to share some good news with you today! After over 15 amazing years on the Space Coast serving as your financial advisor, I am pleased to announce and bring you even more financial planning services as part of our Pinnacle Financial family.

Your future success is deeply important to me and I have planned this addition to our firm carefully to best serve you in 2015 and beyond. As part of this goal, I am proud to introduce my new partner and member to our team, Amy Irvine, CCO, CFP®, MPASSM, CASL® from Corning, New York to you.

I found the same important core values of integrity, service and a client-first attitude in Amy. I know she is an asset to us already and brings over 20 years of financial planning and industry experience to our firm. Amy will oversee all the financial planning services we can now offer you, while I continue to provide the same services I always have to you.
