Kris is passionate about helping people achieve their goals and live the life they imagine for themselves. She believes financial planning is not just about investment advice, but that real value comes from helping people understand and take control of their situation to make smart decisions about their future. It’s about the sense of security that comes with knowing that you have a clear plan and the support you need to achieve your goals. Kris will work with you to develop a strong open relationship to support you on your financial journey. Kris has diverse experience and can advise on all aspects of your financial planning needs.
