I have been a member of CONNECT Madison since the very beginning. I joined the events committee, became the events chair, and am now the Vice President of our group. I love the wide array of events, socials, volunteering activities, and locations that CONNECT Madison provides. I learn something new every event!

Back in March of 2013 I started Forward Financial Planning, an independent financial planning services firm in the Madison Area. I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERâ„¢ who helps individuals and families work toward their financial goals. I do this through educating my clients and developing customized strategies that are financially feasible. Retirement planning, college funding, and tax savings are just a few of the areas that I helps my clients with.

Originally from Monroe, Wisconsin, I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Bachelor's degree in Consumer Science with an emphasis in Personal Financial in 2007. I'm currently Membership chair for the Greater Madison Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors and a 2013 graduate of Civitas.
