“Getting to know my clients and understanding their financial dreams and fears is the most important step in my process.”

I took the long road – all the way through medical school and medical practice – to become a Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®). That experience makes me uniquely qualified to help people at all stages of life with their finances. I’m great at distilling complex data into information people can use to make important life decisions. I’m compassionate. A good listener. And a big believer in the importance of financial literacy. 

After graduating from the University of San Diego with a degree in biology, I earned my medical degree from the University of New Mexico (UNM) and completed a residency in anatomic and clinical pathology. After medical school, I conducted research, joined the faculty of UNM’s Department of Pathology, taught and mentored medical students, and worked in healthcare finance. While I enjoyed all of my roles in medicine, I realized my true passions were education, business, and administration. When the opportunity to combine both of those interests as an investment advisor arrived, I jumped at the chance. 

I earned my financial planning and insurance licenses and worked for several years at a large investment bank providing financial planning and portfolio management services to hundreds of clients around New Mexico. 

But I wanted to work independently and focus on financial literacy. So I started ClariFinancial so I could offer fee-only financial planning to people around New Mexico. It’s a different model – one that emphasizes advice and planning, not selling products or how much money you have to invest. And it works for everyone, regardless of their financial status or stage in life. To the fee-only model, I add my focus on education and mentoring and the ability to customize services to meet each client’s needs.
