A Look Into Our Practice

@Aspen offices are headquartered in Michigan with offices in Grand Rapids, Troy, Farmington Hills, Rochester and Port Hurton, and enthusiastically serve clients across the country. It is important to understand your financial options based on your personal needs. As a financial professional with Equitable Advisors and a partner of At Aspen, LLC, I am dedicated to helping individuals and businesses build their financial futures. We understand that financial guidance is about more than just money. It’s about appreciating who you are and what you want in life. Only then do we work with you to design a comprehensive, personalized financial strategy that fits your goals today and your vision for tomorrow. It’s about helping you build a fulfilling future, your way.

Each dollar is a testament to the trust that our clients have in us, which we do not take lightly. Our goal is to continually keep that trust by knowing our clients, their needs, goals, and risk tolerance.

Our Services

Whether you run a business, have a family, or just need wealth management guidance for yourself, we can provide financial strategies that can adapt to your changing needs and the evolving life you live.

Financial Planning

After listening carefully to you, we utilize state of the art tools and strategies to develop an individualized plan. Your plan provides a foundation to help you create, protect, and transfer your individual, your family, or your businesses’ wealth.

Retirement Planning

Together we will develop a well-thought-out financial plan and base investment decisions around that plan. There will be times when you are nervous about the latest financial crisis and will start to question if you are on the right path. This is when the value of working with @Aspen will be reinforced.

Asset Management

We use an unbiased approach to the investment universe by completing an analysis of your current portfolio to provide you with comprehensive portfolio recommendations that are aligned with your expectation of risk and return. We utilize a variety of investment platforms.


We identify and quantify your various financial risks to develop insurance based solutions for your specific goals. We explore intergenerational wealth transfer, estate conservation, and charitable gifting opportunities.

Employee Benefits

Our goal is to assist you in navigating the complex arena of employer benefits. These include health care, disability, and retirement plans.
