My Meridian: Being a young professional with small children, I understand being pulled in many different directions. Many times some of the most important decisions we need to make as a family can be overshadowed by all of the other stresses that occur in our daily lives. My goal is to help others see that financial decisions do not have to be one of these everyday stresses. Through careful planning and dedication, every individual and family can reach their financial goals. Once you have a roadmap for your financial future you can really begin to enjoy all the blessings in your life.
