I have always been passionate about solving puzzles. While working in the banking industry, I realized how many individuals and families didn’t have a conservative plan for protecting, growing, and passing on their assets in a tax-efficient manner. I realized that I could combine my passion for problem solving with my understanding of the annuity business to help clients pursue their financial goals.


Today, nearly 15 years later, I’m an independent agent and the founder of my own firm, AnnuityAlly, working within my Little Rock, Arkansas community. My dedication to helping people solve financial problems is what drives me every day of my career.


I strive to serve as a trusted advisor who shares your values and is committed to providing honest advice. Rather than pushing or selling products, my goal is to help my clients feel confident in their financial future and pursue financial independence.
