My story

I spent the first 20 years of my career working for three publicly traded companies. During that time, I became intrigued by each of their 401(k) plans, so I spent a considerable amount of time studying each plan. Meanwhile, I noticed that my colleagues were intimidated by the process of selecting and allocating percentages to the mutual funds in their 401(k) plan. During this time, I saw a real opportunity to help people prepare for retirement, so in 2007, I decided to pursue a career as a financial advisor. Four years later, I opened my own firm, Heritage Financial Advisors, in Columbia, MD.
