My experience has been recognized by the financial community as evidenced by my election into various organizations. I am a qualifying and life member of the Million Dollar Round Table. In addition I hold membership in the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors and the Sarasota Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors, as well as volunteering at my children's school.
My education, experience and professional affiliations have fostered my practical approach to offering financial guidance and planning services to my clients. Rather than just recommending a generic grouping of unrelated products, first I'll consider your specific financial goals and investment objectives. Working together, we'll formulate a strategy to help you achieve your goals. Then, as a financial professional of Equitable Advisors, I'll recommend the appropriate products and services to help you execute your strategy. Through outstanding service, I have built a strong client base and expanded my business through referrals from satisfied clients.
A strong sense of family and community are important to me. My husband, Damon Sessa and I have been happily married since 1996 and have three sons. When I am not helping my clients reach their financial goals, I enjoy spending my time with family, boating and traveling.
