Commitment to Serving the Public


Andy is a member of the Garrett Planning Network, Inc. (GPN),  a nationwide network of fee-only financial advisors. GPN members are dedicated to providing competent, unbiased financial advice to people from all walks of life, on an hourly as-needed basis. Less than 1% of the nation's financial planning firms are structured this way.

Many financial advisors accept clients only if they meet income and net worth requirements. GPN members believe, however, that professional, unbiased financial advice is something all Americans should have available. Holding to this philosophy, GPN members offer the same quality, professional advice to all clients, not just the affluent.
