Paul Carpenter, CPA/PFS CFP® CSA

My father started what became our family business in 1953 with a dream to provide proactive and effective tax and financial advice to friends and neighbors. After college, I joined him in 1978, and together we subsequently grew the business to include my two brothers. Over time, and in response to our client's needs, we became a modem financial services firm growing by reputation, and providing effective solutions to real-life money challenges. 

Your family is important to me. I've spent my entire career carefully guiding friends and neighbors along the path of making wise and effective financial choices. I invite you to let me be your guide as you navigate your financial future with new found vision.
