"I view my role as a financial advisor more as a vocation than an occupation. I love what I do and get great gratification out of helping people with all of their financial needs. Many of my clients have become personal friends over the years which makes my job even more enjoyable because of the time I get to spend with them."

– Steve Mills, Partner
