    • President
    My focus is helping clients achieve their financial goals and provide comprehensive investment planning.

    Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska, I have proudly called Charlotte County home for over 30 years. My career began with A.G. Edwards in 1986 in Port Charlotte. After spending 13 years at Smith Barney from 1994 to 2007, I moved to Wells Fargo Advisors Financial Network in Punta Gorda and established my independent practice, Levell Wealth Management.

    In addition to the Accredited Asset Management Specialist® (AAMS) designation, I have earned the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor® (CRPC) certification by meeting rigorous professional standards and passing a comprehensive examination from the College of Financial Planning. I also hold all the requisite securities registrations and insurance licenses (Life, Health, Variable Life & Variable Annuity) to better assist clients with comprehensive planning.

    As a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor®, I am dedicated to helping my clients meeting their financial needs. Whether you are planning your retirement, saving for your children’s or grandchildren’s education, or looking to preserve your wealth, I can help. My goal is to provide sound financial advice and value-added  service to investors – always striving to build long-term relationships based on mutual trust and respect.

    Active in the local community, I participate in many civic and community organizations, including the Punta Gorda Kiwanis and Charlotte Estate Planning Council. In my free time, my wife Mai and  I enjoy traveling, gardening and photography.

      My mission is to ensure clients are happy and issues are solved quickly and efficiently. I want everyone to have a great experience at Levell Wealth Management.

      I am a native of Boston, Massachusetts but have proudly called Punta Gorda home since 1989 with my husband Allen and my two children, Emily and Jeffrey. When I am not working, my passion is cooking and supporting my hometown team, the New England Patriots.
