She employs an uncanny knack for ferreting out the most creative strategies for maximizing the benefits to her clients. “I like to think strategically, and devise a course of action that has inherent value. My clients trust me with privileged information and in respect of that trust, I want to really identify and understand their estate-planning goals and concerns.”
Ina is committed to providing unbiased financial education. She speaks regularly at professional organizations, corporations, and associations. Her philosophy, both in her business and personal life is to be the best source of up-to-date, pragmatic and transferable information on the topics she needs to help others.
When working with Ina, one see immediately her enthusiasm for what she does and today, that enthusiasm carries over to her two sons and her grandchildren, who have clearly captured her heart.
