Jay was born and raised in Merrillville, Indiana. He graduated from Purdue University and Indiana University Medical School. He was a practicing physician caring for sick newborn and premature infants in Phoenix, Arizona until 1995. Jay is passionate about mentoring and serving the needs of those who have sought out his professional expertise and experience now spanning two careers.

He left the practice of medicine in 1995 after earning his Master of Business Administration from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania in 1995.

Jay has been a Financial Advisor since 1998 and a Portfolio Manager since 2010. He believes that his career transition from Physician to Financial Advisor in 1995 was possible because he developed a formal Life/Career Plan and a parallel Financial Plan in the late 1980s. Though seemingly polar opposite careers, both require years of experience, careful research and attention to detail, and serving peoples' needs.

This personal experience now is the basis for Jay's professional investment management approach. He initiates each new client relationship with a comprehensive financial inventory before developing a personalized Financial/Retirement Funding Plan. The Financial Plan is essential to structuring a specific and personalized risk-appropriate investment management strategy designed to meet the client immediate and long-term personal and financial goals.

Jay is FINRA-register and holds a Series 3, 7, 63, and 65 as well as licenses for life insurance and annuities.

Jay lives in Scottsdale, Arizona with significant other Susan Kienzle. Jay has two grown sons, Blake, a Phoenix, Arizona Attorney, and James a Sunnyvale California computer design consultant.
