Wealth Management Advisor

Didier and his family love living in Richmond. After moving to Virginia from Philadelphia at 16 years old, Didier finished high school at Godwin in the West End. He then graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a BS in Marketing, and soon after met his wife Sarah. Together, with their two children, they focus on serving their community. Didier serves on the Board of Directors for the Richmond-based non-profit Connor's Heroes, and provides ongoing support for World Pediatric Project and Alex's Lemonade Stand. When they're not in River City you'll likely find them attending a Florida State University football game as he is a proud Seminole booster. They're always ready to forge new friendships and embark upon new adventures.
