I have been a single mother, divorced, a mom in a blended family, and now I am a widow. I also saw my role with my mother change when she reached age 90 and lost some of her independence. I became more of the "mother" and she became more of the "daughter".
I run a women's wealth management practice working with women in all stage of their lives. This does not mean I do not work with men, I do have men as clients, but the majority of my clients are women.
Typical stages of a woman's life are: building a career, being a wife, being a mother, and finding themselves suddenly alone. A woman can find herself suddenly alone due to divorce or loss of her loved one. Losing a loved one is not just for the older woman; loss can happen at any stage of life, and divorce is not just for the young. More and more women are facing divorce after 25+ years of marriage.
I believe women want true financial independence. But what does this look like and how does a woman go about building her "house of financial security?"
I believe I can help and I would be honored to be your financial professional of choice.
