Community Involvement

Women

Whether breaking glass ceilings, or leading our businesses and homes, women need a supportive financial team.

 

Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with great men.  I have found though, that women communicate differently - whether they need details to affirm their decision-making, or whether they need experience to weigh in on key issues.  The discussions tend to be intimate, but very specific.  You can expect that we want to try and understand what matters most to you.

Helping or Acting for Your Parents

Helping aging parents means stepping into someone else's shoes. 

This is a big step.  Sometimes it happens naturally and sometimes the responsibility comes on quickly.  It is important to understand the responsibility and accountability one bears coming into the role with your parent's Power of Attorney.  We have worked with hundreds of seniors over the years and assisted many adult children to bridge this gap in conversation, and in actual duties.




Specializations
Passion for Service

If you work in the charitable or not-for-profit sector, we share your passion for others.

Working with individuals in our business is a long-term relationship.  What makes that rewarding is working with people we connect with.  Passion for work in the charitable or not-for-profit sector can sometimes mean working for less in wages, or in an industry in constant transition.  You love the organization and those whom you serve.  You want to keep your eye on the organization which is so important to you.  Let us help you with your personal matters so you can do just that.
