Experiences in your life and how you are raised impact your future as an adult. My father passed away when I was 7 and my mother worked very hard to raise me. She was one of 13 children and often reminded me that a strong work ethic , saving money, assisting others in need and having a vision are the foundations to achieving your goals.
In my early teens I had several jobs. In my 20's, I started my financial career which steered me to my true calling; assisting individuals and families in achieving their dreams and visions through life planning. Fast forward 20 plus years, I am President of an Independent Financial Planning firm with locations in Camp Hill and Hershey, PA. I have lived through the financial and emotional aspects of building a business, and planning for the succession of a business. Additionally, within my family, I have experienced the impact of Long Term Care planning, Alzheimer's, cancer and the unexpected passing of a loved one.
I founded our firm because I wanted to work with people who have similar ideals and beliefs; to put our clients' financial visions, goals and dreams first and help them in every aspect of their financial decisions. Our team's experience and desire to assist clients in making informed decisions in the Financial Planning process, before implementation of investments and products, is an important part of our planning. We are people first and advisors second, educating our clients for their successful future.
Achieving your goals may not always be a direct line or path. Reflecting on past experiences and appreciating where you are will inspire you to seek the enjoyment in what lies ahead.
Let's plan together and create new experiences in your future!
