7 Surprisingly Simple Tips for Investing Like a Professional.

Meet Lauren

Certified Financial Planner™
Certified Investment Management Analyst™

With over 13 years in the financial services industry working for U.S. Trust (Bank of America’s Private Bank) and a Fee-Only financial planning firm I’ve fielded a lot of questions. My favorite is, “How do I free up more time to enjoy my hard work?”

I’m a mom and a business owner. If there’s one thing that I don’t have enough of, it’s time! Like you, I’m working hard to balance everything I love about life — work, family and fun.

Building strategies for myself (and now for my clients) gives me the certainty I need to make crucial decisions about saving for college, budgeting for our next big purchase and knowing where and how to invest our money.

The best part of my job is getting to know what my clients cherish and determining how to build it into their plan. 

What’s your big dream?

Let’s talk about how to get there.
