As a Financial Advisor, Katie works with individual clients to assess their financial needs and long term goals with a particular focus on helping younger clients get started in their financial lives. With a one-on-one relationship, she creates and implements effective, personalized strategies that will help them achieve their goals through budgeting and savings plans, investment strategies and tax management.

As a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst, Katie consults on divorce-related matters, helping either couples or individuals in the pre-, during- and post-divorce stages to sort out their finances.
