Cathy’s passion for helping others in their financial lives began when, at age 23, she lost her mother to a drunk driver. As she watched her father struggle to understand and take over the family finances while dealing with the loss of his life partner, she realized what a difference a financial advisor would have made in her family’s life. She dedicated herself to helping clients capitalize on the good times and deftly navigate the bad. She realizes life’s journey isn’t always a smooth one, but is committed to working hand in hand with her clients to make their life’s journey richer.

Janis has been helping clients and families manage their financial lives since 1992. While helping clients with tax planning and preparation, Janis realized that there was so much more she could do to help. At that time, many clients were using a broker instead of an adviser. Janis draws the distinction between a broker, whose job it is to sell you something, and an adviser, who is a financial partner helping you make good financial decisions.
