Our goal is to help our clients alleviate their areas of money stress, so they can have sustainable financial situations and be resilient in the face of all life can throw at them.
To us, a successful relationship means the client feels good about their money – where it is and what it’s doing for them.
We have experience and knowledge, but it’s only through true collaboration with you that we make an impact. We are your partners, your team; we’ve got your back.
We meet you where you are. Wherever you’re coming from and whatever you’re coming with is perfectly fine. We create a safe space to have the very personal conversations that happen around money. Everything is held in the strictest confidence.
You will feel cared for, capable and confident. And we’ll probably have some fun along the way.

Before transitioning into financial services, Stephanie held a wide variety of jobs, including working at the U.S. Department of Commerce in Washington, DC; teaching people more than twice her age how to confidently handle a sailboat at the Annapolis Sailing School; and organizing stimulating educational events for high school students at the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia.
