the personal side

Your family is worthy of a bright financial future, and I want to help get you there! Here are some of my roles: mother of three young boys, wife of Bryan, faith-believer, business owner, lover of all things Spanish, and bona fide numbers geek.

One certain thing in life is change, and life events can have a big impact on this evolution. Upon graduating from Saint Louis University in 2004, my career prospects were great. I had the privilege of working in client-facing roles at Deloitte and Matter Family Office for several years; yet my perspective changed as our family expanded. Long commutes, mom guilt, and minimal family time wore on me. Kids are only young once, and I want to be there for the moments that count. Entrepreneurship affords me the flexibility to pursue professional and personal goals, simultaneously. Do you share a similar mindset? If so, I’d love to talk with you.

As a fee-only fiduciary, my clients’ best interests always come first. WorthyNest is a safe space for families to reflect on their financial and life history, values, and goals. You will probably enjoy working with me if you share some of these characteristics:

-Family-minded: cares about family’s wellbeing and struggles with prioritizing it all

-Faithful: walks by faith, not by sight

-Generous: desires to lead a life of significance, thoughtfully enriching the lives of others through time, talent, and treasure

-Opportunistic: embraces change if it opens the door to a brighter future

-Relationship-oriented: values a long-term, trusted relationship with a professional advisor who truly cares

WorthyNest offers quality, affordable financial planning and investment guidance for families — regardless of asset level. In my opinion, your worth cannot be defined by a number in the balance sheet. My speciality? Helping family-minded entrepreneurs explore the intricacies between business and personal finance. But there is also a special place in my heart for any family wanting to build and sustain long-term wealth.
