GAIN PEACE OF MIND.
You’re a superstar gen x woman.
You want to know whether you’re on track to attain your goals. My mission is to earn your trust, and put you on the path to financial freedom.
Beyond the numbers.
I work with women whom I call “Humble Female Superstars”. You’ve worked hard and ascended to a mid-level or senior position at a public (or soon-to-be public) Bay Area company. You’ve dutifully contributed to your 401(k) over the years. And you have a basic understanding of your equity comp, whether ESPP, RSUs, or stock options.
You’ve been meaning to contact a financial planner, but something held you back: a demanding job, or even negative emotions like dread or embarrassment. Whatever it is, you’re now ready to find a trusted financial planner to help you to meet your goals. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER®, I believe in an open, collaborative, and non-judgmental approach to: (1) discovering your goals and dreams, and (2) creating a financial plan customized to YOU.
How I can help.
Helping my clients achieve their goals and dreams is one of my most important values. Financial planning is my calling, and I believe in its power to transform lives.
There is an avalanche of personal finance information out there. I want to help clients filter out the noise and answer, “How does this apply to me?” and “Will I have enough?” I choose to charge a flat fee rather than a percentage of a minimum portfolio size, which is often over $2 million in the Bay Area. Helping Gen X women build their wealth is deeply gratifying.
Outside of work, I’m a doting aunt, weightlifting and meditation devotee, cat lady, and Star Wars geek.

Prospective clients always have questions about their 401(k): “I don’t know if I’m contributing enough” “What investment(s) should I select?” “What the heck should I do with my old 401(k) plans?” Many clients are embarrassed to ask these questions because they are professionals (oftentimes with MBAs or other graduate degrees) who “should” know how to […]
