A Financial Planner for Generation Y.
Hi, I’m Mary Beth!
I’m on a mission to embolden my generation to get on the right financial track by helping them to make smart, educated decisions with their money. I utilize a fun and educational approach in working with professional and entrepreneurial women, young couples and families, and military families to help them organize and gain confidence in their financial lives.
What does that mean for you?
I’m going to help you live a stress free life around money. Together, we’ll work to ensure you’re:
- setting up the right retirement accounts
- choosing appropriate investments
- putting a spending plan in place
- figuring out how much to save and where to save it
- paying off debt efficiently
- deciphering your employee benefits, and more
Let’s be honest. You work hard and life is busy.
You don’t want to spend your time worrying about the things you can take control of.
How did I end up here? I grew up with a lot of uncertainty, fear and confusion around money and learned early on the kinds of problems it can cause in life. Paying my own way through college, I found myself with a position in a financial planning firm. It was there that I learned many others were experiencing the same fear and stress I had, but instead of living with it – they were ditching it! I immediately switched my major to financial planning and soon after learned what having control of your money instead of letting it control you really means.
Why work with those in their 20s-40s? I was lucky enough to actually major in money. My friends and peers had other passions to pursue. There is a huge disconnect between today’s education system, financial planning firms, and the availability and accessibility of financial information and guidance for this age group. Translation: There is none.
You need and deserve unbiased, honest financial advice that makes money fun again. Your money should be utilized towards living a life you love.
That’s where Workable Wealth comes in.
How am I different? I’m a far cry from the financial planners your parents may have. When it comes to money and finances, education and compassion are key. I make sure to talk through any topics you don’t understand, organize information in a way that makes sense, always look out for your best interest, never judge, and even when it’s tough, tell you the things you may need to hear.
