This week I sat down with one of Workable Wealth’s very own Financial Planners, Ariel Ward, CFP®.

She is passionate about helping professionals in their 20s-40s understand their financial lives and make better decisions with their money.

Ariel is married to a pilot and spends as much time as possible exploring the US with her husband and 2 children.

She is a member of NAPFA, the XY Planning Network and the Financial Planners Association.
