Creating Financial Plans Through Conversation

Who We Help

Our passion is helping the “Sandwich Generation.”  This generation has trouble attaining personal goals while also supporting kids and aging parents. Even if money is on the table, time and confidence is often lacking. If you’re overwhelmed about how to move forward for yourself or parents  – you’ve come to the right place.

Why We're Different

Breaking ground for those reluctant or unable to invest heavily in financial advice, we’re a fee-only fiduciary focused on your goals. Powwow’s billing is hourly, tailored to fit your needs and budget.  Investment management is an option, NOT a requirement, and we don’t earn from commissions or referrals. We’re more than financial advisors; we’re planners for your whole financial journey.

How We Deliver

Because the demands of family are unpredictable, we do not require office visits. Powwow offers a virtual planning portal that allows you to make progress at your convenience. During our conversations we’ll utilize interactive tools that illustrate your current financials, goals and “what-ifs.” Find out how easy planning can be with our free goal assessment.

Our portal keeps you on top of your finances!

My Story...

For years I was my father’s primary caregiver, who was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at age 70 and living half way across the country. Despite my background in wealth management, managing his affairs and diagnosis was trial by fire. If that wasn’t enough, my own life was on fast forward. I sat for the CFP® exam, switched jobs, bought a house, got married, and started a family. Just when the dust seemed to settle my father passed away. If this sounds like your reality, let’s powwow.
