Kathy has more than 36 years experience in the financial services world, ranging from administrative assistant and branch manager to financial planning and asset management advice.
Starting her career with IRA and rollovers in the 1980's has made retirement planning her specialty. Tax minimization is important to many clients so Kathy works extensively with tax-advantaged investing. Asset allocation and risk management are important pieces in the investing puzzle, and Kathy uses all her experience and knowledge and strives to build a foundation for her clients' current income needs and future wealth. (note: asset allocation does not ensure a profit or protect against a loss.)
Kathy's early experience in administrative support and management helps her understand the nuances of the rules and regulations all advisors must follow. She can help clients easily navigate through these rules, and the financial paperwork maze to facilitate investing within these guidelines.
She holds her Series 7, General Securities Registration, Series 24 General Securities Principal Registration and Series 65, Uniform Investment Adviser Law Registration through LPL Financial and is a registered representative of the firm. She received BA degree from Mankato State University in Minnesota. She's volunteered with the Boys & Girls Club of Silicon Valley for over 25 years where she works with fund raising events.
In her spare time, she enjoys travel, wine collecting and cooking.
