OUR TEAM

There is a human side to financial planning that is often overshadowed by broad blanket statements, generic recommendations, and buzzwords relating to current events. Too often these stereotype responses fail to address the individualized needs of a family.  Our greatest accomplishments come from partnering with families during life’s most joyous and challenging moments.  Helping families to create, understand, and implement a plan for their future is our top priority.  During this process we are inherently right beside you and your family, through all of life’s expected and unexpected events.

The team at Stage Harbor shares a very simple belief – when you are invited into a family to share their most joyous and vulnerable moments, you build a powerful bond and feel motivated to do everything in your power to do right by that family. We approach each engagement as an extension of our own family, often asking “what would we recommend for our own parents, siblings, and children”.  This core belief places the human side of financial planning above all else.
