To me, being a financial advisor is all about empowering others to make financial decisions that will help them live the life they want to live. With honest communication about values and goals, and ongoing education and support through life’s changes, we can ensure that clients have a trusted partner in charting and achieving their financial vision.
I am especially interested in helping investors use their assets to promote businesses and causes they believe in through sustainable, responsible, impact investing (SRI). That’s why I became one of the first advisors in Maine to receive the Chartered SRI Counselor™ certification. I believe that SRI investing is another way we can empower clients, by helping them integrate financial goals with their personal beliefs and interests to make investing a cohesive part of their lives.
Prior to joining Back Cove Financial, I worked in communications and development for nonprofit environmental organizations to help them gain the media attention, critical funding, and effective messaging tools they needed to further their missions.
My passion for the outdoors started in Maine’s woods–camping, hiking, skiing, biking, and whitewater rafting. Those experiences motivated me to earn a B.S. Environmental Science degree from the University of Vermont and inspired years of work to protect important natural areas for others.
I can still often be found in the Maine woods. I also love to play field hockey, cook, and go to concerts in Portland. My partner, Alex, and I live in Brunswick with our cats, Carrot and Witch, in a retro house we are constantly (and happily) renovating.
Giving back and supporting my community is especially important to me. I have been a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters for almost 5 years. I was selected as an advisor for the Olympia Snowe Women’s Leadership Institute to mentor young women at Oak Hill High School in Sabattus. I also volunteer on the Maine Conservation Voters’ events and development committee.
