About Our Guest: 

Kathleen spent the early part of her career in real estate, buying and selling properties in Atlanta In 2008, despite a lifetime of prudent financial decision making, Kathleen and her family’s lives were turned upside down because of the Financial Crisis. That year of uncertainty taught Kathleen one critical lesson: even the most even-keeled, organized, financially prudent women need a professional guiding them. She became a financial advisor the following year with the mission of ensuring women never face the same uncertainty and panic she felt in 2008. She has been running a financial practice for nearly 15 years and serves women all over the country, helping them plan for life’s unexpected and live the life of their dreams.
