“My goal is to help the planners in our office and our clients pursue their financial and life goals however big or small those might be..”

I grew up in a family that moved around a lot.  My grandmother ran a beach club in Haiti and we lived there until the Revolution in 1985.  Soon we lived in Naples, FL and 5 years later we were up in the Boston area for the great schools.  My parents outlook was that you could do anything in life.

After I graduated from the University of Florida and followed my future husband to Boston, I worked on a trading floor in Operations for a Boston based firm.  I loved the intensity and variety that each day brought.  As much as I loved working, I finally found my calling as a Mom and decided to leave work to raise 2 lovely little girls.  I lacked any desire to move around and be as adventurous as my parents had been, instead I never tired of early mornings, homemade playdough and visits to Drumlin Farm.  When my youngest entered Kindergarten – I had empty nest syndrome!

The thought of working in Boston again seemed too far away from my family but I knew I needed to find the right balance which is not any easy task in the world of Finance.  As fate would have it, I met Abbey and learned of the unique approach Abaris Fianncial Group had towards helping clients not only with their financial goals but also their life goals.  I happily joined the group in 2017 and I am still able to get the kids off the bus every afternoon.  Our family of 4 just welcomed a cute black and white puppy named Piper and our life always seems to be happily hectic.

My passions include my family, Reading, Kayaking, hiking, everything about Maine
