A little bit more about Hali...
Way back in 1993, I got my start working for a one-person RIA run by a retired Navy commander. He instilled in me the value of processes and accountability, and the love of working with and being a part of my clients’ financial journeys. These values still ring true nearly three decades later.
I am a proud Boston University graduate (go Terriers!) and received my MBA from University of Maryland. I spent 18 years running my own Registered Investment Advisor Practice, and I created a 501(c)3 to provide financial planning and education to underserved communities. I believe financial literacy has the power to change individual lives and the world.
I came to the Fool because the sense of humor and Foolishness I found at Motley Fool Wealth Management drew me in immediately, and today, I count myself lucky to be a part of a team that takes our commitment to our clients seriously.
Some of my strongest values as a Wealth Advisor come from my earliest influences – my father, whose entrepreneurial ventures taught me the valuable combination of hard work, iteration, and the willingness to try new things; and my grandmother, whose love of betting on her nightly games of mahjong and cards taught me a lot about financial risk and having fun.
My goal is to help people enjoy their hard-earned assets. I want clients to feel comfortable in the decisions they are making and to help them discover the happiness that is balancing what we want with what we need.
