She has revolutionized the conversation of wealth and worth by providing an opportunity to openly discuss the roles money plays in her client’s lives, enabling them to be passionately engaged in the world and to lead a rich life. She works with multi-generational families, helping them to concretize their values, develop a vision for their future, and create sound governance structures.
