About Beth

Beth bio.PNG

I’m passionate about empowering people to live their best lives! Women and young people, in particular, often have doubts about their decision-making capabilities…and this is where I can make a difference. With a Cornell MBA and decades of practice helping others make optimal decisions in business and community college settings, I bring broad and deep financial and life experience to bear on the issues that keep you awake at night.

 I believe in living the dream—I put myself through college and graduate school, then landed my dream job in finance in New York City. Seven years later, I left my career as an institutional investor to spend eight years sailing in the Caribbean, taking people on sailing and scuba diving vacations. Subsequently, I served my community by creating and running a community college internship program. And, while actively engaged in my career, for more than a decade I’ve been caring for my aging parents. Whatever your dreams are, I can help you take steps to bring them to life.
