With her 16 years of experience in the financial industry, she has developed a philosophy that sound financial advice must include the emotional and human part of the equation. Of course the numbers are critically important, however Crystal’s approach also considers the client’s dreams, fears, biases, life experiences, gender, beliefs, cultural background, traumas, values, and the list goes on. It’s not only about helping women explore and set their goals, but also about getting them there in a way that feels safe and brings peace of mind to their lives.
