Are you ready to thrive financially and be at peace with your true self? I am thrilled to be a part of an outstanding group of financial professionals with the NFEC.

According to AARP, nearly two-thirds of U.S. women ages 40 to 79 have already dealt with a significant financial “life crisis,” such as job loss, divorce, the death of a spouse, or severe illness. When women in this age group experience these major life events, there is confusion, anxiety, and fear of the financial unknown.
Says Patty, “There are women from all socioeconomic, education and income backgrounds living lives of quiet financial despair because they feel financial shame and embarrassment preventing them from reaching out to other women or professionals. Having personally experienced divorce, being a single mom and living through financial disaster, I know first-hand the frustration of not knowing who to turn to.”
Patty takes a holistic approach and doesn’t believe in ‘tough love’ financial education or shaming people to get them to take action.
As such, she is changing the conversations, education, and advice around personal finance for women 40+ beyond budgets, spreadsheets and math to one of forgiveness, love, and hope, while incorporating strategic finance tools.
Her mission is to empower women 40+ to leave behind the confusion, anxiety, and fear about their finances to gain clarity, peace, fearless abundance and financial security.
She is the personal finance contributing author to Her Life Counts and partners with attorneys, accountants, and professionals serving women 40+.
Born and raised on Long Island, NY, she spent most of her career in the Midwest before relocating to Colorado with her family, where she currently resides.
