Stephanie J. Alvarez – Financial Advisor, Educator & Financial Literacy Advocate
When I was a teenager walking to school I used to dream about the life I would have when I grew up. I dreamed of retiring my mom, traveling the world, being my own boss, living life on my terms, and helping other families like mine become financially free.
I know that lack of financial planning can lead to home loss, inability to send kids to college, inability to retire, family discord, marital difficulties, divorce, and health issues due to stress. I am passionate about helping families become financially free so that they never have to worry about their financial futures.
