I decided to launch the Portsmouth chapter of WBL because of the unexpected beneficial impact of the women I've met, become friends with, and worked with over the last 3 years. I am on a mission to recreate that for every woman who is interested.  I help women start saving, do-over, grow or preserve everything they've worked for so that they can be their best selves for the families and communities that they love. I believe that if you know you are on track to achieve your financial goals, then you can take the day off - whether to clean up the beach, help the homeless, assist veterans, work a food-pantry. Basically, to manage the balance between self-care (what IS THAT?!?) and family.  I came to Merrill to empower myself and then found a great deal of satisfaction encouraging and strategizing with other women by being open, loyal, and showing up.  I prefer working with other involved, heart-centered, proactive, engaged, giving women and businesses.
