Purse Strings engages top-tier financial professionals who are willing, ready and able to serve a female market. Our Purse Strings Approved Professionals (PSAPs for short!) are financial professionals who have:

  • Clearly articulated their desire to serve a female market
  • Earned designations that set them apart to help women (such as CDFAs or CDS)
  • Created careers that uniquely serve women in situations where help wasn’t easily found - like Widowhood, Financial Abuse, Post-divorce financials to name a few.

Many of our professionals come with their own stories and experiences which led them to help women and make an impact in the financial industry. Our professionals are handpicked or referred to us by current PSAPs. All Professionals go through an interview process and all licenses and designations are validated. Purse Strings Approved Professionals are provided ongoing training, education and expert resources that continually help them sharpen their skills to serve a female market.

One of the reasons I enjoy working with women so much is their strong desire to help others. The areas of finance I work within are not always the most pleasant of topics and the women are often times more attuned to the importance of financial security in their family and business. Additionally, they look at the bigger purpose of the financial work being done and expand those conversations with friends and family.

After 20+ years in the medical profession, I noticed that everyday people could not afford our services. I have become passionate about helping families understand how to plan for the future. One of the key aspects I help with is debt elimination. When a family gets out of debt, they are able to save money to purchase what they need or they can invest in the future. I can help with this as well. I educate families in different ways they can invest in the future. I help families with affordable estate planning documentation (wills and trusts).

    How does your current professional add up?

    We want women to surround themselves with a talented and thoughtful team of experts who will help them plan for their future. Yet, we are keenly aware that so many providers in these industries lack the skill set to work with women and their unique needs.

    There are things to look for when finding the right professional for your needs: flexibility, empathy, creativity, strategy, and work style. Take the questionnaire and find out how your current pro stacks up—and if you could use the advice of a Purse Strings Approved™ Professional who’s qualified to meet your expectations.
