What makes a Pro certified? Find out.

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.

The mission of my practice is to empower women financially! For too long we have been left little space in the finance sector, as well as in financial planning. Women have long felt unheard and ignored by the "boy's club" that is the financial world, and my aim is to change that. I want to effect that change not only by existing as a woman and successful business owner in their space, but also by making sure my client list is reflective of that success. I want to see women succeed, and I want to help them take ownership of two thirds of the country's wealth in the next twenty years.
If you've felt like financial planning isn't for you, please reach out! Let's make that change together.

As a former art History and science nerd, I'm interested in people's stories, and committed to helping to solve complex problems. As a financial rep, that's exactly what I get to do for my clients all day long. I hang my licensure at Northwestern Mutual because I'm able to offer the best of the best, and am afforded the opportunity to plan comprehensively. My inbox is always open, and I'm happy to answer any questions about finance, not only for my clients, but for anyone who might ask. I do my best to help increase financial literacy wherever I can, and I'm always glad for the opportunity to do it.

  • I love classic Rock n' Roll! Did you know the Stones are still releasing music?
  • Despite my very high center of gravity, I have great balance and love to paddleboard.
  • My degree was in Art History- I made a big career move away from that, but I still love it.

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.
