Hi, I’m David Edmisten, CFP®. Next Phase Financial Planning works with corporate professionals who are planning to retire early, typically within the next 3 years. I can help you answer these important questions:
-Have I saved enough to retire early and not run out of money?

Hi! I’m Mike Allison. In 2022, I founded New Lantern Advisors, an independent, fiduciary, fee-only, longevity focused financial planning and investment management firm in order to serve clients more directly, after I retired from a 32 year career in the investment management industry.

About Anika Hedstrom, CFP®, MBA

As co-founder of Uplevel Wealth, I create thoughtful financial plans that help families design and lead intentional lives.

I’m committed to my work. Here’s why.

Once upon a time, I worked alongside exceptionally bright, accomplished professionals on investment trading floors and as an expat in SE Asia.

I was surprised to learn how few of these professionals had a vision for their own financial lives.

This dichotomy stuck with me.

Fast forward several years. I became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™, served accomplished professionals at a boutique wealth management firm, shared advice on how to make better money moves with NerdWallet, and went on to lead financial planning for clients at a large registered investment advisory firm.

I co-founded Uplevel Wealth to help professionals at the top of their game level-up, build wealth, and create plans for their possibilities.

When I’m not perfecting financial plans, you can find me downhill skiing, whitewater rafting, enjoying a glass of good Oregon pinot, or chasing after my young twins as they head in opposite directions.
