About Harrison Hinz, CFP®

As we learned in 2020, nurses are a pillar of our everyday lives. They spend their careers helping others. Thank you, nurses, for what you do!

My wife is in nursing school and comes from a family of nurses. We have three kids now and hope to have some more down the road. With similar life experiences, combined with the CFP® designation, I both understand your struggles as a nurse and help you find a more clear direction on where you want your finances to go.

I specifically work with nurses that have young children or plan to have children in the next 5 years. Together we prioritize financial goals, discuss saving for child expenses, review cashflow/tax opportunities, plan for retirement, evaluate/establish investment portfolios, and navigate the ever-changing financial world.

I love being able to help nurses understand their financial picture and establish a plan for their future.

Are you ready to take control of your finances? Let’s Talk!

About Bryan Minogue, CFP®, CFA

I founded Kardinal Financial to leverage my experience and passion to serve growing families, and to do so in an honest, independent, and fiduciary setting. I know the impact financial stress can have on a family and strive to replace this uncertainty with confidence.

It’s the financial planning service and approach I am proud to provide.

I have over a decade of experience in financial services. My experience includes serving as the Director of Investment Research at a $2.5 billion wealth management firm and serving as an investment portfolio manager to individuals and families. I have obtained the Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) and Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designations. I continue to expand my skillset through industry associations and relentless self-study of articles, podcasts, and books.

I live in Madison, WI with my wife, Maggie, and daughter, Rose. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with family and friends, getting outside, taking long walks with a good podcast, watching soccer (Manchester United), and hanging out on Peloton (ride with me: miggsy).

About Alison James, CFP®, PMP

“A goal without a plan is just a wish.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery

I founded WorthWise Financial Partners because I believe that everyone needs a financial plan. I specialize in helping families of all shapes and sizes juggle saving for college and retirement while living a full life along the way. I particularly enjoy working with young families just starting to build wealth and helping LGBTQ families navigate their unique challenges.

I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, and a Project Management Professional® with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics and English from Rice University. Prior to founding WorthWise, I worked at Aon Hewitt for over 20 years working with large companies to help their employees protect their families and achieve financial goals through retirement and insurance programs. As I talked with friends and neighbors with growing families I recognized the challenges they faced juggling competing financial priorities. I also observed the missteps they often took through lack of the time or knowledge to successfully navigate their financial lives and the perception that financial planning was just for the already wealthy. I am now putting my decades of experience to work helping families turn their hopes and dreams into achievable goals!

I live in Houston, Texas with my husband and youngest son while my oldest attends college – a very expensive out-of-state private college I might add, so I know from personal experience how that can be! When I’m not working with my clients or reading about financial news and trends, I enjoy cooking, wine, gardening and SCUBA diving.

I look forward to meeting with you to discuss how I can bring financial peace of mind and confidence to you and your family and help you live the life you envision!

Michael McGeoghan, CFP®, CFA

About Michael McGeoghan, CFP®, CFA

I founded my own company in 2021, after spending almost 10 years in financial services with major insurance companies. I identified an opportunity to provide clients with unbiased, objective, fee-only, independent, holistic financial planning, and knew it was time I did something about it.

I am independent, meaning I am not tied to an investment company, bank, or insurance company, and I am free of conflicts of interest, and am registered with the States of Massachusetts, Connecticut, and other jurisdictions where exempt as a Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). My focus is on fee-only financial planning and helping you construct a roadmap to meet your goals, dreams, and aspirations. You can choose to take that plan and implement it on your own, with someone else, or with professionals I recommend; the plan is completely portable. What I provide is a service, not a product, and we’ll have an ongoing relationship and commitment that does not stop with one or two meetings. I evaluate the effectiveness of your plan periodically and meet with you to make sure the plan is being followed and executed to your satisfaction. Periodic meetings are important because life changes. My focus is on listening to you, absorbing all your desires, and servicing them to my fullest abilities.

I’m Michael, a Certified Financial Plannerᵀᴹ Certificant, and Chartered Financial Analystᵀᴹ Charterholder. I am married to the hardest working woman I know, and have three beautiful children. We currently reside in Florence, MA along with our two dogs. My happy family is what I consider my greatest achievement, and it is for them that I started in financial services, and now I want to help others care for their families. Before, I had no financial plan and had to ask myself tough questions: What happens if I decease my wife and children prematurely? How will they be taken care of? What if I were to be sick or sustain an injury outside of work for a prolonged period? Am I saving enough money for their education, and my own retirement? It was these questions, among others, that brought me to where I am today. It is my job to work collaboratively with you and give sound financial advice to help maximize your financial goals.

It would be my pleasure to work with you on navigating your financial journey, so please, contact me today and let me set up a no-cost preliminary introduction and fact-finding meeting. I would love to get to know more about you and those you care about.

Thank you!

Dan Herron, CFP®, CPA/PFS

About Dan Herron, CFP®, CPA/PFS

I founded Elemental Wealth Advisors because I believe everyone should have access to solid financial planning, period. No one should be turned away just because they don’t have a million-dollar portfolio or aren’t a higher income earner. Everyone, regardless of income or assets, has financial matters that they need to address. Our clients are those who are just starting to get their financial plans in order and who are eager to learn each step of the way!

We take an educational approach to the financial planning process and provide a means for everyone to construct and implement processes to achieve their financial goals. Together, we walk through and implement each aspect of YOUR financial plan. The financial services industry has made it difficult to see all investment costs and expenses. As a fee-only advisory firm, we believe in transparency. There are no hidden fees or surprises. We collaborate so that you will know what is going on every step of the way. This is how financial planning should be.

We work as fiduciaries, offering our clients support in every area of their personal financial lives. I’m also a CPA who looks at your whole picture including comprehensive tax planning. I earned my degree in Economics, and a Masters in Business and Portfolio Management. You’ll find me to be responsive, collaborative and down-to-earth.

When I’m not at the office, you’ll likely find me out running. I’m a Dad to an amazing furkid (below) and sometimes I even enjoy a real movie.
I look forward to connecting!

About Jonathan Huss, CFP®

Being the son of a CPA, I have always had a keen interest in finance. Along with my other two siblings, I spent a few tax seasons in my father’s office helping where I could and learning the basics of the tax universe. After my time at Virginia Tech, I spent 5 years in Northern Virginia in the hospitality industry, from country clubs to selling wine (fun!!). After the arrival of my first daughter, my wife, Emily, and I returned to our roots in Richmond. I joined his father at his firm in 2018 and made quick work of learning the financial planning world. My goal is to take the questions and stress out of my clients’ financial situation, so they can live the life they’ve always wanted. I believe that everyone should have access to a financial planner, whether they have substantial assets, or are just starting to save. You’ve got questions, the Hussmen have the answers!
