About Tyler Hackenberg, CFP®, EA

As a Catholic, you look at money differently: it’s not your own but rather a gift from God to be used with prudent discernment.

And you need a financial advisor who views it the same way.

At Drexel Day Financial, you’ll receive financial advice from a faith-based, non-judgemental perspective – because I share your same values and can help you chart a course towards God’s future.

AUTHENTICALLY CATHOLIC – As a Catholic financial advisor, my passion is helping other Catholics eliminate financial barriers to living out their vocations. That’s why all of the services are aligned with the USCCB’s guidelines for investing your money morally.

INTO THE DEEP – How much easier would it be to answer God’s call if your finances were aligned with your spiritual goals? God is the ultimate planner, and my job is to help you discern and put that plan into action through structures that enable you “put out into the deep” and trust His providence.

About Gordon Achtermann, CFP®, CSRIC

I get it. Finding a Financial Planner that is a good match for you is not easy. The alphabet soup of credentials and terms can be confusing. I have been fortunate to have already served clients from coast to coast and from Alaska on down while based in Fairfax, VA. Why?

Like most firms, at Your Best Path we provide comprehensive financial planning, retirement planning, and investment management to help our clients.

There are a few things about my practice are different from the great majority of planners.

– The focus is exclusively on families in their peak earning years.

– Your Best Path serves individuals and families from from all walks of life. Therefore, I have no minimums for planning or asset management.

– As of 1/1/2022 our average managed asset household had $4 million under our management because I do not push asset management unless your situation is too complex for you to manage yourself, or you prefer to delegate that activity.

– I am a leader in the field of Sustainable, Responsible, and Impact Investing (SRI), having received the CSRIC designation – the first-ever certification for study in the investing with while considering Environmental, Social, and Governance

– I also have expertise developed over years working with clients from many branches of the Federal Government so I understand the intricacies of their various benefit programs.

Ethan Miller, CFP®

About Ethan Miller, CFP®

Hi, I’m Ethan. I became a financial planner and CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional because I saw how too many of my peers were simply unprepared for the complex financial decisions that come with living under capitalism. These decisions can have deep, lasting impacts, and I am passionate about working with clients to help set and reach financial goals without falling in one of many potential pitfalls that we all face every year.

My background as a union organizer shapes a lot of my work as a financial planner. I have a deep understanding of the fundamentally unfair structures that govern our financial lives, and in addition to working with clients to plan for and implement long-term financial plans, I continue to be involved in local and national efforts to create a more just economic system.

My clients typically share my concerns about the systemic problems in our economy, and many spend their working lives to change our economic and political systems for the better. I understand the values and priorities of public service and social justice professionals, and as your guide, I want to help you make the most of your finances and tackle topics such as saving, investing, paying off student loans, retirement planning, saving for your children’s education, buying a home, and much more.

By working together, you can be confident in your financial decisions and trust that you are building a sustainable financial future.

Carey Morgan, CFP®, ChFC®

About Carey Morgan, CFP®, ChFC®

Hi there. I’m Carey, a partner and financial advisor at Livelihood, LLC. We started our firm because so many of our friends and colleagues were seeking sound and simple financial advice for an affordable price. We specialize in helping people who may not be a good fit for the traditional financial sector – creatives, idealists, non-profit workers, academics, and others who value relationships, experiences, education, and financial security over material wealth. I really enjoy working with people who have dedicated their lives to making their world a better place through service, art, education, and philanthropy. These are all areas I know well. I started my career managing bands and helping musicians sort out their money. The personal finance bug bit me and I joined a huge investment firm to learn that side of things. While the big corporate life wasn’t the best fit for me, I also became really interested in how our everyday spending and investment choices can really impact the community. So, I changed gears to the nonprofit sector, leading a hunger nonprofit, launching a citywide financial counseling program, and directing a private foundation focused on economic empowerment for women. One of the things I get most excited about is the potential for change through ethical investing. In my humble opinion, doing good and doing well are not mutually exclusive.
