About Michelle Smalenberger, CFP®

I have a passion for helping others develop a path to financial success!

Through different lenses on your financial picture, I want to help create solutions with you that are thoughtful of today and the future.

I have seen in my life the power of having a financial plan while making slight changes of direction from time to time. I believe you can experience freedom from anxiety and even excitement when you know your finances are on track.

Those who are a great fit for our services are families working hard to provide for and support each other so they can be financially successful. Individuals who want to ensure they are making the right decisions to secure a strong financial foundation to build upon for the rest of their life are also a great fit.
