My favorite verse is, “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” I have seen this play out in my own life. My first career, in engineering, was beyond what I ever imagined. I met my husband at the company I worked for, and we now have three amazing daughters. After over 30 years in engineering, I went back to school and got my Masters in Personal Financial Planning, which led me to Foster Group. I love working with numbers, budgets, and especially mentoring people. I love that Foster Group is fee-only and that clients’ goals are always the first priority. I look forward to helping clients achieve their financial goals.

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family. We love the outdoors, including biking, hiking and all things lake life related. I especially enjoy paddle boarding and kayaking.
