Financial Paraplanner

I joined Blakely Financial in April 2024, bringing with me a wealth of experience in real estate and mortgage lending. Over the years, I’ve had the privilege of guiding clients through complex financial decisions. Whether it’s negotiating favorable mortgage terms, navigating intricate real estate transactions, or other complex financial decisions, I’ve always been committed to delivering an exceptional experience.  I’m passionate about helping individuals and families navigate the complexities of financial planning, and I look forward to the opportunity to serve clients at Blakely Financial.

I currently reside in Marblehead, MA with my husband and two sons. In my spare time, I enjoy staying active through workouts, yoga and stand-up paddleboarding. I love being outdoors, whether it’s walking my dog, spending time at the beach, or on the baseball and football fields watching my boys play!
