Amanda has been in the financial services industry since 2010 and joined Wealthspire in 2020. As a Certified Financial Planner™ and a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst®, Amanda has made it her life’s mission to ensure that every woman, in any walk of life, understands her wealth in a real and meaningful way.
As a CDFA® professional, since 2014, Amanda has specialized in helping clients determine the short-term and long-term financial impacts of any proposed divorce settlement. Her background in financial planning has provided her with the necessary skills to analyze and provide expertise to both clients and attorneys related to the financial issues of divorce. Amanda believes that women have a valuable seat at the wealth management table and is passionate about guiding couples, divorcees, and widows to their own financial empowerment.
In 2021, Amanda was included in InvestmentNews’ 40 Under 40 list and she was named an Advisor to Watch by AdvisorHub in 2022. Amanda is a frequent speaker on financial topics at industry conferences and has been quoted in Barron’s, CNBC, and many other media platforms.
She is an active member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA), where she serves as Co-Chair of the Women In Finance Committee for the Maryland Chapter and is actively involved in the Howard County Collaborative Professionals group as Vice President. She also serves on the Advisory Council of the McDaniel College Women's Leadership Network.
Alongside her sister, Amanda co-authored, “The Health & Wealth Sisters 360° Action Plan: Total Self-Care for the Modern Woman’s Fiscal, Physical, and Emotional Well-Being.” She hopes this book will show women that putting themselves and their health and wealth first is the most selfishly selfless thing they can do for themselves, their friends, and their families!
In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her friends and family, traveling, and being active. Amanda currently resides in Sykesville, Maryland with her husband, three daughters, and their two labs.
“I love seeing women cross the bridge to financial empowerment – and recognizing with confidence that they made a solid decision that will impact their lives. Watching that transition and helping my clients make that leap is deeply rewarding.”
