Brightwater Financial

Spend more time doing what you love.

You’re busy and would rather spend time with your friends and family than worry about your finances or your taxes. Could you manage your finances on your own? Sure, but like having a coach or hiring a personal trainer, a financial planner holds you accountable and encourages positive growth.

Brightwater Financial takes a fresh approach to financial planning by discovering your personal values and creating a saving, investing, and spending plan that aligns with these values. I believe that your hard-earned money should also be working hard for you. The ethos of Brightwater Financial is based on authentic connection, and a genuine desire to help you better your life through financial assurance.
