Having worked in the financial industry since 1992, Tanya’s breadth and depth of experience and education allows her to provide clients with a unique approach to wealth management and retirement planning. Her clients receive the personalized service and attention to detail of a boutique-style practice, backed by the resources and security of a global, world-class financial institution.
For Individuals and Families:
Tanya works with people through all stages of life believing it is never too early or too late to begin planning for retirement. She advises clients on how much to save and appropriate investment strategies during their working years. She also helps clients navigate the uncertainty that accompanies the major life transition into retirement by helping them to transform their life savings into a reliable income stream, once provided by their paycheck. She works with clients to manage their cash flow and investments so they can maintain their lifestyle while weathering the significant costs of health and long-term care, and to fulfill their other financial goals such as travel, aging in place, or transferring assets to next generations or charities.
Tanya works with business owners to create customized 401(k) and other Employer-Sponsored Retirement Plans designed to maximize benefits based on their personal and business needs. Through Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, Tanya helps Plan Sponsors mitigate their liability through systematic reviews, a transparent and competitive fee structure and providing access to 3(21) fiduciary services with an open-architecture, non-proprietary investment platform. Employee education is also provided to help employees become retirement ready.
