Rachel Eaton joined Merrill Lynch Wealth Management in 2016 with 15 years of experience in the financial services industry. She began her career as a senior accountant with Deloitte and Touche and today she utilizes her attention to detail as she analyzes clients’ portfolios.
Rachel has a depth of experience working with professionals, including those in the healthcare industry who are established in their careers, nearing, or already in retirement. Although each client is unique, they all lead busy lives and don’t always have the time to effectively oversee their wealth management needs. As a result, they often turn to Rachel to guide them through the complexities of their retirement pension plans and to create investment strategies designed to generate income and help maximize their retirement savings.
An engaged listener, her consultative approach to managing clients’ wealth begins with simple conversations. Rachel seeks to understand the goals clients have for themselves and their families. What do they need their money to help them achieve? What are the things that might be preventing them from achieving those goals? By asking detailed questions, Rachel helps to uncover issues clients might not have considered and help them set realistic retirement income planning goals. Her goal is to give her clients the best life possible with the resources they have available.
Supported by Registered Client Associate, Travis Barnhard for more than seven years, Rachel believes that every client deserves superior service. She enjoys interacting and spending time with clients and has been told on numerous occasions that she has the ability to explain complex subject matters in easily understandable language.
Rachel earned her bachelor’s degree in business management with an emphasis in finance from Sacramento State University. She and her husband, Kurt, live in Rocklin, where they enjoy gardening, hiking and spending time with friends and family. They are also the proud parents of three “fur” babies, one of who is trained as a therapy dog and takes weekly visits to Memory Care, a home for dementia patients. An avid supporter of animal rights and welfare, Rachel is also a former board member of her local animal shelter.
I follow the deep-seated Merrill tradition of participating in the communities we serve. This drives my interest in spending time volunteering with organizations in our community.
