As a Merrill Lynch financial advisor and steward of your wealth, Katie knows that financial decisions affect the world around you and takes care to make sure your money is directed and managed for responsible growth. As a member of the Gandy Group, Katie draws upon over 30 years of financial services knowledge to provide her clients with customized advice, exceptional service, environmental and social impact strategies, and a disciplined approach to investing.
Ultimately, your finances are part of larger experiences in your life, including your Health, Home, Family, Work, Leisure, and Giving. Katie works with individuals, families, and non-profits to understand their financial situation, risk tolerance, and liquidity needs. She helps her clients articulate their short-term and long-term goals, then recommends a financial strategy designed to achieve them.
Previously, you may have had to choose between personal goals and your commitment to the world. Now, by linking traditional investing, impact investing, and philanthropic endeavors, Katie helps you pursue your financial objectives and deepen your positive impact on the world without sacrificing financial returns.
In both her personal and professional life, she has spent the last decade pursuing her passion for sustainability and finance. She holds a deep knowledge of the impact investing community as a former environmental data sales manager and an institutional municipal bond sales associate. At Trucost, the environmental data arm of S&P Dow Jones Indices, she partnered with asset managers, foundations, and endowments to devise new strategies, indices, and funds directing capital to impact oriented investments. In her wealth management practice, she takes that same care and advisory by helping her individual and institutional clients align their values with their financial investments.
Katie is an active member of her community-- volunteering time and resources to many social impact and outdoor adventuring initiatives including Women in Sustainable Economy (WISE), Friends of the High Line, Women of Dartmouth, Ellevate Network, and Prospect Park Track Club (PPTC). She holds a bachelor’s degree in Environmental Studies and Economics from Dartmouth College.
In her spare time, Katie can be found training for a race, brushing up on her French, volunteering her time, or traveling to a new city at home or abroad.

*Peace of mind is an aspirational state of mind that clients hope to achieve. There are no guaranteed results following completion of the Goals-Based Wealth Management process because markets can fluctuate and investments can lose value. Advisors work with clients to help them understand how the goals based wealth management process can help to address their concerns, financial situation and priorities.
Helping you reach your goals starts with getting to know you personally. Through understanding what matters most to you, I can help you create a financial strategy that reflects your personality. Only then can I offer an approach that is built around your life priorities and the ongoing advice you need to help you manage fluctuations in the market and changes in your life. Let’s work together to help you achieve your goals.
