Caroline works primarily with women investors to help them identify, prioritize and address the various aspects of their financial lives and related goals - including investments, values-based investing, life/career transitions, retirement income, philanthropic and estate planning services, education planning, providing for eldercare - and then commits herself to crafting strategies, based on the client's unique feelings and attitudes, that are designed to help her clients pursue desired outcomes.
