Financial Professional, Mediator

Susan Austin is an independent CDFA®. Through life’s twists and turns and 30+ years in financial and analytical positions, she believes all roads have led to her current CDFA® practice. She is humbled each time she is invited to walk with a couple through one of the most life-changing and difficult transitions. Her calm and understanding demeaner, along with rational and realistic financial projections, and most importantly information and education, are peppered with creativity and sometimes “outside-the-box” thinking.
