Abby Turner Morton is a partner and planning director at Gather Financial® Planning, bringing to the company more than 20 years of experience in financial services. Abby has been providing fee-only financial planning services since 2004 when she started her own business as an independent financial planner.

Abby joined forces with her friend and colleague Michael Goldman and the Gather Financial® Planning team in 2018. Their like-minded values and commitment to providing accessible financial planning and advice made it easy to integrate Abby’s firm with Gather Financial® Planning.

Abby welcomes and enjoys working with clients of all types, regardless of age, assets or level of financial expertise. Her comprehensive financial planning services are available using a project-based or hourly model, giving clients added flexibility. Because Gather Financial® Planning’s approach is planning-centric, clients are not required to have wealth to begin working on their financial plan. The ability to meet clients where they are in their financial lives is central to how Abby begins a financial planning relationship.

Clients can receive assistance with their investments, retirement planning, cash flow and budgeting, debt reduction, and much more. Clients help create their own financial plans and collaboratively provide direction to address areas that are most important in their current season of life. Because Abby’s compensation comes directly from her clients, her only responsibility is to her clients.
