Prism Financial Planning, LLC
Hourly, Fee-Only Financial Planner serving the Issaquah, WA area.
Amy has been working in the financial industry for over 25 years (although she took a break to stay home and take care of her young children). She has loved studying the markets since she took her first undergraduate class in economics. She continued her studies a few years later when she earned an MBA in Finance. Her MBA was required when she set a goal of becoming a mutual fund portfolio manager, which she was for almost ten years.
Amy's studies continued after her children started school when she began the rigorous process of becoming a Certified Financial Planner™. Six college-level courses, one two-day exam, and 3 years of work experience later Amy earned the right to call herself a CFP®.
Amy finds helping her clients unravel and clarify the financial possibilities open to them to be the most satisfying and important job she's ever had. Contact her today to see how she can help you!

Amy Goan is a Member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors
The National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) is the country’s leading professional association of Fee-Only financial advisors - highly trained professionals who are committed to working in the best interests of those they serve.
NAPFA members live by three important values:
- To be the beacon for independent, objective financial advice for individuals and families.
- To be the champion of financial services delivered in the public interest.
- To be the standard bearer for the emerging profession of financial planning
My goal in creating Prism was to build a financial planning business where I would send my family and friends, if they were in need of financial guidance. I would want them to work with someone knowledgeable about investments, as well as all other aspects of financial planning. I would also insist they work with a fiduciary, to ensure their best interests are always protected.
As a CFP® and fiduciary who gets paid on an hourly basis, my clients only pay for the financial advice they need, and nothing more. Because I only offer my expertise, and never sell any products, my clients know they're getting unbiased help with no conflicts of interest.
