As a fee-only financial planner, my focus is to offer unbiased financial advice to help you achieve your life goals. - Danielle Harrison, MBA, CFP®, CFT-I®™
Fee-Only financial planner located in Columbia, MO, serving clients locally and across the country.
Danielle Harrison is a Columbia, MO fee-only financial advisor serving clients locally and across the country. Harrison Financial Planning provides holistic financial planning and investment management to help busy professionals and business owners, those preparing for retirement, and those in retirement organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Danielle Harrison is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Danielle Harrison’s fascination with finance began before she even started kindergarten when she discovered the magic of compound interest while saving her birthday and holiday money in her passport savings account. In 5th grade when asked to draw what she wanted to be when she grew up, she didn’t draw the customary teacher, doctor, or singer, but rather a stockbroker. And in middle school, instead of reading the typical teenage magazines, her father purchased her subscriptions to Money Magazine and Kiplinger (of which she was recently quoted in their June 2020 edition). Her investment philosophy may have changed substantially since that time, but her interest in financial planning never went away.
Prior to beginning her financial planning career she worked as a mortgage lender while attending graduate school and spent seven years as a commercial lender.
As a financial planner, Danielle has been able to combine her love of finances and passion for helping individuals into a fulfilling career.
In her downtime, she spends her time with her husband, Jonathan, Group Practice Manager at the local Veterans’ Hospital, her two young sons, William and Alexander, and their dog, Carson.
