Debbie Gallant is a Rockville, MD fee-only financial planner. Gallant Financial Planning provides comprehensive and objective financial planning to help clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions.

I am Debbie Heffernan Gallant, a Certified Financial Planner™, Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor, and Financial Life Planner located in Montgomery County, Maryland, a lovely suburb of Washington DC. I founded Gallant Financial Planning, a Registered Investment Advisor firm, in 2008 after 11 years as a consultant to Federal environmental programs followed by 16 years running an independent, small business. Now, as a Certified Financial Planner and fiduciary, I am delighted to be providing services to clients to increase their well being.
 
As a fee-only advisor, I act as a fiduciary and work solely to serve your best interests at all times. As we build your plan, we build a relationship: at Gallant Financial Planning, you’ll receive expert, caring advice – not a sales presentation. You can look forward to focused, personal attention from me in a friendly, warm and relaxed environment. Finances are stressful enough - planning doesn't have to be!
 
I am a Certified Financial Planner™, Registered Investment Advisor, Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor, Chartered Financial Consultant and Registered Life Planner and specialize in client-centered financial life planning. As a fee-only advisor, I am active in the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA) as well as the Financial Planning Association. I am immediate past President of the DC Metro chapter study group for NAPFA.

As a mom, daughter in law, wife, and community oriented person, I add my own life experiences along with my years of financial experience to my investment education and expertise in tailoring advice to your specific goals and preferences.
 
I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and help design the path to your financial and personal dreams.
