Lauren Zangardi Haynes
Spark Financial Advisors
Fee-Only financial planner located in Williamsburg and Richmond, VA, serving clients locally and across the country
Are you a busy professional or entrepreneurial woman? Perhaps you are part of a dual-career household? Either way, you know what it means to be busy. You may be wondering:
“How do I free up more time to enjoy my hard work?”
"Am I doing the right thing with my money?"
"How do I know if I'm on-track?"
I’m a mom (x3) and a business owner. If there’s one thing that I could use more of, it’s time! Like you, I’m working hard to balance everything I love about life — work, family and fun.
I help clients make crucial decisions around creating financial freedom, saving for college, managing the cash flow of a high-income household, reducing taxes, investing and making an impact on our world.
I am a firm believer in the transformative power of a financial plan. Not as an iron-clad tome but as a constantly evolving map that adjusts as life changes. The best part of my job is getting to know what my clients cherish and helping them build it into their plan.
Over the last 13 years I've worked for an excellent Fee-Only financial planning firm and as a Portfolio Analyst for U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management. While I was with U.S. Trust I earned my CFP® designation and became a Certified Investment Management Analyst through a program sponsored in part by the Wharton School of Business.
Let's connect and see if we are a good fit to work together. I look forward to hearing from you!
