Linda Coffey began her financial industry career because she was intrigued by the constantly changing markets. Her interest has been sustained for more than 20 years by the discovery that, while personal financial decisions can affect one's life physically and mentally, not everyone is interested or has exposure to complex financial-literacy tools. Linda joined EP Wealth Advisors in 2021. Her experience ranges from handling complex financial situations with many moving parts to developing financial plans. She specializes in helping divorcing individuals make informed financial decisions throughout the divorce process. An active volunteer and wish granter with Make a Wish and other non profits, Linda enjoys spending time outside the office with her three kids, at the gym, bike riding, trying new restaurants with family and friends, reading good books and walking the family dogs.
