Financial Advisor, Founder
Fee-Only financial planner located in Colorado Springs, CO, serving clients locally and across the country
Linda Leitz is a Colorado Springs, CO fee-only financial planner. Peace of Mind Financial Planning, Inc. provides integrated financial planning to help widows and windowers and individuals experiencing divorce organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions. As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial advisor, Linda Leitz is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.
Providing financial planning is much more than a career for Linda Leitz – it’s a lifelong mission. She believes that all individuals and families can feel in control of their finances and have money help provide them the life they want. To have more in depth understanding of how people work through their financial concerns and to provide better support to her clients, Linda obtained a PhD in Personal Financial Planning. Because she believes that consumers are best served by a strong financial planning profession with rigorous standards, she has given her personal time and efforts to organizations that further the profession, having been appointed to the 2016-2017 Certified Financial Planning Board Commission on Standards and having served as Chair of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors. Linda has three children and her hobbies include reading, hiking, and movies. (She also enjoys knitting, but we all agreed that’s too boring to put on the web site.)
