As Oprah said, “I hope the way you spend your money is in line with the truth of who you are and what you care about. I hope that your money brings joy to you and the ones you love. And I hope you use it as a powerful force for good to fulfill your best intentions." - Lori Lustberg, JD, CFP®, CDFA®, CeFT®

The goal of all professionals at Pathway Financial Advisors is to illuminate clients' paths and provide support for the discovery and pursuit of fulfilling lives. While our offices are located in South Burlington, VT, and Atlanta, GA, we serve clients all over the country.

Lori Lustberg is a South Burlington, VT fee-only financial planner. Lori specializes in working with women facing a life transition who seek to become financially empowered and take charge of their destiny, and couples who value a long-term relationship with a financial planner. 

Pathway Financial Advisors, LLC, provides comprehensive financial planning including estate planning and tax planning, as well as investment management, and retirement planning to help high net-worth clients organize, grow and protect their assets through life’s transitions.

As a fee-only, fiduciary, and independent financial planner, Lori Lustberg is never paid a commission of any kind, and has a legal obligation to provide unbiased and trustworthy financial advice.

Lori Lustberg joined Pathway in March 2019 and brings over a decade of combined experience in the financial and legal fields.

Prior to joining Pathway, Lori was the principal of Lori Lustberg, Esq., LLC, providing mediation and divorce financial planning services to individuals and couples. Through her personal and professional experiences, Lori witnessed the power of financial planning to transform lives, which inspired her to make a mid-life career change to focus mainly on life-long financial planning relationships.

Lori is passionate about working with high-net-worth women facing a life change (such as divorce, widowhood, a career shift, empty nest or retirement), who seek to become financially empowered and take charge of their destiny.

One of Lori’s specialties is long-term financial planning for high-net-worth couples, bringing a unique breadth and depth of experience as a former financial mediator. Couples who work together with a financial planner are much more likely to enjoy a happy, healthy partnership. It is one of the best investments you can make in your long-term happiness as a couple.
