Meet Sarah Paulson, CFP®, owner of Valkyrie Financial located in Appleton, WI.
Helping people define their life aspirations and getting their money in line with those dreams is what LIGHTS. ME. UP. And I’m doing it while making personal finance less intimidating. It is the reason I became a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. I focus on empowering people – women and the rising generations – to take control of their financial lives.
If money is a tool you aren’t really sure how to use, I encourage you to reach out to me. I want to develop a long-term relationship to understand your unique situation and present recommendations to fit you. Let's find your wealth, together.
In my spare time, you can find me passionately advocating for women’s rights – I currently hold a seat on the board of the Women’s Fund for the Fox Valley Region – and burning off my extra energy through kickboxing, strength training, running, and/or cross-country skiing. All this activity is necessary because I bake the best cakes and cheesecakes; ask nicely and I might share a piece!
What I do…
- Translate money jargon to normal English.
- Meet you wherever you are.
- Reassure you that there are no stupid money questions.
- Empower you.
Valkyrie does financial planning with an emphasis on coaching and empowerment. The firm is designed to take a complete look at a client's financial picture (building and sticking to a budget, saving, debt analysis, retirement accounts, investment allocation, insurance, estate planning, and on, and on...), with bite-sized meetings monthly to tackle one important assignment. This way the client starts to consistently pay attention to their financial picture and - more importantly - feel like they understand what is happening. Clients also receive a resident financial expert-on-retainer and an accountability partner.
