About Sheila Padden
My background as a CPA, and my frustration working with a variety of professionals for our personal finances, but having no one pulling it all together, led me to get my CFP and open my own practice. My comprehensive planning work includes goal setting, but in my experience, goal setting is just the start. Life planning brought goal setting to a new level, and really brings vigor and focus on what\\\'s really important for me and my clients. I love what I do!
I am fee-only, so no commissions - ever. I am a fiduciary, and I am committed to act in your best interests. I charge a flat fee retainer, which includes financial life planning.
