She earned an Executive Certificate in Financial Planning from John Carroll University in 2006. According to Angela: "You work hard for your money, and I develop strategies to make sure it’s working hard for you. I advise my clients on the issues that matter most to them: a comfortable retirement, a good education for their children and protection for their families. I work one-to-one with clients to identify short and long term goals, then supply the knowledge and advice they need to feel confident that they are making informed financial decisions for their family’s future. I provide sound financial advice to help my clients achieve financial independence and the ability to fund new design projects to have well-being independence in their homes."
