Clients are often uncertain whether they need a Financial Plan or not.  Vicki is known for her ability to listen to a client's needs, concerns, interests, and goals, and to determine a strategy that is designed for that client's needs and goal.  Vicki has a calming yet witty approach when working with clients, as most of us can easily feel overwhelmed when dealing with our finances.  There are many layers and facets of financial planning, and Vicki helps clients wrap their hands around the information and strategies, and to not get stuck in financial lingo or jargon. In addition to her background and experience,  Vicki has access to the specialists at Cetera should a client's situation warrant it.
