Help! (I Need Somebody…)
This week, our beloved dog sitter, Erika, is taking a much-deserved break from her regular routine…Milo included. So, Milo has been happily jumping in the car every morning to drop the kids at school and then come with me to Meridian.
As much as Milo loves the together time, I am missing our dog sitter. We count on her to keep Milo safe, comfortable, and happy every day—and when she is gone, that becomes my job, adding a little bit more to worry about during my day at the office.

This is our goal at Meridian: we want you to feel confident, calm, secure, and in control of your financial future. Our goal is to build a plan that helps you get to where you want to be, and then monitor your plan so we stay on track. We aim to free our clients from money worry so they can just relax and enjoy the journey.
Partnering with a planner that is professional, competent, and trustworthy leads to peace of mind about your financial situation. Just like partnering with Erika—who is professional, competent, and trustworthy with Milo—brings peace to my workspace… 😉
