How We Work

How We Work

A number of our family's life events have impacted how we engage with our clients.
My experience working for big banks, putting our four kids through college, and going through a personal PrairieFire experience developed the vision and motivation to create PrairieFire Wealth Planning. We bring that experience and empathy to our client interactions. Our goal is a long term relationship that offers your family peace of mind and clarity.

The PrairieFire team is made up of people that care about the success of others. We believe in fun, adventure and furry friends.
