LPL Financial Advisor

As a financial advisor with over 18 years of experience in the financial services industry, I recognized the importance and the need for investment education, wealth preservation, and accessibility to financial services. After witnessing firsthand roadblocks to equitable access to financial advising, I decided it was time for me to take a leap of faith to remedy this imbalance. In 2022 I founded my own firm, Marigold Financial Partners, with a driving force belief that everyone deserves access to a financial advisor. I work diligently to provide my clients focused holistic investment strategies, retirement planning, tax strategies, and estate planning. Through a multi-generational investment approach, I am dedicated to ensuring the totality of my client’s financial picture is considered while working with them through any life changes that might require us to pivot and adjust plans already in place.

The scope of my work also includes working with business owners to provide comprehensive support with retirement plan solutions, education, and resources. I strive to foster professional relationships with strategic partners so I may offer my clients additional value and resources. With the help and support of my family, I am driven to continue to make a difference in the lives of my clients and their families.

For me, it is important to continually sharpen my skills and increase my knowledge, to keep pace with an ever-changing environment. I graduated from Loyola Marymount University in 2002 with a Bachelor of Arts degree. I earned my Certified Financial Planner designation in 2019 and completed a Master’s Degree in Accounting and Financial Management from Keller Graduate School in 2022.

As an immigrant from Ecuador, I believe in staying connected to my roots as well as paying forward the many blessings I have received since coming to this country. I am dedicated to serving the community and serve as a board member in several philanthropic organizations:

  • Latino Advisory Council at CHOC Children’s Foundation where we focus on WoW (Wellness on Wheels); a pioneering initiative that brings vital healthcare services, resources, education, and support directly to communities.
  • Vice President at the Delhi Center in Santa Ana, with a mission to empower local families through health, financial literacy, and education programs.
  • Active member of WIN (Women Inspire Network); a community of entrepreneurial women dedicated to support and empowerment. Together we strive to uplift and inspire each other as we navigate the challenges and opportunities of entrepreneurship.
  • Wing for Widows; I provide pro bono financial planning.

 In my leisure time, you will find me enjoying my sons’ soccer matches, spending time with family and friends, traveling, cooking, and dancing. I reside in sunny Corona with my two sons Diego and David, and my parents.
