Guest Instructors

Sarah Carlson, Wealth Advisor

Although many people think money can’t “buy” happiness, I know from experience that it certainly can help. With wealth often comes anxiety, especially for those who don’t know the ins and outs of financial planning, investments, and money management.

I have been a financial planner and wealth management specialist for over 25 years, and I work to help people navigate the many complexities money can bring.

A graduate of Yale University and a Certified Financial Planner™, Chartered Life Underwriter®, and Chartered Financial Consultant®, I am passionate about education, viewing it as a lifelong process. My areas of experience include securities, trust, wills, investments, and retirement planning.

Contact Sarah or enroll in our course, A Mindful Approach to the Creation of Wealth.
