About Financial Freedom LLC

Financial Freedom provides Fee-Only Wealth Management Services which includes comprehensive financial planning and investment management services. OUR PRIMARY OBJECTIVE IS TO HELP OUR CLIENTS ACHIEVE THEIR LIFE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES. Unlike many planners, we are Fee-Only Financial Planners. Fee-only planners are compensated solely on the basis of fees paid by their clients and do not accept any commissions or compensation from any other sources. This form of compensation should provide you with a high-level of confidence that you are receiving objective recommendations. Additionally, when working with clients on an on-going basis, we do so utilizing a flat retainer arrangement versus any percentage of assets under management formula. Each year we provide our clients with a Wealth Management Services performance evaluation review. We think that it is important that each client is able to evaluate the overall value that our retainer relationship adds to the achievement of their life goals and objectives. Our business strategy is to maintain a small firm focused on developing in-depth personal relationships with a small number of client families versus a cursory relationship with hundreds of clients. The Osgoods are the firm; they do the analysis and investing; they meet with you wherever you live; you won't be turned over to someone else once you become a client. We are seeking prospective new clients with a minimum of $1 million of investable assets. Check out our website at www.finfree.com for more information. Call us at 610-296-9500 for an initial no-obligation consultation.

My passion for finance comes from a family heritage of teaching and caring for others. Finance is a complex area of life, yet in most states, it is not required in schools. As a financial planner, I have the ability to make a significant impact in the lives of the individuals, couples and families I serve. In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, my husband Jim and my two sons, Christian and Dylan. We love visiting places as a family, and our kids' energy ensures we stay active.

About Janney Montgomery Scott LLC

How I Work With Clients Long-term focus and discipline start with a sound investment strategy. The first meeting is a complimentary consultation. I like to get acquainted with you and your family to discuss your current financial condition and determine your invetment objectives. Once we begin a business relationship, we proceed to gather all of your financial data, which includes current investments, income, assets, insurances and any debts or loans. Upon determining your goals and objectives, we then analyze the information and agree upon a financial plan. Once an investment plan is agreed upon, our team of specialists will work with your own independent tax and legal advisors. Our goal is to add value through a comprehensive planning approach. Regular portfolio reviews will then be scheduled to monitor your investments and rebalance as necessary. We will also discuss any life changes that may have occurred and the opportunities and challenges that they may present. This is what all present and future clients can expect. I welcome the opportunity to work with you as your investment partner.
