She began her work in financial planning in 2008 and believes that financial planning is where math and statistics come to life, and that together they hold the keys to unlocking a life well lived. Jessie is honored and humbled to walk alongside her clients through some of their most significant, scary, and complex life challenges and changes and to make a real, positive impact on individual lives through her work. She wants her clients to feel comfortable with their finances, in control of their future, and clearly focused on the possibilities of what they can do with their money. When Jessie is not working, she can be found on the side of the mountain with her two fearless children (who are better skiers than she is), hiking or biking with their dog, or enjoying a family movie night.

About Scarborough Capital Management

Scarborough Capital Management was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to high quality financial advice.


In the late 1980’s, many financial firms were focused on serving the wealthy. Scarborough set out to provide something different. We wanted to offer a service that was practical for everyone, not just a small percentage of the population. So we introduced 401(k), 403(b) and Thrift Savings Plan management services to American workers in the heartland.

Soon after, we broadened our scope to offer comprehensive financial planning, so we could help clients simplify their entire financial lives.


Our evolution didn’t stop there. Several years later, we saw that our clients were busy and often didn’t have time to drive to our offices for meetings. So we were one of the first firms to offer “virtual” advisory services. This allowed us to begin serving people from coast to coast.


Fast forward to the present day…while we’ve expanded, we’ve remained a close-knit team of professional advisors with a lot of shared history. Everyone on our team shares a passion for providing practical advice so you have the best chance of reaching your goals.


Most importantly, we have adhered to our founding beliefs:

 

  • Financial advice must be practical. We act more like a financial coach instead of old-fashioned “stock broker”. There’s nothing we love more than helping you map out all of your financial goals….then helping you work toward them one by one!
  • Getting advice must be convenient. You’re busy, so we interact with you whichever way you prefer: in person, or by email, phone and online conference.

 

Thirty years later, we now oversee more than $1 billion in assets. We’re incredibly honored to serve as a trusted partner for so many individuals and families.

About Harbor Investment Advisory

I take a client-first approach focused on helping my clients navigate through the complex and emotional financial decisions that surround their lives. I concentrate on doing three things for my clients and ask one in return. I help them: - Simplify their financial lives - Generate the necessary returns and income to sustain the lifestyle they desire now and in retirement - Build a legacy for the ones they love and the things they care about. What I ask in return: should my clients have a question on anything financial, I expect to be the first phone call.
