Helping families realize their financial goals is the most fulfilling thing I do. Because finances can determine your quality of life, it is critically important for me to understand what is most important to you. As we partner with you using an established process, our goal is to help you organize your wealth, build your wealth and protect your wealth, as tax efficiently as possible.

While you and I collaborate on your investment and retirement income strategies, my Branch Office Administrator, Kristen Vayner, will work with you on all administrative matters. She is often your first point of contact in our office and works closely with me to help ensure all our client needs are met in a timely manner.

She and I are not alone, however. Because we take a holistic approach, we welcome the opportunity to work with your attorneys, accountants and other trusted professionals to help ensure you develop a complete, tailored strategy.

We also work with teams of professionals located at our headquarters in St. Louis, MO, who provide our office with advanced technology support and resources to ensure you receive the most current guidance.

When I'm not working, I enjoy reading personal development books and autobiographies, scrapbooking, journaling and spending time with my husband and daughter. Born in Fayetteville and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina has always been home for me.

Kristen enjoys serving our clients and putting your needs first just as much as I do. When she's not working, she enjoys spending time with family and friends. A Northeast Ohio native, she enjoys rock climbing, walking or hiking, arts and crafts, comedy, yoga and all things food.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my webpage today. I truly appreciate your interest in my practice, and I look forward to meeting you.

At your service,
Anastasia T. Council
