“When our clients reach their full potential, I know we’ve reached ours.”

With a background in economics and law, Brandy blends her expertise in both worlds to lay out the path our clients need to achieve their dreams, while also ensuring that path is solid. Brandy helps clients understand how the decisions they make today affect their lives in years to come. She brings her positivity and insight to her role, making every day an opportunity to create fulfilling futures for the individuals and families who are relying on the Matthias team. Brandy’s favorite part of her job is helping families reach their full potential – and when they have, she knows she has fulfilled hers, too.

Strategically, Brandy allows our team to provide clients services beyond those of a typical investment advisory firms by navigating the compliance complexities.
