"A love of numbers has been with me since I was a teenager. In high school, my dad actually found an envelope of cash hidden in my room and uncovered that I wasn't spending my allowance (sorry, dad). I was saving it! Along with the money, he found a note where I had calculated exactly how much I needed to save for my dream car, a BMW (admittedly, I still have a thing for cars!)

As I began my career and started to help companies grow their wealth, I noticed all my friends coming to me for financial advice. I become so consumed with helping them accomplish their financial goals that my calling quickly became clear: to see those I care about accomplish their dreams by implementing financial strategies that work. And from there, I launched Townsend Financial. 

I’ve recently moved back to sunny Scottsdale, Arizona and I’m so excited to have returned! I'm on a mission to empower women to gain a future life of financial freedom. Ready to kick your finances into gear? Great, let’s get started!"
