Brown was widowed at an early age and learned the value of having a solid plan in place firsthand. She is very passionate about making sure clients have a good understanding of how a long-term illness may affect their family and their ability to be financially secure into retirement. Brown believes that properly protecting existing assets against the various risks in retirement is the key to a well-funded retirement and to maximize wealth transfer to the next generation.
Brown raised a son, who at an early age, already has a solid financial plan in place. After the passing of her husband, Brown moved to Huntsville, Ala., where her son had established roots as an aerospace engineer.
