Laurie Nardone, CFP
Laurie began providing financial advice and wealth management services to individuals in 2006. Before starting her business, she spent nearly two decades with several investment companies.
In 2000, she left 20+ years of corporate management to establish Shira Ridge Wealth Management. The name evolved after Laurie’s personal journey in 2005 to Africa to summit Mount Kilimanjaro, as she was struck by the numerous parallels – journeying safely to get to the top of a mountain compared to journeying on your financial path to reach your own personal destination (retirement, financial confidence, legacies, etc.)
She is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and is also an active member within the Financial Planning Association (FPA), and a past President of the San Francisco FPA Chapter. She is also active in, and on the Board of, the League of Women Voters Marin County.
