WHAT WE OFFERFinancial Planning
To get where you want to go, you’ll need a custom roadmap that’s built strategically around your goals. We take a human-centered approach to financial planning, focusing more on you than your money. In this process, we will help you realign your financial mindsets and habits with your long-term vision, resulting in a more financially secure future.
If you are looking to outsource the day-to-day operations of your business, we are here to help. These related services—including tax preparation and planning, payroll processing, and monthly bookkeeping?—are available exclusively to our financial planning clients. Investment Management
As an investor, you have the ability to effectively “put your money where your mouth is” by investing in social causes you believe in. From environment conservation to improving the gender pay gap to reducing racial inequality, we will customize and manage your portfolio with a carefully planned investment strategy while maintaining the direction and discipline you need to reach your goals. If any of this resonates with you, let's chat. The first meeting is on us. There’s no cost and no pressure, just a conversation to see if we’re a good match.
Financial stability isn’t something you hope for; it’s something you plan for. As a creative working in a volatile industry, having the right financial plan is essential. It can act as a strong anchor in financially uncertain times, but only if the plan is uniquely built for you. At Equalis Financial, we’re here to help.
I earned a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, majoring in Financial Services, from California State University, Northridge.

And in my never-ending pursuit of knowledge, I completed a Master of Science degree in Taxation at Cal State Northridge.
