    A Client-Centered Approach ~ It's really all about you!™

    Theresa M. Rosen, CFP® (CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER), CLTC® (Professional Certified in Long-Term Care)

    Retirement Income Planning Specialist

    In 1986 shortly after graduating from Northeastern University in Boston, MA, Theresa attended a job fair for recent college grads at the Copley Plaza Hotel. Being open to a variety of career possibilities, she was particularly intrigued by the presentation of a company that helped employees of various public school systems nationwide. This company helped them learn how to save for retirement by utilizing 403(b) plans. Theresa did not know what a 403(b) plan was at that time, and turned to her friend and said: “I don’t know what a 403(b) plan is, but I really like the idea of helping teachers, janitors, principals, and public school employees save money for their futures!”

    Theresa made a beeline for that table! The rest is history!

    From that point on, Theresa grew her client base by educating, and helping employees in the Boston Public Schools, Waltham Public Schools, Sudbury Public Schools, Framingham Public Schools, and Framingham State University. 

    In addition, to helping her clients with this retirement vehicle, Theresa also helps her clients all around the country with their comprehensive financial planning needs and goals. Theresa truly loves the relationships she shares with her friends/clients, helping them live the lives they wish to live without worrying about money.
