As a planner, Michelle believes in a holistic approach to helping clients plan and live their dreams. She feels that the better she can help a client to mesh their life dreams with their finances, the more successful, and fulfilling, their retirement journey will be. Critical to a client's success is the integration of planning to address some of retirees' greatest worries: how to plan for health care and its expenses, long term care issues, events that may occur in retirement. This approach is what she brings to The Retirement Continuum™ courses to help attendees maximize retirement success.
In private practice, Ms. Ash specializes in retirement planning, comprehensive wealth management, planning
issues such as pension valuations and tax issues. When not working with clients, Ms. Ash has conducted
educational courses on retirement planning through the University of North Florida’s LearnJax program since 2007. She has also served as an Adjunct Professor with Florida State College at Jacksonville, teaching courses on various financial matters, and co-hosted the radio show "Financial Feud. She is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, and also holds two advanced designations available only to advisors who have already hold the CFP®
certification - the CASL® designation - Chartered Advisor for Senior Living (CASL®) and the Retirement Income Chartered Professional (RICP) designation from from The American College.
