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.  

Michelle is a 1995 graduate from the University of Louisville in Kentucky,receiving Magna Cum Laude accolades. She began her career in financial planning in 1998. She is also a member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA), and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), an exclusive membership of fee-only financial planners.

About Wealthminder

Wealthminder was created for one simple reason: To help people get the financial assistance they need to achieve their long-term financial goals.

Wealthminder is a database of every Investment Advisor Representative in the country. We work hard to collect and provide you the information you need to find a financial advisor who’s right for you.

If you are looking for a specific financial advisor and you can’t find them on Wealthminder, it’s likely that they are either exclusively a broker or are unlicensed - please contact us and we’ll try to help!

Finding a Financial Advisor through Wealthminder

Historically finding and hiring a financial advisor was hard. Wealthminder was built to make the process much easier.

The best way to use Wealthminder is to take advantage of our free proposal system. All you have to do is take a few minutes of your time to describe your situation and the assistance you are looking for.

Wealthminder then sends your request to our network of prescreened financial advisors. If a financial advisor is interested in your business, they will submit a proposal to you.

You review the proposals you receive and decide if you’d like to have a follow-up call with one or more of the financial advisors.

Throughout the process, you maintain control. We only share your contact information with a financial advisor once you ask for an introduction.
