Melissa Chastain Harris, Director of Operations

Karen Jessey, ChFC, CLU, RICP, CExP

“Learning, exploring different ideas and concepts, and helping others are driving forces in my life. Starting in the financial world as a young mother and now, 30+ years later, I realize that being part of team who changes lives through their process and their presence is a powerful motivator to get up every day.  

I joined Karen over 27 years ago not knowing how great this journey would be and never imagining that I would witness the difference financial planning can make in someone’s life. I am humbled and blessed to be a part of such a fantastic group of individuals who challenge me to be better in every way.”
