As head of the firm’s financial planning efforts, Madeline is directly responsible for the design and implementation of the firm’s wealth management experience.  A passionate professional who takes great pride in her work, Madeline has an uncanny ability to take complex concepts and relate them to clients in a digestible format fostering further trust and engagement.  In addition to helping clients enact systematic discipline to their financial lives, she heads the firm’s Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) investment committee.
 Prior to joining Breakwater, Madeline worked for a boutique investment adviser in Boulder Colorado after having spent the prior six years with Fidelity Investments in various roles. At the Boston based financial behemoth, she helped individuals and families with the various aspects of their financial lives, from planning for retirement to devising the proper investment strategies, all the while plowing through the rigorous curriculum to earn Chartered Financial Counselor (ChFc®),  CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) and Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®) designations.   Her quest for knowledge seemingly knows no bounds as she is presently wrapping up the CDFA course load which will help her serve clients navigating a challenging period in their financial journey.  
 Constantly on the go, she is happiest when exploring new places with her husband Derek.  Depending on the season, they are most likely hiking, cross country skiing, rafting, or traveling across the globe though they will also tell you a relaxing weekend with their dog Twyla can be pretty special too. While she calls Colorado home, she spends a fair amount of time in the Garden State visiting her family.
