Create a Financial Plan That Grows With You

Financial security is something many of us strive to achieve in our lives. It's difficult to achieve this alone. Our goal is to take clients off the "treadmill of life" to ensure they're making progress with their planning goals. Wrong financial decisions can often undermine the best of intentions. Our overall mission is to take care of risks that come with building wealth, a family, a successful lifestyle. We can help identify goals and dreams, develop a plan that addresses these needs, and make progress, not perfection on the path to financial security.

See the links above to learn how we can be a good resource to you.


Meet Nicolette Varan:

Nicolette grew up in Hinsdale, IL and currently resides in the Lincoln Park neighborhood in Chicago.

She enjoys running to the Lakefront, trips to Zoo, beach volleyball at North Avenue, local neighborhood restaurants and spending time with her boyfriend, James. Nicolette attempts to practice French as often as possible, not allowing her double-major to go to waste.

She loves traveling (especially to Mexico), spending time with her grandparents, going to comedy shows in Chicago, attending classic rock concerts and helping people she cares about reach their goals.

Community Involvement:

Nicolette loves giving back and supporting her community. After attending many shows hosted by Waltzing Mechanics NFP over the years at the Greenhouse Theatre, she volunteered to join the Board of Directors in 2015 and was entrusted with the President title in 2017. The mission of the company is to draw attention to the current events in our community. Nicolette takes pride in supporting her networks' various causes and events as often as possible.

Nicolette also volunteers at Sertoma Centre with her grandfather, Joseph Varanauski Sr., one of the most giving people she knows. Keeping up with her college alumni, Nicolette is the Class Editor of her Illinois Wesleyan online newsletter. Nicolette also attends St. Vincent DePaul Parish in Lincoln Park.
