Marley Smith

Planning Associate

What sparked your interest in financial planning? What fuels you every day in your work?

I was first exposed to the concept of financial planning when I was a teen, seeing my mother benefit from the financial support and financial guidance of others. Financial planning seemed like such a rewarding opportunity to help guide people with something so personal and impactful throughout their life’s changing seasons. It is a great model for what it means to help shoulder another’s burdens and I knew it was the career I wanted to pursue and what fuels me to this day

What’s the one thing people say you’re best at?

Listening. I endeavor to be quick to listen and slow to speak.

When you retire you’re going to…?

Hopefully keep moving and exploring the wonderful creation we are surrounded by in the outdoors. I want my days to be spent running, biking, fishing, hiking, and in fellowship with others.

Where did you grow up? Where do you live now?
I am from the rural farmlands outside of Reading, Pennsylvania. I moved back home after college because the cost of living at home can’t be beat!
