Seeing women live great lives (before and after retirement)
is the most important part of what I do.

Based in Atlanta, GA, I'm fortunate to serve women and their families located across the country. I even have a client who is citizen and resident of Japan.
As a financial advisor, much of my work revolves around money and finance, but the ultimate goal of my advice is to help my clients live a wonderful life without regret.

What led me here...

My name is Russ. I’ve been delivering personal financial advice to clients and families for more than 30 years and have helped countless women get ready for retirement, care for their families, protect their wealth—and most importantly, live great lives.

When I was a young man, my Mom went through a divorce.

Despite being a smart and hard-working woman, the divorce led to some significant financial challenges. For example, she was forced to declare personal bankruptcy.

What she needed was someone in her corner to help her navigate financial uncertainty and look out for her best interests.

Unfortunately, I was too young to help her then.

As an adult, I devoted my career to becoming a champion for women like my mother. That’s why I started Wealthcare for Women: to empower you to make financial decisions that enable you to live a great life—without having to worry about money.

A little more about me...

A few things beyond business:

I love music

I love playing it, listening to it, thinking about it…
You name it, I’m into it.

I'm a family man

My family: Elizabeth, Winnie, & Me

My wife Elizabeth, our rescue dog Winnie, and our various foster dogs mean the world to me. We love spending time together in the great outdoors of Atlanta or Lake Oconee.

If there’s a little fishing involved, all the better!

I believe in giving back

Elizabeth and I volunteer with Angels Among Us Pet Rescue.
I’m also proud to serve on the board of trustees for Georgia Eye Bank

I'm proud of my work

I get great satisfaction from my client work, and I was selected as one of Investopedia’s 100 Top Financial Advisors in 2019, 2020, and 2021.
