Laird is a health nut – in a smart way. Healthy diet. Healthy activities. And a total dedication to healthy financial futures.

To confirm the first part: Laird makes her own granola (from scratch). Her helper? Her daughter (baking champ in the making). They take that granola along on mountain hikes. (And yes, her husband has learned to “survive” eating very few processed foods.)

To confirm the second part: “Many years ago, my brother and I had to make some unexpected but critical financial decisions. We turned to a long-time family friend—a financial planner—to guide us. It was such a positive, confidence-building, stress-relieving experience that I decided to make it my career.”
