How this all started

My name is Russ. I’ve been managing wealth for over 25 years and have helped countless women get ready for retirement, care for their families, build wealth—and most importantly, live great lives.

When I was a young man, my mother 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. 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.
