Tracey Rogers

About me:

Based in Charlotte, North Carolina, I am married and have three girls - two in college (Alabama and UNC-Chapel Hill) and one in high school - and a beloved dog named Biscuit. I grew up outside Philadelphia and attended college at Saint Joseph’s University.

My passions extend beyond my family and into various hobbies that keep me energized and inspired. I love reading, holistic medicine, swimming and biking, travel, and baking.

As a graduate of the Landmark Forum, I've cultivated a deep understanding of personal development and effective communication, which are cornerstones of my professional philosphy. I believe every business is unique and has the potential to become whatever it aspires to be in this world. If you started your company with a goal in mind you embarked on a significant journey. Where are you today and where do you want to go? Do you have the right team to help you get there? I don’t believe in one size fits all approach and am intentional about offering personalized insights to everyone I serve. My passion is progress and advising others so they reach their goals. This ensures that my clients make informed decisions that align with their individual values and aspirations. Finance is the building block to any business - a multi-faceted aspect of life, viewed differently by everyone, influencing decisions and trust in unique ways. 

Said best by one of my longest standing clients “Thank you for taking care of my money as if it were your own”.
