      Janae helps our high net worth and ultra-high net worth individuals and families with complex financial planning and investment strategies. At the forefront of her planning strategy, Janae believes that each family is unique, and thus each plan is meticulously crafted based on the goals, hopes and dreams of each client to help them create a lasting legacy. Janae is also passionate about coming alongside women though transitions in their life. Whether it's marriage, divorce, raising children, caring for aging parents, retiring, preparing for longevity, or navigating the loss of a loved one, Janae understands the unique challenges women face. For all her clients, she brings compassion and creativity to develop solutions though a systematic, process driven approach.

      Janae received her BA in Economics from the University of Chicago in 2006 where she was captain of the varsity basketball team. After college, she went on to work at Credit Suisse in Fixed Income Sales in Chicago, working with an institutional client base that included several Fortune 500 companies. She analyzed bonds, proposed trade ideas and executed trades for money managers, insurance companies and hedge funds. Since the average trade size was $15 million per trade, her attention to detail was especially important.  

      After careful thought, she decided to join UBS in Global Wealth Management with a focus in financial planning. Merging her desire to help people with her investment expertise, it has been a natural fit for her. As a lifelong learner, she earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification which is the standard of excellence in financial planning. She has developed and implemented financial plans for business owners, real estate developers, entrepreneurs, executives, investors, families, and individuals. Though Wealth Management is complex, Janae uses her teaching background to deliver information in a way that is understandable.
