Laura Slawski, CFP®

Wealth Planner

Laura Slawski Bio Headshot
“I believe in having savings set aside for an emergency so that when it does happen, you can focus on getting through the emergency emotionally and not have the extra financial worry.”


Laura Slawski wanted to be either a singer or a neuropsychologist. Fascinated by the way our brains function, she wanted to study how this impacts our personalities.

She openly admits, “I was not a very good singer and that dream died….” But that doesn’t mean she can’t ham it up on occasion!

Luckily for her clients, Laura found her way to being a (singing, crafting) financial advisor.

“I always knew that being a financial advisor was a job. My mom was a pension and trust administrator, and a neighbor was a trust advisor. Knowing this, I decided to become an advisor.” This knowledge and an interest is in helping people understand what goes on with their money and “How it all works” is a personal driver for Laura.

Laura’s retirement dream is the quintessential cottage life. “I want to feel secure and be able to hang out with my family and friends. I’d love to live near them and enjoy life by reading books from the local library and being creative."

Giving back to the community is something Laura finds important. She works with the United Way’s ASSET program to increase financial literacy. The program is rooted in the belief everyone should know what options they have and what opportunities are available. A primary goal of Asset is for each person to reach $200 to $1000 in savings within the first six months. This means we they encounter an emergency they can focus on what is going on and not the financial ramifications.
