About Us

Our Philosophy

Athena Legacy Solutions helps clients who are facing a change in their financial situation navigate their way through it. Most financial advisory firms either concentrate on products or do planning that is simply a projection of where you are today. As long as nothing big changes, that kind of planning is fine. But a significant change takes some special skills.

Our unique “Life Vision” process will help you envision the new life you want to create, determine what resources are necessary and how best to organize them, and help you navigate your way to the future you want to achieve.

Whether it be leaving your job unexpectedly or earlier than you had originally thought, changing careers, going through a divorce, losing a spouse, or any other significant life event that affects your finances, our life vision process will help you feel more confident, less overwhelmed, and better prepared to make the decisions to get you through it.

Change can be scary. We look forward to making it easier, maybe even exciting.


Your “Life Vision” and aspirations are unique and achieving them requires continued attention and care.

Athena, the Greek Goddess of Wisdom, was known as a strategist and often called upon for her mediation skills. Athena was credited with several inventions, including the art of weaving. In order to achieve your “Life Vision”, many different aspects of your life must be woven together to get a clear picture. Weaving your current situation, the dreams and aspirations of you and your family together, help to form a strategic plan for attaining your goals. Successful implementation will enable the achievement of your personal goals.

The Athena Tetradrachm coin (pronounced te-truh-drak-muh) was the first widely used international coin and possibly the most influential of coins. First minted in Athens around 525 BC, the coin remained unchanged for half of a millennium because of its reliability and exchangeability. Printed on one side with the likeness of the Goddess Athena and on the other, the ever alert owl that is the goddess’ symbol. The owl represented wisdom, strength, oversight and the ability to strategize and weave. The ancient Greeks placed the owl on their currency to watch over and protect the country’s finances.
