I’ve been called the human Prozac of wealth management! I literally take the worry and anxiety out of managing your finances.

Hello, I’m Stacy Francis, President of Francis Financial, Inc., an independent, fee-only, financial planning firm that helps individuals just like you achieve financial freedom.

My background in finance began with my education at New York University Center for Finance, Law and Taxation. I successfully completed CFP® education requirements and CFP® certification exam. I graduated CUM LAUDE from Middlebury College with a B.A. in International Economics and French. I was formerly employed as Director of Investment Relations at Robinson, Lerer & Montgomery. I was an investment banking analyst at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Securities Corp. specializing in financial services.

As a nationally recognized expert in finance, I have appeared on The Today Show, CNBC, Fine Living and am frequently quoted in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Barron’s, CNN, The Daily News, Dow Jones, Money Magazine, MSN, Newsday, and many others.

I am also the Founder of Savvy Ladies®, a 15,000+ strong non-profit organization that empowers women to take control of their finances and achieve a more rich and rewarding life.

I am committed to empowering my clients to discover what’s important to them and in doing so I get to see their dreams come true. One of the most important things I do for you is I do NOT sell products such as insurance, nor do I accept commissions or compensation from any other source. This means you will receive unbiased advice concerning your financial decisions at all times. I’m here to ensure you clearly understand where you are, help you determine where you want to go and then I show you how to get there and I’m here every step of the way.


I speak over 40 times a year to both national and international audiences about important money issues with an emphasis on money smarts for women. One of the most important qualities to my presentation is my message resonates with a diverse audience, young and old, educated and uneducated, all races, money smart and not so money smart.

The second thing is my message is simple and easy to understand. In a poised, energetic and generous style, I use easy to understand language that doesn’t require a degree in Finance to comprehend. I share a wealth of information and I walk the audience through exercises immediately introducing them to tools for taking charge of managing their finances in a knowledgeable and empowered fashion.

The message I deliver is fresh, it’s timely and it’s one that is singled out time and again by the press. I have appeared on The Today Show, CNBC, Fine Living and am frequently quoted in publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Business Week, Barron’s, CNN, The Daily News, Dow Jones, Money Magazine, MSN, Newsday, and many others.

What makes my presentation unique is my holistic approach to wealth management. There is more to a person’s finances than a person’s bank account. I teach my audience to explore their values and to make decisions and to build dreams based on what’s important to them…to their values. Planning financial wealth based on personal values creates lasting rewards rather than mere monetary gain. We cover topics such as goal setting, budgeting, debt, spending, savings, investments, retirement and much, much more.

Finally, I share information and education on the financial tools to use along the way based on my continuing education and professional expertise.
