“Women face unique challenges in our lives, a support network can help us identify solutions and provide us with much needed emotional support, I’ve faced personal challenges in my own family and that has played a role in my decision to support women,” Rene Nourse, is founder and CEO of Urban Wealth Management, an all women team of Certified Financial Planners dedicated to ensuring women live the life they desire and deserve.
“Back in early February – before the spike in COVID-19 cases, one of my team members and I began working with a wonderful couple who hired us for financial planning services. At the time, the couple was focused on planning for retirement, creating a savings plan, and expanding their business. After a few months of working with them to create a financial plan, things took a turn for the worse – the wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in early spring, which turned their world upside down. As a result, we wanted to continue providing our assistance to relieve financial stress and offered pro-bono services. Keeping and getting their financial life in gear is a dream that they want and that we are proud and delighted to give,” adds Rene.
