Haley Gandara: Chief Executive Officer
Haley is a co-owner and office manager of Empowered Financial Management, LLC. She manages all operations, implements processes, content creation, event management, marketing, volunteer/community projects, manages the team, and more! While she most likely isn’t the one to answer the phones or greet you when you walk into the office, she is highly involved with the day-to-day operations and oversees all clients and appointments. If you ever have any questions or need anything, she will gladly assist you in any way that she can. Haley is passionate and entrepreneur-minded. Her main focus is growing the company and implementing efficient processes so we can reach even more people, offer them peace of mind throughout their retirement planning process, and provide an efficient and simple process while doing so.
In everything we do, we aim to make a positive impact on as many people as possible, both through retirement planning and through our profit and time. Her vision is that this company is a generous company, both with our time and financial resources. If we aren’t making a positive impact on people beyond our clients, we aren’t doing our job.
Haley grew up in Madison but she loves the heat and southern culture! She and her husband currently live in Verona with their four “children” – two dogs, Blake and Beamer, and two cats, Oakley and Elise. She also loves to travel and wants to see as much of the world as she can. Her favorite places to visit are Nashville, the Caribbean and Guatemala – but she’s also excited to see Europe and more of the United States! In her free time, she loves boating and going for long walks with their dogs. Madison summers are her absolute favorite! To her, there is nothing better than lake sunsets at the Union and long, summer days with sunshine, leaves on the trees and warm air.
