Take 10 Member Spotlight:  Gwen Dadoly

What is your name?  Gwen Dadoly

What's your current job?  Wealth Management Advisor for TIAA

What do you love most about it? I love learning what it takes to advise clients based on an in-depth understanding of their financial needs, wants, hopes and dreams. I diagnose and celebrate individuality. I love the fact that I can truly make a difference in my clients’ lives by simplifying their financial lives and help them identify and achieve their visions of their financial future.

How long have you been a member of Cape Space and what do you like most about it thus far?  I have been a member of Cape Space since August of 2016.  What I like most about CapeSpace is the team of Robbin, Anna, Jeffrey & Katelyn!

When not working, what do you like to do?  I love to run, bike, ski, play tennis and golf.  I also love spending time being a cheerleader at all of our daughters’ sporting events. 

Guilty Pleasure: What can you not live without? Summer wouldn’t be complete without an ice cream cone (or two) of Ben & Jerry’s Phish food ice cream. 

Favorite Movie? Titanic.  People on a sinking ship are presented with an ultimate test to determine what they are really made of-- 

Favorite Book? Moby Dick.  Perhaps growing up in New Bedford has given me a great appreciation of Yankee Whaling and this book for me stands as a historical reference to that era.

Favorite TV Show? Jim Cramer’s Mad Money. Boo-yah!

What is one thing that you would like people to know about you? I always focus on getting better, rather than being good at something. I have found that embracing the fact that I can change has allowed me to make better choices and reach my fullest potential.  It’s also helped me take difficulty in stride and appreciate the journey just as much as the destination.

Affinity Partner Spotlight:  
Beacon Financial Planning of Cape Cod

Michaela Herlihy is passionate about helping her clients evaluate their needs and establish sound financial solutions to help them realize their dreams.  In March 2016, Michaela was featured in the Wall Street Journal with an article on financial basics for new business owners.   

“There’s a great sense of satisfaction when clients share their confidence in the plan we have developed together, noting with their financial house in order they can focus on that which brings them most joy – their business, family, golf, or whatever it may be.”

Equally important to Michaela is being connected with her community. You may recognize her from her work on the Board of Directors of Calmer Choice and the Finance Committee of WE CAN.  Michaela is a graduate and Board Member of the Community Leadership Institute of Cape Cod.  In 2014 Michaela was recognized by Cape and Plymouth Magazine as one of the Top 40 Professionals under the age of 40. 

When she is not working with clients and engaging in volunteer activities, Michaela enjoys cooking for friends and family, practicing yoga, and exploring the Cape’s gorgeous beaches and trails.

At Beacon Financial Planning of Cape Cod, Inc we take a partnership approach to help you achieve long-term financial security.  We are a local, FEE-ONLY, independent advisory firm whom hold a high fiduciary standard. We specialize in comprehensive financial planning and investment solutions. We’ve learned that the best financial plans stem from a clear understanding of your personal situation and long term goals.  Simply put, we tailor your plan to manage all facets of your financial life so you can focus on that which is most important to you.  We work with clients whom have a minimum of $100K of investable assets.
