This week we welcomed Robin Wahby, Founder of Wahby Financial Group. 
Her personal experience with a brother who is developmentally disabled and is a quadriplegic helped her see the need for planning for each part of the aging process. Ms. Wahby gave quite an interesting talk on protecting  assets
retirement the difference between  the pre-tax and after-tax components of one's asset mix, and how the amounts should be readjusted over time.
