 Goodbye Mollie
If you've called or visited our office over the past few years, you've likely interacted with Mollie Flynn, our former Office Coordinator. Mollie has decided to relocate to Raleigh, NC in the coming months to be closer to family. 

A note from Mollie:

Choosing to move on from Saratoga Financial Services was an extremely difficult decision to make. Though I'm looking forward to starting an exciting new chapter of my life closer to family, I cannot express my gratitude enough for the wonderful clients and counterparts I've had the opportunity to work with the past seven years. You will all be missed - and if you ever find yourself in NC, please reach out and say hello!
