Antonette Kistler is the executive assistant and office manager. Her role is to support and assist the office staff and make our visitors feel welcome and comfortable.
As executive assistant, Antonette is dedicated to providing superior service, embracing the philosophy of treating others the way you would like to be treated. Having worked more than 20 years in executive administrative roles, seven of those years in the financial services industry, Antonette believes that individual lives are enriched and improved by the guidance and support financial planning can provide to people who work hard to sustain their family and community, while creating a lasting nest egg for future generations.

Even as I child, I can remember discovering how satisfying it was to assist family members and friends' families with projects and activities. With this in mind, one can understand why I find serving and assisting in the role of administration both compelling and rewarding. Furthermore, I've found immeasurable gratification in raising my children and volunteering at church.
My goal is to provide clients with a pleasant experience the minute they come through the door, welcoming them with a warm smile and friendly demeanor. When assisting clients, I am determined to provide a satisfying connection, learning what is important to them while building an ongoing rapport and relationship.
Having worked in supportive roles, serving clients, and raising a family, I have learned some valuable lessons that shaped me into the person I am today. I strive to live life with some basic principles: "Hard work, though difficult, eventually pays off"; "When you get hit by a pitch, dust yourself off and get going”; "Serve lemonade, not lemons.”
