I know that to give my client’s the very best service requires a solid team behind me. To that end, my team at Craig Wealth Advisors is focused on giving the highest level of customer service. Please stop in our office in beautiful Alden Michigan.
I joined Craig Wealth Advisors in 2013 because I
respect the team's comprehensive approach to financial planning and client
service. I appreciate Debbie’s personalized,
caring approach to client service coupled with the highest degree of integrity
and extensive industry knowledge and experience.
Similar to Debbie, I grew up in a family business which
taught me that:
- Exceptional customer service must begin with
trust and personal attention.
- Financial literacy and proper financial planning
both in your business and personal life are important elements to success.
At Craig Wealth Advisors, I combine my
experience in financial services and marketing to help develop, deliver,
implement and service investment and financial plans for our clients. In my role as Office Manager
, I oversee:
- account maintenance

- compliance requirements
I strive to understand the complexities and unique needs of
our clients and am dedicated to providing them with personalized service every

My other very important job is being the mom to three
fabulous, caring, compassionate boys; two are in college (Central Michigan
University and Michigan State University) and one is at home keeping mom busy with sports and school
activities! Outside of work, Barbara enjoys reading, cooking, traveling, boating, running and spending time with her three boys. Originally from Rochester New York, she now calls Traverse City Michigan her home but thoroughly enjoys working in Alden right on the shores of beautiful Torch Lake.
Please contact me if you have any questions
about our services at Craig Wealth Advisors.
Having grown up in a family business I have heart for small business owners and after working in the corporate world at the beginning of my career, I decided to follow my passion and entered the financial services industries in 2000. And I have not looked back as I thoroughly enjoy working with business owners, professionals and retirees to create their financially independent futures.
At Craig Wealth Advisors part of our mission is to develop trusted relationships with our clients. To that end, it is important to me that you understand more about me so I have shared my story here. I also encourage you to learn more about credentials by visiting my profile on BrokerCheck. BrokerCheck provides
information on the professional background, business practices, and conduct of
FINRA member firms and their associates.
In addition to work, I am active in the Downtown Alden Business Association and have served as Treasurer. I am a board member on the Forest Area Federal CUSO (Credit Union Service Organization) and Three Lake Association. In the past, I have sat on the board of a variety of non-profit organizations helping them with their fundraising efforts. I have also brought my real life experience to the local high school as a speaker in the Business Finance class. When not working and volunteering I enjoy boating (particularly on the clear blue waters of Torch Lake), reading and taking photographs.
