    Join us for a special two-part financial planning series with Molly Townsend, a Certified Financial Planner™ at UBS, specifically designed to help women learn how to take control of their financial futures and navigate turbulent economic times. This is exclusive to WMG members, and you can sign up to attend either or both sessions on July 14th and July 28th. 

    During these virtual sessions, we will cover:

    • Why women must break the cycle of financial abdication
    • Insights from women on obstacles they've faced taking control of their wealth
    • How to start the conversation around your finances and your future

    Molly Townsend is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ with the Zelniker Dorfman Group at UBS. She began her financial services career in 2008 in her hometown of Chicago before moving to NYC in 2015 to join the Zelniker Dorfman Group. Leading the team’s financial planning process, Molly works closely with a broad range of multigenerational clients to gain an understanding of their priorities and help them articulate their goals. Analyzing clients' retirement, education, tax, philanthropy and wealth transfer opportunities, she prides herself on her ability to connect individually with clients and talk about the things that matter most to them. 

    Molly manages the team's 401(k) plan practice, and specializes in insurance, annuities, Social Security, pension income and 529 plans. On any day, she may discuss the risks of a highly concentrated position with an executive, help a widowed client navigate Social Security and survivor benefits, or work with a family to explore lending options for a vacation home. With all the ways her clients turn to her for advice and guidance, Molly prides herself on helping them live their lives to the fullest.

    Jill's theme is: Bourbon Night - BYOB!

    A message from Jill: In ordinary times, I would host a Bourbon night with a tasting of several spirits and a discussion of the merits of each, followed by some tasty supper - maybe Bourbon sloppy joes with cheddar cheese and pickled onions. But we will make do with a virtual meet up. So IF you are a Bourbon fan, have a favorite bottle or cocktail on hand and share your thoughts and enthusiasm with us. Why is it your go to choice? What brought you to Bourbon? What recipes have you tried (if any) that work with this spirit? If you are NOT a Bourbon fan, join in anyway! Any drink will do. Obviously we will move on to the topics of the day: how we are all surviving; what we have learned from this pandemic; best reading (a most subjective question) for this period; and the most binge worthy TV we have each discovered. And anything else you want to discuss! See you later in the summer. Cheers!
