Heather Locus' professional passion grew out of one of life's painful curveballs. As she worked through her own divorce eight years ago, Ms. Locus discovered how many tricky decisions must be made during that emotionally charged process.

"Divorce often is a series of least-worst choices. You often don't feel like you're picking between two good choices," she said. "We try to help clients be conscience of what they're trying to do for the long-term."

Although Ms. Locus now focuses on divorced clients, she has been helping clients with all kinds of financial decisions for more than 20 years. After a bad experience at a large accounting firm, she realized she wanted to use her financial know-how to help people.

She also has educated audiences about topics such as raising financially smart kids and being a financially smart woman, published a book about divorce, and works with a local nonprofit to help women navigate the divorce process.

"I feel successful when I help someone fix a problem," Ms. Locus said.
