MARY BETH MCLEAN, SENIOR ADVISOR, CFP®, MBA
Mary Beth’s financial services career began in 2004. She loves what she does and thinks of herself as a financial caregiver. In fact, she considered a career in nursing, but realized she did not have the “patience” (pun intended!) for it. She devotes much of her current practice working with women, often in transition, to take control of their financial matters. The most satisfying part of this profession is to watch Private Vista’s clients become empowered. She helps her clients conceive their future, relieve their fears and achieve their dreams.
