• Gyles Laney, AAMS™

    Financial Advisor

Gyles believes the financial planning path chose her. She never envisioned herself in this industry, but to her surprise this career has brought her greater fulfilment than she could have ever expected. She enjoys that she can help others and make a lasting and positive impact on people’s lives. Prior to joining Jeter Hrubala Wealth Strategies, Gyles worked with several U.S. and international non-profits and saw the difference money and financial security could make for individuals and their communities. She is particularly proud of her work with the Anza organization in Tanzania. At Anza, Gyles helped provide micro-loans and catalyst support to local businesses that are not able to receive traditional bank financing.

She is passionate about financial literacy for women and young professionals, especially helping them to find their financial footing. Gyles is well-versed on the financial issues facing the younger generation and takes the lead on educating clients and individuals in her network on how to achieve financial success as they navigate their careers.

Gyles believes that successful financial planning requires a holistic approach. This means examining every facet of a person’s life – not just their investments, but also their passions and dreams. She finds joy in helping clients financially support and volunteer for the organizations and initiatives they care about most.

Gyles has served as a financial advisor for more than three years and focuses on financial analysis, building financial plans, as well as handling the marketing, social media, and company events. Gyles has a passion for strategic planning and plays a pivotal role in developing the company’s long-term roadmap. Her approachable nature also makes her the perfect liaison for new team members and interns. She spearheads the company’s robust summer internship program aimed to help introduce the financial planning industry to undergraduate students.

Outside the office, she loves to thrift, complete DIY projects, play tennis and pickleball, and travel.
