About the Firm
Mary Katherine Descant
Mary brings to the firm a combination of interpersonal and technical skills, drawing on her diverse background in financial services, accounting*, computer programming and insurance. Her goal is to integrate these skills in a way that will help provide our clients the best possible service, which includes not only meeting but anticipating their needs and concerns.

During the next 13 years she obtained extensive professional credentials in customer service, agency administration and office management from the Life Office Management Association, an educational organization within the life insurance industry. She joined her husband's firm in 1999 and received her Registered ParaplannerSM designation in 2007.
