Amber Seale, CFP®, CPA®, CLU®, CDFA® Managing Director

Amber has been in the financial services industry for over 25 years. She began her career at Ernst & Young, auditing some of the largest companies in the world. In 2001, she channeled her CPA background and inner spreadsheet to help families plan for their financial future. She enjoys serving Women, Executives, Business Owners, and High Net Worth families who appreciate her high-touch personal approach. She attended the Barron's Top Women's Advisors Summit and her efforts were recognized in 2023 by Forbes “Best-in-State Wealth Advisors”# and in 2023 Forbes “America's Top Women Wealth Advisors Best-In-State.”^

Personally, Amber enjoys spending time with her three daughters and does her best to find shoes that everyone likes! When she's not with the girls she enjoys pilates and on rare occasions, a weekend nap. With a passion to learn and a love of people, she and her husband formed Seale Wealth Management. Both met and graduated from the University of Texas in Austin. She graduated summa cum laude with both a Bachelor of Business and Masters in Professional Accounting.

Amber has served in many roles at Highland Park United Methodist Church and was on the host committee for Dallas Children’s Advocacy Center and Clayton Dabney’s Foundation (benefiting kids with cancer). She loves participating in the National Charity League with her girls. Amber was asked to be a panel speaker for Women Doing Well, an organization promoting philanthropic giving and is regularly invited to speak at National Raymond James conferences. She has been awarded a seat on both the firm’s Technology and Executive Councils, which meet with Raymond James top management team quarterly. Amber has a heart for teaching women and making complex financial terms easy to understand. “It’s been a joy to be invited to teach Basics on Investments at HPISD and in the community over the last 25 years. I love seeing others’ eyes light up when they understand a topic they never enjoyed," Seale says.
