The Lighthouse Team 

Kathy Williams, RFC® , Wealth Manager

President of Advance Financial Lighthouse

Kathy has devoted her career to helping people achieve financial success. She has over 30 years of experience in financial planning and investment management. Education is vital to Kathy. She holds a degree in Organizational Leadership with a minor in Psychology from Southern Nazarene University and continues on her journey to learn.

Kathy's life experiences of growing up poor, going through a difficult divorce, life as a single parent and losing her teenage daughter, shaped her deeply. These challenges made her resilient and determined to inspire and help others who are going through similar situations. She believes most can achieve financial success with the right mindset.
