A decade after an unstable economy and its repercussions has left many of us feeling shaky on the financial grounds that we have built. Who do we trust with our money? Is investing wise when the economy seems to hang by a thin rope? The financial crisis that began in 2007 was the worst experienced in nearly 80 years, and with it came an upheaval of corruption cases, fraud and falsified documents. Luckily, during this time of uncertainty a white light appeared. This white light is the physical manifestation of Helane Morrison.

She wears white hats and speaks up for those whose voices are weak.

The last thing on most of our minds is whether to invest in the market. Even those who would like to invest don’t know how to begin or who to go to for help. In a positive turn of event, Morrison’s education and professional background are securing that trust in many investors.
