I’m excited to welcome Mary Oransky, CFP® to Laminar Wealth!
Mary was born and raised in St. Louis, and after graduating from Cor Jesu Academy, she headed out to California to attend Santa Clara University. Not only did she earn a degree in biochemistry while at Santa Clara, but she also met her husband (me). After several years of working in the San Francisco Bay Area, we decided to move to Chicago to be closer to family. This was also when I launched Laminar Wealth. As I dedicated myself to my new business, fortunately, Mary also found herself drawn to conversations about financial planning, rather than nagging me for talking about work all the time. While continuing to work in sales, Mary began taking financial planning courses through Northwestern University’s School of Professional Studies. After just a year in Chicago, we decided to move to Mary’s hometown, and this seemed like a natural time for her to change careers. Upon our move, Mary worked at a well-respected, independent advisory firm where she gained valuable experience assisting clients in all aspects of their financial lives. During that time, she also earned her Certified Financial Planner designation. Mary is excited to now be working with Laminar Wealth, where she can continue to help people lead richer lives. When she’s not working, you’ll find Mary playing with our 10 month old daughter Ellie, walking our golden retriever Hana, snuggling our two cats Sassafras and Lily, or having a glass of wine and a philosophical discussion about financial planning with me (yes, we really are that nerdy)!
Welcome aboard, Mary!
