In March of 2021, Annette made the decision to take her wealth management business independent with Osaic Wealth, Inc. (formerly Woodbury Financial). This transition provided her with more opportunities to serve her wealth management clients at a higher level of service, independence and flexibility. The creation of Compass Wealth Solutions allowed her team to focus on future growth and higher efficiencies for their clients. They have a diverse group of clients that include young professionals, midlife achievers, retirees and business owners. Planning, creating and investing for clients with a clearly defined path is what brings great pleasure to Annette and her team. Seeing clients live life to the fullest with a greater financial peace of mind is their ultimate goal. Annette is also excited to be serving a 2-year term on the Osaic National Advisory Board beginning in 2024.
She knows the importance of giving back to her community as well by volunteering her time. She is the current President of the Portland Rotary Club and serves on the Golf Brook Estates Community Association board. She is a ministry partner and a children’s ministry volunteer at the Rock Church. She has been active in various organizations in the Portland area. These include the Altrusa Club, Arts Place, IU Jay Hospital Foundation, Jay County Chamber of Commerce, Jay County Humane Society and Jay-Randolph Developmental Services, Inc.
When not serving clients or volunteering her time, she enjoys practicing yoga, traveling and spending time with family and friends, exploring the best gluten-free food items and restaurants, attending concerts and art events and playing in a women’s card club throughout the year.
