Kathy and Todd were married in 2013 and welcomed their first child, Jon Luke Oswald, on February 25, 2015. They welcomed their second child, Caroline Rose, on November 2, 2016. Both children have been an absolute joy and sometimes make appearances with Kathy in Wilmington when she routinely comes to meet with clients. The Oswalds are active at Clearview Church in Shreveport and in their free time enjoy being outdoors, spending time with family and friends, participating in local events, camping, travel, and good food.
I became an advisor because I wanted to do something where I could make a difference for not only my family, but for many other families as well. After over 15 years in the business, I am still an advisor because I love the planning aspect and the educational part of it. In any given year, the average family will spend more time planning a vacation than they will spend planing their retirement or children’s college education. It’s just not an easy or fun thing to think about. I take a holistic approach to each family’s goals in regards to their finances and incorporate budgeting, risk management, and cash flow into their investment management plan. I specialize in retirement and income planning for pre-retirees and retirees, as well as accumulation and asset protection for high net worth individuals. Since marrying a physician in 2013, I have become acutely aware of some unique needs of this profession and I strive to be the resident expert in financial planning for physicians.
Kathy started her career in 2000 as a Fixed Income Marketing specialist with Edward Jones in St. Louis, MO. After four years of educating new Financial Advisors on fixed-income investing and meeting more than 1,000 retired investors across the country, she decided to begin her own practice in Wilmington, NC. In the fall of 2008 she left Edward Jones and started Legan Wealth Management, LLC, and a year later joined the team at Haines Financial, LLC.
