Meet the Team
Life Planning Partners, Inc.
Carolyn McClanahan, M.D., CFP® began her career as a physician. As her financial life grew more complex, she and her husband sought help in answering some fundamental questions, such as “How much do we really need to retire?” and “What will our future look like?” After months of interviewing numerous financial planners, they found that most were simply interested in managing their portfolio or selling complex financial products, rather than providing the advice and guidance needed to create a great life.
Frustrated by not being able to find a planner who fulfilled their needs, Carolyn enrolled in the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® curriculum at the University of North Florida. Recognizing the similarities between medicine and financial planning, and feeling empowered by helping people plan for their future, Carolyn decided to make a career change. In 2004, she founded Life Planning Partners, Inc. to provide the type of personalized financial life planning services she and her husband originally desired.
