Maggie is a lifelong Lisbon native and CEO of Barnard Financial, an independent financial advisory firm focused on retirement planning. Since founding the firm with her husband five years ago, she has specialized in women’s finance and empowerment. Her team has developed the “Women, Money, Freedom,” presentation to encourage women across socioeconomic, racial, and age groups to own their financial literacy as a way to strengthen every area of their life. She and her team also recognize the importance of the local community and are committed to giving back in any way that they can through sponsorships (they’ve sponsored The Moxie Festival, Boosters, LJAL among others) and volunteering. Maggie loves using her creative energies on the stage in local theater and music ventures, and finding new ways to help others maximize their strengths. She lives in Lisbon Falls with her husband Jeremy, their five children, and their dog Pippi.
