Mantra to Live By:
"What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us." (attributed to Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Ms. Surty's varied and extensive expertise ranges from finance, budgeting, and foreclosure prevention counseling, to financial capability counseling. Her various life experiences ignited a passion to help individuals, couples, and families struggling with ADHD and other mental health challenges improve crucial aspects of their lives, including optimizing their ability to meet both holistic and financial goals. Ms. Surty has supported family and friends with mental health struggles, and is especially inspired by today’s young people: "Many in that group believe there is nothing to be ashamed of, and this inspires me to further the cause of destigmatizing ADHD. I hope to help those with ADHD and their families take more control and gain a better understanding of how aspects of their lives can be improved."
