"I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately..."

- Henry David Thoreau, Walden 

The words of Thoreau changed the course of my life. The concept of living deliberately, simply, thoughtfully and with a purpose, has inspired and informed many of my most important decisions.

My interpretation of these words have led me to leave the corporate world to join an advisory practice in 2013, branch off on my own in 2020, decide to being the first advisor in the greater Columbus, Ohio area to obtain the Chartered SRI Counselor™ designation, and most recently launch a fee-only RIA in the fall of 2022.  

Helping my clients discover the true meaning of wealth is what gets me out of bed in the morning, but my purpose in life is my family. I've been blessed to have spent the past 16 years with my wife Jess, a local photographer, raising our four amazing children Clara, Emma, Jack and Johnny.

Staying active is crucial to my sense of balance, so I can often be found at the local Crossfit gym, running or hiking a trail, mountain or road biking, golfing, camping, or simply working on our property, as there’s always something to be done. 

Meredith Carrington
Client Service Specialist

As a former Army Officer and Civil Engineer turned stay-at-home Mom, I really enjoy caring for people, focusing on the details, and seeing a project through to completion.  


My husband, Dwayne, and I have spent the past 18 years together striving for a balance between “seize the day” and “simplify.”  We constantly try new things, craft new experiences, and then make time to assess. We are grateful to have 5 wonderful girls (Caitlin, Paige, Nora, Sadie, and Maggie) who provide ample opportunity for us to challenge our assumptions about life and reevaluate what we hold as truth.   


In my free time I love to spend active time outside with my family.  I enjoy hiking, running, bicycling, skiing, gardening, and camping.  I’m also passionate about good food and find solace working in my garden with my friendly chickens foraging close by.
