MARIANNA GOLDENBERG, CDFA | FINANCIAL ADVISOR & FOUNDer & CEO - CURO Wealth Management

What do you love most about what you do?

I truly love helping people and being an advocate for their financial life. There’s a lot more to financial advising than meets the eye. When it comes to my clients, I take care of all aspects of their finances, from understanding where they are now to creating long-term plans and goals. I love being a guide, while at the same time empowering them to make important decisions for their financial future.

What led you to where you are today?

Coming to the United States from Moldova when I was 18, I had to start from scratch and learn my own way. This led me to reaching for the stars and earning my degrees in mathematics and finance from The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. What got me started in my career was an undeniable determination, viewing the challenges I faced as motivation for success in my work. My parents taught me three life lessons that I bring full circle to my clients: family comes first, be independent, and help others. I knew firsthand what it was like to start with nothing, study hard, work hard, and raise two young children with a full time job. The next step was a natural progression; opening my own firm, where my passion for helping people help themselves could be directly realized.

What are you passionate about outside of the office?

I’m passionate about life! I love to travel, including poring over every travel blog I can find and even sharing great travel finds with my clients. My two daughters are my pride and joy and I love watching them grow into young women and taking on the world in their own way. I especially love teaching and hope to one day create a hands-on financial literacy program about budgets, saving, etc., to teach children how to be financially independent and successful, paying it forward, literally.


DANIELLE FINNERTY | WEALTH MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATE

What do you love most about what you do?

I truly enjoy the inherent aspects of my work - getting to know clients and researching and preparing investment opportunities for them on an ongoing basis. I didn’t know it in advance, but now I see how much our work helps people, especially by giving them confidence in understanding their finances. Her biggest takeaway from this decision has been to have a much more fulfilling career where she can see the direct impact of her work, saying, “I didn’t know it in advance, but now I see how much our work does help people, especially minimizing the knowledge gap.” Upon meeting Marianna for the first time, I resonated with her values and Danielle felt a bond - wkinship, with ourtheir similar work ethic, wanting to make a difference, and seeing how deeply sheMarianna cares about her clientele.

 

What led you to where you are today?

After an initial direction in the corporate business world, my biggest takeaway was to have a much more fulfilling career. I had a desire to work more closely with people, so I decided to pursue a career in financial services, which ultimately led me to CURO Wealth Management. From the moment I arrived, I began experiencing the direct impact of my work. Having Marianna not only as an employer, but also a mentor has been an integral/significant/important aspect of my growth here. At Curo, what you put into it is what you get out of it. It’s like a big circle and we’re all growing together as a company, working hard, and taking care of our clients, which is our top and natural priority.

Danielle has Series 7 (General Securities Representative) and 66 (Uniform Combined State Law) registrations through Commonwealth Financial Network.

What are you passionate about outside the office?

Being a Philly dweller, there are lots of outlets for my interests. In her spare time, Danielle isI’m excited  happy to be getting back into running half marathons, I. As a Philly dweller, she loves indie film and I’mm, is passionate about different cuisines and loves exploring new restaurants both near and far.

SAMANTHA LOGUE I ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT

What do you love most about what you do?

I really like working with our team and seeing the direct impact their work can have on people’s lives. It is very fulfilling to be close to the results and contribute to the ongoing efforts of our commitment to client service that goes the extra mile.

What led you to where you are today?

I have a background in customer service, and after moving back to the area from Nashville, I was looking for something different than the wholesaler and manufacturing markets. Getting involved in the financial field has been a great fit as it resonates more with my business degree.

What are you passionate about outside the office?

I do a lot of volunteer work to give back to our community. I’m passionate about animals, and work with animal rescue groups, sometimes even bringing an adorable new pet home! I also volunteer with wounded warriors, including running 5k’s and assisting Camp Hometown Heroes, a support group for kids who have lost a parent in active duty military. My husband served in the United States Army, so these organizations are close to home and important to my family and me.

LOLA GOLDENBERG  | director of stress management

I’m Lola. I love people; especially ones that give me massages, peanut butter, and let me snooze in the sun. I have a favorite spot, right behind my ears, that I like to get rubbed. When that happens, I make a funny sound, because it feels so good!

I get along with the dogs and people I have met here, including respectful children of all ages. I would rather not spend my time jogging or wrestling with energetic dogs since I’m a really mellow girl.
