Amber Miller, CFP®

Financial Planner

Twin Cities

I believe that life is about adventures, trust and finding the right people.  It is my goal to be that trusted, right person to help you reach for your dreams, achieve your goals and live life to your fullest potential.  I specialize in working with adventurous, motivated women and young professionals who are socially aware, value education and are looking for a partner to help plan for their future and leave a legacy for the next generation.  I currently serve as the Director of the Financial Planning Association’s Education committee, to ensure that today’s students become tomorrow’s financially astute adults – I love learning from children and inspiring them to plan their own great futures.

“It is good to have an end to journey towards, but it is the journey that matters, in the end.”      -Ursula K LeGuin

I spent the first 10 years of my life working as a designer – primarily graphic design, but also theater set design, interior design and visual art (painting) where I was able to incorporate my meticulous attention to detail with my creative aptitude. Now I’m creative with the human side of money and building relationships with clients.  I relish in finding creative financial solutions and developing detailed plans that help clients live their dreams.

When I’m not at work, I’m usually on the water in my rowing single training for local and national races. I’ve been rowing since college and love being out on the water, pushing my mind and body to its limit. I also enjoy running half-marathons, CrossFit, hiking the Superior Hiking Trail, and the occasional Tough Mudder obstacle courses.  I’ve lived in three countries and six states and am a sucker for anything travel and adventure related.
