Calidris / 'kal·i·dris

A genus of highly migratory birds. These experienced flyers overwinter on the Andean Plateau and breed in the high Arctic, a 15,000 mile roundtrip trek. They demonstrate prudence, tenacity, and commitment to their goal.

Achieving financial independence is a dynamic journey – one filled with headwinds, tailwinds, and obstacles.

At Calidris Financial, we draw inspiration from nature. We help our clients navigate life’s challenges with time tested guidance to remain focused on the goal, just as Calidris has done for millennia.

We help bring order to your financial life, by assisting you in getting your financial house in order at both the “macro” level that includes investments, insurance, your estate, taxes, etc., and also the “micro” level of household cash flow.



We bring insight from the outside to help you avoid emotionally driven decisions in important money matters through our availability to consult with you at key moments of decision-making, doing the research necessary to ensure you have relevant information, and managing and disclosing potential conflicts of interest in our relationship.


We work with you to anticipate your life transitions, and to be financially prepared for them, by regularly assessing potential changes that may be coming in your life and creating an action plan necessary to address and manage them ahead of time.


We will explore what specific knowledge you will need to succeed in your situation by first thoroughly understanding your needs. We will then explain your options, as well as the risks associated with each choice, and then provide the necessary resources to facilitate your decisions.


We will help you follow through on financial commitments by working with you to prioritize your goals, show you the steps you need to take, and regularly review your progress towards achieving them.


We attempt to help you achieve your financial goals, and we’ll work in concert with you, not just for you, to make this possible. By taking the time to clearly understand your background, attitude towards investing, as well as your needs and objectives, we’ll work collaboratively with you, and on your behalf, while offering transparency around our costs and compensation.
