As a financial advisor, Pat Baxter has assisted numerous and varied clients in reaching their financial and aspirational retirement goals. She believes that the ideal way to create a "set it and forget it" retirement plan is to, foremost, make sure that "guaranteed lifetime income" is at the core of the overall planning strategy.
Most people worry about outliving their assets, and they should, based on today's statistics and realities. During our working years, our primary reason for earning a living is to maintain guaranteed income. However, when we retire, most of us simply hope our assets will create the financial resources we need for a lifetime.

Since 2002, she has guided hundreds of individuals, couples and business owners to successfully plan for their financial and retirement futures.
Prior to REAP Legacy, Inc., Ms. Baxter had a successful career working for a few highly recognized Silicon Valley high tech companies.
Ms. Baxter, originally from Chicago, IL, is a proud graduate of Marquette University. She has made the Bay Area her home for several years. Spending time with her family, giving back to the community, and cycling are her additional passions.
"One of my goals is to have the wheels of my bike touch every continent."
