We help our clients do more than just build, manage, protect, and transfer wealth to the next generation.  We help our clients build a Thriving Family Legacy by transferring their virtues, family values, and their wisdom to their children and grandchildren.

Planning for Your Life, Lifestyle, and Lasting Legacy.

Managing finances can be challenging, but you don’t have to approach it with uncertainty.  We’re here to help you reach your goals and achieve financial freedom.  With our unique process, we guide you through the best way to manage and maximize your assets, so you can confidently say “I can” instead of “can I.” 

Our focus is on your success, and we are committed to providing lifelong support and objective advice as independent, fiduciary financial planners.  Our mission is to offer you clarity into your finances and give you the confidence you need to live your best life to the fullest and leave a meaningful, lasting legacy.  Trust us to help you reach your financial goals, live the life you deserve, and leave the legacy you desire.

Ellevation Wealth Management and Legacy Planning was founded by Lovie Leach-Yarborough (hence the double L’s in Ellevation…it isn’t a typo!) with the vision of empowering people to achieve their financial independence, through effective financial and legacy planning.  

We have weathered numerous storms over the years, including economic uncertainty, market fluctuations, technological overhauls, and most recently, the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our successful track record speaks for itself, as we’ve helped countless individuals of all ages and backgrounds build wealth, prepare for retirement, and achieve true financial freedom.  By taking the time to truly get to know our clients and their goals, dreams, and aspirations, we enable them to reach their optimal financial state with clarity and develop partnerships that last a lifetime.  Our commitment to excellence is unwavering, and we have full confidence in our ability to help our clients thrive in any financial landscape while living their best lives and leaving a lasting legacy for generations to come.

We'll help you piece it all together.
