A Loving Partnership: George & Phyllis Nolan_DSC4779

I continue the work that originally started in my life with my husband and business partner, George Nolan. From the start, we were best friends and partners in love, family, life and business. His spirited legacy continues in the work of our company and in the work I do for my clients.

Moving forward after losing George in the tragic ski accident in March 2016 has been emotionally difficult and certainly life-changing. I am now emerging ever more dedicated to bring my energy, expertise and natural skills to clients who are seeking to achieve their self-defined next level of success.
