Mary Murphy has moved her LPL Financial planning practice to LifeMap Wealth Management’s Springfield office at 1124 Rickard Road. She has utilized LPL Financial’s broker-dealer and corporate registered investment advisor service for 18 years and will now also be affiliated with LifeMap Wealth Management as an independent financial planning practitioner and wealth advisor.

Murphy has been in the financial planning business since 1984 and most recently had her own office on Greenbriar Drive. However, she said the idea of being part of a team was appealing.

“We never know what the future holds; we certainly found that out this last year,” she said. “As I encourage my clients to plan, I also needed to have a plan in place to provide for my clients. I’m enjoying being surrounded with other knowledgeable LPL professionals.”

Gerald Seibert, Jake Gronewold and Kip Reiss also work as wealth advisors with LifeMap Wealth Management. “I’ve known them for a quite a few years and thought we’d be a good fit as far as how we approach business and plan for clients,” said Murphy. “I’m enjoying the team atmosphere and the ability to provide increased service for our clients.”
