We are excited to announce that Kathryn Kubiak-Rizzone has joined the Values Added team as an associate financial advisor!

Kathryn loves helping women and families navigate the many financial decisions they face on the path to financial freedom, with a specific focus on serving the intersectional needs of women, people of color and LGBT+ folx. Her background in physical therapy and higher education highlights her passion for helping others understand complex topics and implement the changes they seek to reach their goals. 

Kathryn lives in Rochester, New York with her family, where she is a parent leader with a strong commitment to educational equity and anti-racist advocacy. She has served on multiple nonprofit boards and strategic planning committees, is a member of her town and school districts’ Diversity and Equity committees, and is a grassroots activist in her community. When she’s not sharing financial guidance or working toward systems change, Kathryn can be found reminding adolescents to complete their chores and keeping a toddler from destroying the house. Her favorite ways to strive for work-life balance are family hikes, cooking, high-intensity workouts with good music, and traveling with her wife.

Kathryn has a BS in Physical Therapy from SUNY at Buffalo, an MS in Human Movement Science from UNC Chapel Hill, and a Certificate in Financial Planning from NYU School of Professional Studies. She is a member of the Financial Planning Association. 

We know you’ll love Kathryn and can’t wait for you to meet her!
