Lisa's Bio

Meet Lisa Waite!

Lisa is responsible for on-boarding and servicing wealth management clients at Capital Wealth Advisors.  In this capacity, she gets to meet and work with many clients and recognizes the benefit of introducing them to the 6Ds concept of “being prepared and not scared.”   This is what has drawn Lisa to become a part of the 6Ds team.  Lisa loves people and we love working with Lisa!

As a single mother raising two daughters, Lisa wants to make sure she is prepared for the 6Ds and that her own affairs are in order.  She encourages and mentors her daughters to understand and take control of their finances and be their own CFOs.   When Lisa’s father passed away, she saw how difficult it was for her mother to handle her new financial reality, despite how organized and prepared her mom thought she was.   It’s never too early or too late to address the 6Ds.  

Lisa graduated from Penn State University in 1982 with a BA in General Arts & Sciences and in 1984 with an MBA in International Business.  She enjoys spending time with friends, playing tennis, going to the beach, dining out, traveling, attending Broadway shows, and concerts and reading.
