A little bit about me outside of being the Director of Girls Going Places. My name is Lynne Kimmich.
As a trusted Financial Representative, my purpose and drive is clear: to provide women with the financial advice, guidance, and strategies to live a life of abundance. My overarching mission is to not only empower young girls and women with financial independence, but to ensure they have a true foundation of financial literacy. While I thrive in a variety of financial disciplines, I focus my expertise on helping women plan for their own financial longevity and enjoy their retirement with confidence.
A 17-year veteran of the financial services industry, I specialize in maximizing my clients’ wealth accumulation, minimizing levels of risk, defending against financial hazards, and enhancing their net retirement income. An entrepreneur at heart, I have dedicated my career to helping people develop and discover their financial acumen and independence. I truly enjoy working with clients to reveal hidden threats and capitalize on new opportunities that protect and grow wealth.
Today, I am the director of Girls Going Places Fort Myers, which focuses on enterprising and community-minded women between 12-18 years of age. I discovered my passion for helping clients become more informed and empowered investors. Working from that foundation, I have expanded my outreach and continue to educate women of all ages.
In addition to Girls Going Places, I am closely involved with, Blessings in a Backpack of Southwest Florida, The Tommy Bohanon Foundation and the Small Business Development Center at Florida Gulf Coast University. I have received a number of awards for my volunteer work, financial guidance, and dedication to causes and communities across the county.
I live in Fort Myers with my amazing husband, Michael, with a combined total of eight children and eleven grandchildren. Outside of the office, I enjoy gourmet cooking and spending time with my fast-growing family.
