Meet Kathleen . . . 

Sybil Praski joined the Institute for Preparing Heirs after a 30 year career as a successful financial advisor and founder of her own LPL-affiliated firm. As an advisor she took great pride in helping her clients achieve both their financial goals and their personal aspirations. Always looking beyond managing the money, Sybil was an early adopter of generational wealth transfer planning, embracing the entire family as her client by becoming their Trusted Family Advisor. Sybil experienced the positive impact of helping families prepare their children for inheritance which proved to be a major differentiator in her practice growth and value. Through her work with the Institute, Sybil brings her enthusiasm, insight and a keen understanding of the new opportunities advisors have to differentiate and build their practices by offering new generational wealth transfer planning tools and resources to successful individuals and families.
