Amy Adams, a Johnston County native, has been in the financial services industry since 2013. Amy learned at a young age the importance of securing your financial future and understands that a one size fits all approach does not work for everyone. She is committed to developing a personal relationship with each client, so she can better meet the needs of each individual person and their family.
Amy lives in Benson with her husband Ray, their energetic German Shepherd, and pleasantly plump cat. Together they enjoy travelling, especially to the Outer Banks, walks through downtown Benson with their dog, and spending time with family during their monthly game night.
In her free time, Amy enjoys photography and the arts. She participates in the occasional ballet class and sings country music with her cousins.

We chose the Bonsai Tree as our logo because the creation and care of a bonsai reflects the 3 principals that form the foundation of our firm.
Not only does it take years of practice to learn to sculpt the bonsai tree, but it also takes years of care and attention to form a single tree. We believe it is the same with the service that we provide our clients. We continually educate ourselves and our clients on the financial industry and new ways we may be of service. We spend as much time as needed with every client to create and implement an in-depth financial plan for their family or business.
When sculpting a bonsai tree a master practitioner does not choose the shape of the three, the tree dictates the form that is chosen. The master allows the true form of the tree to guide each decision or cut that is made. As we work with our clients, their unique goals and interests guide our recommendations and actions.
The art of bonsai is a process where the tree both guides and is guided by the practitioner. Often this practice and the tree are passed on through many generations. We will partner with our clients in a long term, dynamic relationship that is flexible to change but built to last.
