Elizabeth Young, CFP®
Partner & Senior Wealth Advisor
As a partner & senior wealth advisor, Elizabeth Young finds it gratifying whenever one of her clients reaches a long-held goal with her help and guidance. Those “aha” moments drive the work she does for our firm, including serving as the primary financial planning contact for clients and overseeing general client service.
Elizabeth developed an interest in finance while attending college; however, her courses at the College of Business at Kansas State University didn’t give her the personal planning experience she craved. She eventually transferred to the Personal Financial Planning program at the university and never looked back.
Now a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, Elizabeth has been with Clayton Wealth Partners for over 13 years. In addition to her financial planning responsibilities, she supervises team members in advisor roles, conducts client seminars, and writes for our firm’s quarterly newsletter.
Outside of work, Elizabeth actively serves the community, including as a board member of the Topeka Community Foundation Women’s Fund. She and her family live in Lyndon, where she enjoys CrossFit, cooking, holiday Hallmark movies, and all the beauty that rural living has to offer.
