Kaitlyn (Stroyne) Colditz 
Wealth Management Coordinator
    

Kaitlyn, the newest member of our team, is well on her way in her new career.

Kaitlyn graduated from Duquesne University's Mylan School of Pharmacy with her Doctorate in Pharmacy with a concentration in Management and Pharmacoeconomics in 2014.  For over four years following graduation, Kaitlyn worked as a Clinical Advisor recommending cost saving strategies to health plans.  Her desire to help people on an individual basis and her growing interest in business and entrepreneurship inspired her to change careers and follow in her father's footsteps in the finance world.  During her schooling and her professional career, Kaitlyn noticed the lack of resources available to medical professionals to manage their unique financial situations.  This motivated Kaitlyn to help others learn the process and aid in the protection and accumulation of wealth.

Kaitlyn’s experience with medical professionals and her extensive Medicare and Commercial health plan industry knowledge allows us to enhance our services for our clients.   

Kaitlyn is fully licensed and has mastered her
FINRA Series 7 General Securities, Series 66, and Life, Accident, and Health certifications.  She successfully passed The CFP® Certification Examination, a major requirement in obtaining the Certified Financial Planner™ designation, and is working on the final requirements to become a Certified Financial Planner™ and Chartered Financial Consultant®.

When not in the office, you may find Kaitlyn and her husband enjoying the local running trails with their goldendoodle, Myron; named after the Pittsburgh legend, of course!
