About Kathy Armstrong

Meet Kathy

Kathy Armstrong provides clients with holistic financial planning throughout all stages of their lives. With decades of experience, she now manages a dynamic financial planning practice at Heritage Financial Consultants, alongside her daughter, Elizabeth Paal Goss. They specialize in comprehensive financial planning in the areas of asset management, retirement planning, education funding, personal risk management, and estate planning. Through extensive experience and uncompromising integrity, Kathy and Elizabeth deliver objective, straightforward strategies to help their clients achieve their lifelong financial goals.

Kathy has been repeatedly recognized as a Premier Partner for high performance by Lincoln Financial Advisors. A faculty associate at the Carey Business School at The Johns Hopkins University for nearly 20 years, Kathy has published countless articles related to financial planning and is a frequent keynote speaker on financial issues.

Kathy and her husband, Don, reside in Baltimore; however you may often find them on weekends playing along the Delaware beaches with their golden retriever, Molly and labradoodle Sophie.  But, Kathy is most proud of their five adult children and eight grandchildren who keep them busy building family memories.  CRN-3447933-021021
