Lisa C. Decker, Strategic Divorce Advisor™ is a woman who has overcome the overwhelming in her own life and as a result, she really understands what her clients are going through and how to best serve them.
As a discreet problem-solver she helps clients move from confusion to clarity in their divorce guiding them — step-by-step — from contemplation through completion while helping them save their money and their sanity in the process.
Lisa is no stranger to life challenges with her biggest challenges of all – being simultaneously and dually diagnosed with Breast Cancer and Multiple Sclerosis at the young age of 36 years old.
What strikes people most when they meet Lisa is that she prefers to focus on thriving, not just surviving, through life’s trials and tribulations by being centered on gratitude and “Looking for the gifts within” every life challenge.
“I bring a perspective of care and compassion to those I come in contact with because I understand the challenge of being thrown a huge curve ball when going through everyday life. I strive to serve as an inspiration to others in showing that you can overcome whatever life throws at you and come out even better on the other side.”
As the Founder and CEO of Divorce Financial Insight, LLC d/b/a Divorce Money Matters, her passion and intense desire to help guide and inspire others has led her to create innovative ways to help people through the challenges of divorce in a better, not bitter way, while steering them to a superior outcome in the end.
Lisa’s advice cuts through traditional thinking and lends new perspectives on how to get a better settlement, that many lawyers may not even be aware of, which has led her to be interviewed by the media including CNBC.com, Business Week, The NY Times, First for Women, Forbes Women’s and Oprah magazines, as well as being a sought after radio show guest and public speaker.
Lisa currently serves on the Advisory Board of Visions Anew (having previously served as Co-Chair and Treasurer of the Operating Board), one of the Premier Women’s Divorce Support Organizations in the country with support groups and weekend divorce school retreats that support, guide, empower and encourage those impacted by divorce.
