Broker Check


Welcome to The Responsible Investor blog. My name is Danielle Hennesen, a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™. Before starting my role as an LPL Financial Planner for Responsible Investment Group, I counseled clients from all walks of life on a variety of financial issues from emergency situations to long-term planning. My passion is educating clients on their finances and working closely with them to pursue their long-term financial goals. I am excited to be sharing my knowledge on these topics through this blog. To me, a Responsible Investor cares not only about their investments, but all financial plans including retirement, estate, taxes, budgeting, college planning and more.  Please feel free to contact me if you have financial questions that you would like me to answer via this blog.
