Deborah Frazier is the founder of Frazier Financial Consultants. She started FFC in 1986 with a desire to advise clients without the selling of products. She did not know at that time that Fee-Only financial planning was in its infancy. In 1992, she discovered like-minded professionals in the National Association for Professional Financial Advisors (NAPFA). She immediately joined and continues to be an avid, devoted member.
Deborah has been quoted in many financial publications, including but not limited to: Wall Street Journal, Smart Money, Money Magazine, Kiplinger, Bloomberg Wealth Management, Golf Magazine and Triangle Business Journal. She has participated in Kiplinger's Jump Start your Retirement program as well as their online question and answer segments. She received a BS from the University of Rochester, New York and an MBA from Meredith College.
Outside of working, Deborah likes to travel with her husband, play Mah Jongg and bridge with her girlfriends, and dote on her six grandchildren.
Richard joined Frazier Financial Consultants as a Financial Assistant in 2003 after graduating Appalachian State, and became a Financial Planner in 2006. Rich strongly believes in a comprehensive approach to financial planning. Solving the unique puzzle of each client’s individual needs and goals is what drives his passion for financial planning.
He received his CFP designation in 2006, and is currently a member of FPA (Financial Planning Association) and NAPFA (National Association of Personal Financial Advisors). Rich has been quoted in Golf Magazine and has participated in Kiplinger Jumpstart Your Retirement online program as well as their popular online question and answer segment.
He currently lives with his wife and two children in Chapel Hill, NC. Before Financial Planning, Rich spent a year on a minor professional golf tour, and still enjoys spending his (rare) free time on the course.
Liz decided to go into financial planning after the birth of her first child in 2013. Like so many other new parents, she realized the overwhelming need to make sure her new family was financially prepared and protected. This ultimately began her passion for helping other young families and working professionals.
Liz grew up in Chapel Hill, NC, received her BS at NC State and MBA from Wake Forest University. Liz then moved to New York City in 2008 for work, where prior to financial planning she was Marketing Director at Forbes Media. Liz joined FFC in 2014 as a Financial Planning Assistant, received her CFP in 2016 and started as a Financial Planner in 2017. She is a member of NAPFA and FPA, and a contributor on Forbes.com.
Liz is married with two sweet young children and lives in Westchester, NY. Her favorite vacation spot is North Carolina, where she travels frequently to visit her family (and enjoy the warm weather).
