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. Her goal is to alleviate the anxiety that surrounds finance and provide simple advice for all of life's stages and changes.
An advocate of financial literacy for children, Liz is the author of Beyond Piggy Banks and Lemonade Stands: How to Teach Young Kids About Finance (2019).
She is also a regular finance contributor on Forbes.com, focusing on everyday personal finance that anyone can understand and use; her articles provide real world simple, accessible, and entertaining financial advice. In additional to writing for Forbes, she has been interviewed by the Wall Street Journal, PBS, and multiple local radio programs.
In addition to her CFP, she holds an MBA from Wake Forest University and is a member of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) and the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA). Liz joined FFC in 2014 as a Financial Planning Assistant and started as a Financial Planner in 2017.
Liz lives in Westchester NY with her husband and children. Outside of work, she can be found playing dinosaurs with her toddler son, on “movie dates” with her five-year-old daughter, conducting science experiments with her nine-year-old stepson, or sneaking away for the much needed date night with husband and friends.
