As founder and former president of Kusske Financial Management Inc, Mary specializes in helping retirees and pre-retirees achieve financial independence.  Her guiding philosophy is that education is the foundation of financial success.  Mary is well versed in the complicated issues associated with the state of Minnesota’s Public Employee’s Retirement Association (PERA), traditional and Roth IRA’s, and 401(k), 403(b), and 457 deferred compensation plans. 

Mary’s personal experiences compel her to insist that everyone has a plan in place to care for themselves and those they love.  She wants everyone to receive the level and quality of attention she would expect for her own mom.  She obtained the professional designation of CLTC (Certified in Long-Term Care) from the Corporation for Long Term Care Certification in 2012.
