In addition to her financial advising skillset, Emily Lassiter brings to her clients 14 years of experience as an attorney before pivoting at age 43 to help and serve women throughout their financial journeys at Somerset Advisory in Birmingham, Alabama.

Emily unexpectedly lost her husband in an accident in 2014, and, in the aftermath of this tragedy, sought out a support group for widows that she spoke with regularly. Over and over again, these women brought up questions regarding personal finance and wealth. Through this, Emily realized there was an unmet need for women seeking out wealth advisors who understood each woman’s individualized needs and trajectories and, in researching how to fill this void, found Lauren Pearson, her cofounder at The Wealth Edit. Their mutual passions of serving and helping women through their financial journeys pushed Emily to shift careers and for the pair to establish The Wealth Edit in 2020. Emily finds fulfillment in establishing relationships with her clients, learning about their goals and dreams, and empowering them each to craft and implement a plan to achieve their goals.
