FA Center: A rocky divorce teaches a financial adviser about women’s money problems

Carbonaro’s protracted battle to extricate herself from her marriage taught her the value of maintaining a calm, clear perspective on even the most wrenching personal conflicts. A certified financial planner, she vowed then to help women gain financial independence.
