Texas Financial Advisory
January 2008 – Present
With only $6000 in savings, a hope and a prayer, Brooklynn founded Texas Financial Advisory in January of 2008. Her vision then and still is today, was to run a boutique Tax, Investment, and Estate Advisory Firm, that caters to the needs and goals of savers. Hindsight, beginning a business much less an investment advisory business in the year that turned out to be one of the most devastating stock market crashes in US history was actually fortuitous, because it developed a philosophy of conservatism and respect for hard earned nest eggs that were to last our clients entire lives.
Brooklynn holds her Texas insurance license and has passed her Series 65 securities examination. She has a bachelor’s degree in business administration and political science from Baylor University with a minor in Spanish. She went on to earn her Juris Doctor from St. Mary’s School of Law. Brooklynn has been featured on KSAT 12, WOAI 4 and KENS 5 and is quoted in Forbes and Texas Monthly.
Brooklynn, originally from Beeville, Texas, lives in the heart of the Texas Hill Country with her husband, Michael Willy, and her three children: daughter, Kaela Marie Willy; and sons, Coulter Hutchison Willy and Caden Hamilton Willy. She loves spending time with her family and her pets — three dogs, two cats and all the wildlife that comes from living in the country.
