Gaea is a small town girl, born and raised in the mountains of Twain Harte, CA. Always enjoying an outdoor adventure, she spent her summers climbing trees, bike riding, swimming and her winters on skis! She loves the mountains, however, her career brought her to Ventura County in 2006. After graduating from Sacramento State University with a degree in Digital Media, she embarked on her next journey and moved to sea. She started and grew the video department for Princess Cruises and lived on cruise ships on and off for the next six years. After setting up most of the fleet with video, the corporate office pulled her in to manage from shore. In 2009 she decided it was time for a career change and while doing some soul searching found Edward Jones. Never in her wildest dreams did she think that she would become a Financial Advisor, but she took a chance, got hired, passed her exams, opened an office in Carpinteria, CA and never looked back. She absolutely loves her career, and helping people realize their dreams is her passion. She believes financial planning involves more than the game of the stock market, and loves all of her clients and helping them pursue their goals.
With nine years of industry experience at Edward Jones, she decided she wanted greater flexibility to offer different solutions that better cater to her clients needs and risk. This led to the creation of Legacy One Financial in March of 2019. Gaea is passionate about providing an experience that helps her clients live happier and healthier lives! She is excited for the opportunity to partner with LPL Financial, one of the leading financial services companies and one of the largest independent broker/dealer in the nation. She will also be partnering with Thiesen Dueker Financial Consultants, a large consulting firm under the LPL umbrella, with offices across California. These partnerships afford Legacy One the ability to offer the best array of products for her clients. She is excited for the opportunity to meet and work with new individuals with her company, Legacy One Financial.
Her husband, Jay, works as the Maintenance Director at Clearwater Senior Living in Riverpark. Together they have an adorable 4-year-old girl named Bayzil, who keeps them on their toes and brings more joy to their world than they ever thought possible. As a family, they love to travel around the globe, see concerts and live music, go wine tasting, spend time with family and friends, give back to the community and live life to the fullest. Her own family life and time in this career has also taught her how to get her own financial well-being in check, and for that she is truly grateful.
