May 24, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event


Presented by

Kristin Summers, Financial Advisor, Morgan Stanley


Our speaker, Kristin Summers, will take us on a three-part financial wellness journey for the months of May, June and July.

According to Krystal Barker Buissereth, CFA, Managing Director and Head of Financial Wellness, Morgan Stanley at Work in an article she penned recently: “From February 2020 to February 2021, about 2.4 million women left the U.S. labor force, compared to 1.8 million men. And even before the COVID-19 pandemic, just 12% of women reported feeling “very confident” they’d be able to retire comfortably”.

Perhaps retirement is around the corner and you are starting to feel a bit panicked that you may not have prepared adequately for that upcoming change in your life? Perhaps retirement is a long time way and you are thinking what is the big rush to save money for retirement when you are just trying to stay afloat with paying off school loans, starting a family, or going on amazing vacations?

Then there is the reality that life can throw us unexpected curveballs, such as a sudden change in employment, an accident or illness, or even the loss of a loved one – in such cases, are we prepared financially to deal with those events?

For Kristin’s first topic on this journey, she will share with us her insights and strategies on creating our financial future, specifically in the following areas:

➢ Savings strategies for an financially savvy future
➢ Planning for retirement

Come to all three talks presented by Kristin and be ready to become financially savvy with your money!


Kristin Summers began her career as a music supervisor in Los Angeles working on feature films such as “The Blind Side”, “Sex and The City 2”, and Tom Fords’ “A Single Man”. With time, she took her talents to the boutique music publishing company, Heavy Hitters Music. As an integral member of the team, she discovered, signed, and shaped artists for music placements in film and TV. She worked alongside major television networks, editors, and producers to create music that fit to specified project needs. In the spring of 2013, Kristin returned to her music supervision roots, becoming an Emmy Award-nominated music supervisor for her 4 years of work overseeing the music department for the daytime talk show, The Talk, at leading broadcasting network, CBS. In 2015, Kristin also cultivated and began teaching the Music Supervision in Film & TV course at Belmont University’s west coast location. Since leaving Los Angeles in 2017, Kristin has found a new home in Chicago and a new passion in financial planning for individuals, families, and small business-owners. While focusing on women’s financial planning, entertainment industry strategies, and socially responsible investment planning at Morgan Stanley, Kristin continues to help people across the country grow and protect their wealth to fund future goals, while also giving back to the entertainment community as a songwriting mentor to 1000+ songwriters.
