SeaCure Advisors serve as a financial firm geared to provide guidance for clients to make financially sound and responsible decisions in all stages of life. SeaCure Advisors, LLC, is based in Kentucky and Florida to further help individuals and businesses manage their wealth.
Prior to her role as a certified financial planner, Carolyn worked as a science teacher for seventeen years. However, in 1993 after reflecting on her own financial issues, Carolyn transitioned from teaching science courses to the financial service industry. She began working with Equitable/AXA Financial and specialized as a retirement planning consultant for teachers and non-profit organizations due to her education background. Carolyn has been instrumental in the founding of Pegaesus Advisors, Inc., SeaCure Advisors, LLC, and co-founding an investment advisory firm she eventually sold in 2001.

Her dedication to the profession has led Carolyn to be a sought-after speaker for financial planning workshops and seminars. In 2001 after realizing her clients were experiencing difficulties making financial decisions, Carolyn partnered with a highly-recognized wealth counselor. Her innovative decision proved to be successful, which led to a feature in the Boston Globe and being quoted in the Wall Street Journal. She is inducted into the 2016 “Top Executive of the Year in the Financial Industry” by the International Association of Top Professionals.
Carolyn believes this career is her calling after the passing of her late husband, Jack Howard in 2008 from brain cancer. She attributes her success to developing a more personal understanding with clients, perseverance, hard work, and passion for helping others.
