What she does: She helps people manage their estate and decide how it should be transferred.
Why she started the business: She said many people feel their only option in managing their estate is to go to an attorney, which some feel is risky and can cost a lot. She started the business about two and half years ago.
What can be included in an estate: Real estate, bank accounts, stocks, bonds, life insurance, intellectual property and more. "It can even be airline miles," she said.
What can happen if people don't plan: The property can end up going to people the owner doesn't want it to go to and arguments can end up in court.
Why she likes doing business in Carson City: She said it has a great business climate with lots of people who are easy to work with.
