Leslie Elson

Financial Advisor

I am extremely proud to be a part of a team of advice-based financial advisors. Financial planning isn't just about money to us, it is about helping our clients clarify their dreams, empowering them with a plan and partnering with them long-term to help them accomplish their goals. My mission is to be a trusted partner through my clients’ personal and financial journey, helping them navigate both the challenges and the victories to live more secure and purposeful lives.

In 2018, I started my career in the financial services industry with a sincere passion to make a direct impact on my clients’ well-being. This is a profession in which, if done with integrity and heart, you can truly dedicate your life to improving the lives of others. After a few years of experience and observing certain trends in the industry, I determined that it was very important for me to become a fiduciary and work with an independent firm that does advice-based planning, rather than transactional sales. During the pandemic, I joined LOTUS Financial Partners because their core values (CLARIFY, EMPOWER & PARTNER), their philosophies and their approach to advising, aligned perfectly with me and how I want to service my clients.

I work with a broad spectrum of clients, but I particularly enjoy working with young professionals who are dealing with the challenges of student loan debt, starting a family, buying their first home, etc. while simultaneously looking to invest, accumulate wealth and plan for their future. Another area of passion for me is working with the Latino community. After 5 years living in Spain and getting a Master’s in the language, it is very important for me put my Spanish-speaking skills to good use and help a community that, I feel, is underserved in financial services.

I might be the right advisor for you if you…

  • Want a trusted partner to coach you and hold you accountable along the way.
  • Value independent and objective advice.
  • Love spending time in the mountains (maybe I’ll find you on top of a 14er!), sipping whiskey, and speaking español!
