Summerhill portrait

​Hello, I'm Olivia Brooke Summerhill.

I have been divorced, so there is a really good chance I know what you are going through. Divorce may be inevitable. But suffering is not. Let me help.

I know how complicated and overwhelming finances can feel, especially for women who have dedicated their time to their family, and now have to focus on day-to-day financial concerns and long-term wealth management.

I can help you gain control of your money situation and help you understand your wealth, goals, and values moving forward.

You do not have to make the best financially educated decisions on your own. I'm here to protect your money, help you understand your relationship with money, and help you be in control of your financial future.

Create more wealth after divorce

Divorce from an high-net-worth family doesn't mean you have to leave your pre-divorce lifestyle behind.

With the right planning strategies, you can maximize your settlement and alimony and grow your personal long-term wealth—without making sacrifices.

While it might feel overwhelming to suddenly be in charge of complex daily and long-term financial decisions, I can help take weight off your shoulders.

In addition, I have a wide international network of top-tier professionals on my side to help facilitate the plans we put in place together. This powerful team includes luxury home realtors, divorce attorneys, accountants, estate attorneys, forensic accountants, therapists, career coaches, employee benefits consultants, insurance brokers, portfolio managers, and business appraisers.

What Olivia's Clients are Saying:

"Olivia gave me the peace of mind when I needed it the most. She was the epitome of discrete and provided sound, clear advice, that has allowed me and my children to maintain our lifestyle"

"I would not have worked with anyone else during my divorce"

"I was so scared of getting screwed over in the divorce and Olivia gave me permission to feel heard and she understood what to do every step of the way."
 
"All the men at the table were more powerful than me. I was so frustrated that they did not listen in the divorce process. And then my financial advisor introduced me to Olivia."

Background

Growing up, I saw the devastating effects of divorce on my stay-at-home mother in my wealthy family. This inspired my intense curiosity about money. While my financial career began at JP Morgan Chase in 2012, I quickly developed a reputation for being an expert resource for high-net-worth families. I persisted in my training and pursued multiple designations in finance and insurance licenses. Years later, I continued to develop my mastery in finance as a Wealth Manager in a boutique investment firm specializing in financial planning for high-profile and high-net-worth individuals.

Why

My position connected me with female clients who continually referred their newly divorced friends for investment advice and planning. Listening to the needs of each woman, I learned that their main concern was not about having a financial plan for retirement or knowing what stocks to invest in. They needed discreet advice on the fundamentals of money and the daily family spending obligations now that their divorce was final. Because they didn’t have to think about these issues previously, they weren’t sure where or how to get help.

I recognized that this was a hidden yet consistent issue that affluent women post-divorce were facing. There was a shocking lack of resources for these women, and I was now able to understand why the divorces I witnessed growing up had such devastating effects. I knew it didn’t have to be that way.

Determined to address these issues, I started my firm. By doing so, I have become a trusted advocate for women, like you, who want discreet advice and expert guidance. The financial burdens post-divorce are difficult, but I am here to take that weight off your shoulders. Women also need help during their divorce, as they typically do not know the best financial settlement that is possible with just their lawyer's help. I address these issues by consulting with women during the divorce process and help them get the best outcome.

Simplify your daily and long-term goals through money coaching.
