Colleen Farley


Founder, Certified Financial Planner Practitioner

Colleen joined Loring Advisory Group in 2006, bringing to the firm more than 20 years of insurance experience. Colleen handles diverse client needs and is passionate about helping women secure their financial futures. One of Colleen’s goals is to ensure that her female clients are empowered to save for potentially longer lifespans. This often includes assisting clients with caregiving details and the preservation of assets potentially devastated by chronic health issues in retirement.

Colleen is versed in financial details surrounding divorce, estate planning, same-sex relationships and widows. She also maintains a working knowledge of the (often complex) details of Medicare, social security and entitlements.

Colleen has called Smithfield, Rhode Island home for more than twenty years, raising two (now grown) children with her husband Jeff. When not working, Colleen can be found reading historic biographies, entertaining or staying active out of doors with her bike or kayak.
