Georgia Lee Hussey

President & Founder, Modernist financial / CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ / keynote speaker



I built Modernist Financial on a foundation of creativity and collaboration, as a place where families and business owners become educated and empowered around money through the process of financial planning. I believe that relationships are our greatest wealth. I am committed to a partnership-based approach, one in which we are always learning from each other. I come alive when my clients fully express their financial needs and become energized to fulfill them. Modernist is a home for our staff, our clients and our community — it affords us the freedom to think bigger, smarter, and more colorfully; to feel ease and support; to enjoy beauty and art.  I have My undergraduate education in sculpture and writing at Sarah Lawrence College taught me to think in a non-hierarchical and cross-disciplinary manner, skills I carry into my work with clients and in the community. In 2010, I decided that my vocation lay outside my studio and went on to earn an Executive Certificate in Financial Planning as well as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation.  At Modernist, we believe that caring for our wealth is essential to the greater good of the community. I use my resources to support organizations I believe in, including: Write Around Portland, Oregon Cultural Trust, OPB and the Women’s Foundation of Oregon.  I focus my volunteer time as a member of the Money Quotient National Advisory Board and the Oregon Community Foundation's Metropolitan Portland Leadership Council. Modernist also became a Work for Art business in the fall of 2015.
