Past Experience

Prior to founding New Path Planning, I served as the director of financial planning and operations for a boutique wealth management firm. I have spent my two decade career creating strategic financial plans.


What sets you apart?

  • We have a deep specialty in the financial intricacies of divorce

  • Kristi Tidwell is one of the few advisors nationwide, holding both the CFP® and CDFA® designations

  • We keep our costs low, and therefore are able to charge much less than other advisors during an already financially stressful time

  • Not only has Kristi dealt with complex financial situations, but she also has significant experience digging through financial statements looking for irregularities and red flags

"After going though my own unexpected divorce, I realized the struggle facing couples as they separate. You are full of shock, sadness, fear and not in the best frame of mind to be making future altering decisions. Even after being a financial planner for years, during that time I needed factual, unbiased input and support from outside sources.

My mission at New Path Planning is to help level the playing field. Often times there is a spouse that was considerably more involved in a couple's finances. I hope to empower and educate those who were adding to the family in other ways.

Lawyers are your advocate, but they are legal experts, not always financial experts. Many times they don't have the time (or patience), and you don't have the money to pay for their in-depth analysis of your financial position. I can work with your attorney to evaluate the pluses and pitfalls of potential settlements."
