Alexandra Baig, MBA, CFP® has an MBA from the University of Michigan and her CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation and is a member of the Academy of Special Needs Planners. Alexandra’s first career was as a stock market analyst in Hong Kong and China. A search for a more meaningful life’s work took her to L’Arche, an international, interfaith network of communities where people with and without intellectual and developmental disabilities share life. Her work at L’Arche introduced Alexandra to the financial planning challenges of people with physical, intellectual, developmental and behavioral disabilities and their families. In particular, she is well-versed in the government benefits available to people with special needs and the rules governing them. Her goal is to help people with disabilities and their families make the most of public and private money to live the life they chose.
