I’m Laura Seymour, the founder of TorchLight Financial.  I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner and truly enjoy working with clients transitioning into retirement or already retired. 

I’ve been working in the financial planning industry since 2007 and founded TorchLight in 2011.  I have worked with hundreds of clients over the last 15 years to navigate the path to retirement as well as general financial considerations.  It is my goal to use clear language versus “financial terms” to help people understand concepts and considerations related to financial choices.  By offering comprehensive advice as well as ongoing investment management, I can truly know you and become a trusted partner in your decisions and journey. 

I grew up on a dairy farm in rural Minnesota (near Willmar) with loving parents who may not have had a lot of money but really stressed personal responsibility and integrity.  I value authentic, genuine relationships with people and am grateful for clients who have trusted me to help them with their financial decisions.

Travel and cycling are my non-work passions.  Shannon, my life partner, and I traveled to Ireland (he’s 100% Irish!) in 2023 as well as Maui, Boston and Chicago.  We are planning a guided Tour de France bike trip for 2025.  Leading a weekly women’s cycling group and logging as many miles as I can on my Bianchi Infinito are some of my favorite summertime activities in Minnesota. 

I look forward to getting to learn about you!
