Amanda Wray, Behavorial Financial Advisor, leads the Scottsdale, Arizona office for Brightscape Investment Centers. Amanda brings warmth and creativity to the financial planning process for her clients. She helps clients uncover their core values and attitudes towards money to help them make better financial decisions.
After spending a decade in corporate level marketing for Verizon and The Dallas Morning News, Amanda ventured out on her own to help individuals and small business owners navigate the ever-changing world of insurance and risk planning. She never looked back and her passion for planning quickly evolved to financial planning for those in or approaching retirement.
Amanda has a passion for working with clients who have reached a crossroads in their lives and need objective advice and an empathetic ear. She seeks to unlock the opportunities within your money path that speak to who you are, where you are at, where you want to - and realistically can - be.
While the focus of the practice is financial planning, the angle of attack is more holistic in approach. Amanda will take the time to understand your situation both on and off the spreadsheet. Complicated financial jargon does not live here (unless you want it to). A custom financial plan is the intended destination as no two journeys are exactly alike.
A graduate of the University of Texas with a BBA in Management and an emphasis in Entrepreneurial studies, Amanda prides herself as a 5th generation Native Texan although she now calls Arizona home.
When she’s not serving her clients, Amanda enjoys playing competitive pickleball, traveling, volunteering in her community of Fountain Hills and Scottsdale, and spending time with friends and family.
