Cindy M. Bigras

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™

Cindy grew up in Vermont and graduated from Georgetown University in Washington, DC. Following graduation, she lived in Italy for three years, and, as anyone who knows her can attest, she loves all things Italian. Cindy then spent five years in New York and enjoys frequent trips back to the Big Apple for business and pleasure.  

In 1986, when she relocated to Western Massachusetts, Cindy's career in financial services began. For several years, she worked as an agent at a large mutual insurance company. This solid foundation in risk management proved essential to a financial planning career. She established her own advisory practice in 1995 and affiliated with Commonwealth Financial Network® in 1999. Her diverse background is an asset in forming strong relationships with clients and their families. These relationships are one of the most rewarding aspects of working as a financial planner.

Cindy lives in Western Massachusetts and travels frequently. She enjoys tennis, literature, the New York Times crossword puzzle, and doing her own home repairs!
