Managing Partner
Senior Wealth Advisor

Jennifer co-founded Talisman Wealth Advisors in 2021 to create a boutique firm free from big bank biases where she could fulfill her fiduciary duty to clients with complete independence. This enables her to better help the self-reliant women she works with to align their money with what is most meaningful to them.

Prior to Talisman Wealth Advisors, Jennifer partnered with Frank Granizo to form The Granizo Kirby Group in 2018 to expand expertise and support available to clients. Jennifer started her advisory career at Merrill Lynch in 2013 after a successful 25-year career serving clients and stakeholders in numerous leadership roles in industries as diverse as advertising, law, the arts, and nonprofit.

Jennifer holds the Certified Investment Management Analyst® (CIMA®) certification, administered by the Investments and Wealth Institute and taught in conjunction with The Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. She also holds the Chartered SRI Counselor™ (CSRIC®) designation, which provides financial advisors and investment professionals with foundation knowledge of the history, definitions, trends, portfolio construction principles, fiduciary responsibilities, and best practices for sustainable, responsible, and impact (SRI) investments. Jennifer received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Film, Television, and Radio from New York University. She also earned an Executive MBA from Rutgers University School of Business.

Jennifer has spent over 25 years of her career lending her time and knowledge to empowering women of all ages. She served on the boards of Women in Development and the Rutgers Executive MBA Program and was a Financial Advisor coordinator who facilitated the training and development of new financial advisors. For over 10 years, Jennifer served as a Girl Scout Troop Leader of Cranford, New Jersey Troop 40951, Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey Council.

When not working with her amazing clients, Jennifer enjoys seeking global adventures with her husband of 28 years, Brian, and their very interesting and fun college-bound daughter. Other interests include time with friends and loved ones, all things music, all things ocean, all things politics, and occasional stints as a pop and jazz vocalist.
