RBC Wealth Management Presents Expert Panel on “The Tie Between Health and Wealth”



Event presented in collaboration with Ellevate Network Twin Cities to empower women in business

MINNEAPOLIS (November 5, 2018) — RBC Wealth Management, one of the nation’s largest wealth management firms, will present a thought-provoking panel discussion, “The Tie Between Health and Wealth,” on November 28 hosted by Be The Match. Joining RBC in presenting this event is Ellevate Network Twin Cities, the leading network for professional women dedicated to closing the gender achievement gap in business.

Attendees will hear from an expert panel of leaders from both financial and health and wellness fields to discuss the importance of investing in personal well-being for the benefit of a secure financial future. The discussion will be facilitated by RBC Wealth Management Chief of Staff Kristen Kimmel and features the following speakers:

  • Angie O’Leary, head of wealth planning at RBC, will provide insights on the cost of healthcare and savings options
  • Courtney Jordan Baechler, preventative cardiologist, will discuss the importance of physical health and self-care
  • Ricka Robb Kohnstamm, owner of Align Whole Health Coaching, will speak about keeping a health mind and managing stress

“Busy, successful women tend to take care of the needs of others first, so we often neglect our physical, mental, and financial health,” said Kimmell. “At this event, experts will discuss tangible ways we can better invest in our own health — mind, body, spirit — for the benefit of our financial future.”

“The Tie Between Health and Wealth” will be held from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at Be The Match Headquarters, 500 N 5th St, Minneapolis. Advanced ticket purchase required.
