Laura Adams, Client Relations Manager
Laura has grown in her role at Hansen’s and we congratulate her on passing her Series 7 in 2018.  She currently assists in taking care of clients’ questions and concerns along with maintaining and updating records but is looking to transition into a full-time advisor in the future. She has a passion for helping people realize their goals, whether artistically or financially, and enjoys using her experience in teaching and design to share Hansen’s Advisory Services, Inc.’s knowledge of financial planning and socially responsible investing.


Julie Wright, Administrative Assistant
Julie comes to us with a degree in Accounting and a background in fundraising. She loves the quiet of the outdoors and spends as much time as she can sailing and hiking. But she is also teaching her four children to appreciate their time in nature and that can be anything but quiet. Julie is excited to bring her passion for the outdoors into an office that tackles environmental issues.





Lisa Chasse, Administrative Associate
The newest member of our team, Lisa Chasse, brings a background in education and retail along with her Series 7 and 66 registration licenses to her role as Administrative Associate. Hansen’s values of Socially Responsible Investing match her desire to support climate change efforts as well as other global issues making her a great fit with our team.

Lisa’s natural curiosity about people, combined with a drive to create wonderful customer service experiences, is one of the things that she has enjoyed most in her work life.  She looks forward to bringing this passion for customer service to our clients addressing any concerns or investment questions they have while she continues to grow in her position.

Lisa’s favorite pastime is riding her bike along the Erie Canal Trail and she enjoys boating, camping, and scuba diving with her husband and two daughters.

She has competed in the Muscle Man, Delta Lake, and Green Lakes triathlons and is happiest when she is biking, swimming or running! When she isn’t working hard as an athlete or a business person, she can be found chasing her adorable Golden Doodle named Confetti.
