Our Firm One of the first things people think of when they hear about FS&I is our beautiful, limestone office building. Although it may just seem like a place to house our services, our location plays a larger role in who we are as a company.Our founder and owner, Mary Sommers Carden, has worked hard throughout her career to get where she is today. When she started her firm years ago, she had no idea that it would evolve into such a growing, successful business. What she did know, however, was that she wanted to make a difference in her clients’ lives and keep pushing herself, both professionally and personally.Fast forward to today and Mary is the only female financial advisor in Howard County to accomplish three major goals: run her practice independently, own her office building and serve as the president and founder of her firm. She is proud of the practice she has built from the ground up and has dedicated her career to helping other successful women manage their finances.At FS&I, we provide financial solutions and innovative strategies to single women, families and retirees.
