Ashley Curiel, CFP®, CRPC®
LPL Registered Representative
CA Insurance License #0F09945
Ashley joined Oakmont Financial Group in 2016. After nine years of being a Financial Advisor for a local credit union, she decided to join our independent firm in order to provide her clients with a diverse range of investment options for the client portfolios she manages. With her love of Sonoma County, her strong financial planning background, and her natural kindheartedness we knew she would be a wonderful addition to our team.
Graduating from Sonoma State University in 2006, Ashley decided to pursue further education and earned her CFP® designation in 2011 (CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER). Creating the proper financial plan for her clients allows them to understand and track their goals easily, allowing more time to focus their energy on things they like to do – spend time with families, travel, purchase a home, or enjoying retirement with a solid understanding of their income stream.
As the parents of two young daughters, Ashley and her husband have a very busy schedule, but do their best to enjoy the beauty and diversity of Sonoma County that they love. Ashley enjoys staying active by exploring Annadel park and participating in adult soccer and softball leagues.
CRPC® conferred by the College for Financial Planning.

She is a highly dedicated and organized individual, with a creative passion and a genuine smile.

Michelle is truly pleased at the wealth of experience our client services associates offer at Oakmont Financial Group and is proud to help manage this department.
When Michelle is not busy at work, she enjoys traveling, hiking and spending time with her family. Like everyone else in the Harris family, Michelle is also an avid San Francisco Giants fan.
