Marcy Maycock, CFP® began her financial career at the age of 16, when she learned that her father had not saved any money for her college education. From that moment, she vowed to forge her own destiny. Eager to enter the business world, she graduated college with High Honors in just over 3 years, attending Duke University and the University of Florida. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, majoring in International Economics and Politics.
Considering the challenging climate that female financial advisors faced in the late 1970’s, Marcy would flourish in the world of television news. She began at WPLG-TV in Miami before moving to the ABC-TV News network bureau in Washington, D.C. While the transition to our nation’s capital had originally been a ten year goal, Marcy would ambitiously reach the milestone in 3 years.
With determination and persistence, Marcy built her personal investment strategy. By investing in the ABC Savings and Investment Plan, she accumulated company stock through payroll deductions. Her stock shares would increase tenfold with Cap Cities’ purchase of ABC, and then again by 4-to-1 when Disney bought Cap Cities. She sold off 2/3 of her ABC stock and diversified by investing into the future: computers (Intel) and healthcare (Pfizer). Ms. Maycock’s tenacity and resolve endured many turbulent stock markets, achieving complete financial independence for herself and her children.
Marcy was so passionate, that she had to pay it forward and help others succeed. After 21 years in television news, she reentered the Financial Services industry. Her versatility and vision led to opportunities with Legg Mason, Merrill Lynch, and Raymond James. Armed with the gold standard designation as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and Chartered Retirement Plan Counselor®, Marcy provides holistic financial planning services with dedication, empathy, and life experience. She holds the Series 7 and 65 FINRA licensing, and maintains her insurance licenses for Life & Health, Long Term Care and Variable Annuities. She has been and will always be a Fiduciary, acting in the best interests of her clients.
Ms. Maycock operates the Washington, DC branch of Main Street Financial Solutions, LLC, a Registered Investment Advisory firm. She is featured in the eBook Leaders & Legends and contributes financial articles to several publications. Marcy has two wonderful children and a fantastic group of family and friends. When she is not working, you may find her in the garden, on the (tennis) court, or traveling the world.
