Berthy Nora Aguirre-Corral

Financial Services Professional

Berthy is a Bilingual and Bi-cultural Financial Services Professional. Her main focus is working with business owners, physicians and families with special needs in retirement planning, insurance, and investment, all while providing expert guidance to help them achieve lifelong financial well-being.

She earned a BA in Tourism Administration at the Insituto Superior de Turismo in Chihuahua, Mexico in 1988. That same year she migrated to the United States. She entered the professional world in 2000 after being a full-time mom for twelve years. Later, she became a Senior Media Consultant for Time Warner in El Paso and then a Business Consultant for the international marketing company Hibu. At Hibu, Berthy became part of the USH elite team of professionals, whose aim was to understand and reduce the advertising and digital divide that separates Hispanic-owned businesses from more advanced US enterprises. Her favorite special interest is serving as a volunteer talking to young parents, special needs families, and business owners about her experiences as an immigrant to the United States, and about her struggles to advance and succeed, despite the language barrier.

She serves as a volunteer for different organizations; however, she is noted for her identification with and passion for AVANCE’s mission when she became a member of the board in 2004. She also served as Secretary National Board of Directors and chaired the Programs Committee from 2010 to 2014.

Berthy finds her biggest inspiration to succeed are her four daughters, Nora, Anna, Ivonne, Clarissa and her granddaughter Frida Anabella.

Lizzie Dipp Metzger

Founder and Principal

Lizzie’s firsthand experience on how disruptive business succession and estate planning can be, she saw the need for financial advisors to act as quarterbacks, truly overseeing the big picture of a client’s needs, not just the parts that they’re directly involved in. She founded Crown Wealth Strategies to be that kind of firm, and she credits her comprehensive, client-centric approach with the fact that her business has grown into one of the most sought-after advisory practices in the nation.
