The Clarus Team
Liane Warcup, CFP®, is the founder of Clarus Financial Planning, Inc. A financial advisor since 1997, Liane believes independent, objective advice is something we all need to achieve our goals, dreams, and financial peace of mind.
Liane is a distinguished graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, graduating with both academic and military honors. While serving in the Air Force, she earned her Masters in Public Sector Financial Management from the University of Maryland. As a financial analyst and budget officer, she advised senior managers on financial planning, fiscal management, and internal management controls. She also volunteered as a financial counselor to Air Force personnel. After her Air Force career, Liane became an investment advisor in Washington State. When Liane and her family moved to Illinois in 2001, Liane began to shift her focus to financial planning. After a brief time as a financial consultant at a brokerage firm in Geneva, Liane decided to create Clarus Financial Planning – a firm where clients receive financial planning advice without being sold investments or insurance products.
Liane is happily married to Brian, her spouse since 1993. They reside in Geneva, Illinois, with their two daughters and son. In her free time, she likes to visit national parks with her family (Arches is currently her favorite).
