The season of fun recently started at the Atherton Wealth Advisors Family Appreciation event in Lincoln with a visit from Santa Claus for kids as well as fun-loving adults.

What a great Santa Claus pictured here! He has beautiful white hair and beard and a kind and warm personality!

The Atherton Wealth Advisors was established 35 years ago and is a family-owned holistic financial planning firm in Lincoln. Richard P. “Dick” Gootee is its president.

Elizabeth “BJ” Gootee CFO, enjoys working alongside her husband, Dick, and their two daughters, Kim and Niki. She is passionate about making everyone around her feel cared for, happy and loved, especially grandchildren, Dallas, Duke, Sydney and Presley. Being with her family is what truly makes Elizabeth “BJ” Gootee happy.

“My focus is to create balance with family, business, friends and health,” she said. “Embrace every day. Work hard and enjoy your life!”

What a great motto! No wonder they are so successful!
