Print Story | Email Story

DALTON, Mass. — Natalie Wheeler has joined the Berkshire Money Managament team as operations manager.

Prior to joining Berkshire Money Management, Wheeler was the director of office operations at Atlas Private Wealth Management for nine years. During her time at Atlas, she helped spearhead organizational goals and procedures to ensure that all general office and personnel operations ran smoothly across multiple offices. Her professional versatility provided all employees with the necessary tools, training and resources they needed to be successful.

Wheeler also managed employee benefits and all human resource questions and concerns.

"Natalie has significant executive-level experience. BMM is growing faster, we believe, than any other financial service firm in the area because of our depth and breadth of services," founder and CEO Allen Harris said. "She will play a big role in helping us sustain that growth by keeping our operational machine humming as we offer more sophisticated and customized guidance to our clients."



Despite across-the-board lags in gender diversity in the financial industry, BMM is one of few registered investment advisers that employs men and women equally.

"It is really powerful to look around the ‘boardroom table’ and see the intelligent, hard-working women who make up half of our team," said BMM President Barbara Schmick. "Having this kind of diversity—especially in an industry where it is often a room full of suits and numbers—brings real meaning and purpose to what we do for our clients. There is a realness to it that goes beyond portfolios."

Wheeler is a member of the American Legion Auxiliary Post 29. In her free time, she enjoys playing Frisbee with her 4-year-old black lab Sofia, playing a round of golf, participating in the color run or climbing obstacles at an inflatable 5k. She lives in southern Vermont with her children, Tre and Gianna, and her fiancé Ryan.

Letter: Quit Smoking for Heart Health

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

February is American Heart Month — a great time to quit vaping, smoking or other tobacco products.

Smoking can lead to narrowing blood vessels and high blood pressure and it is a leading cause of heart disease. Vaping is still fairly new and less is known about its effect on the heart. However, the American Heart Association reports that two new studies find that vaping may be just as dangerous by increasing heart disease risk factors.

So, for American Heart Month, make a resolution for a healthier life for you and your family. If you vape, smoke or use other tobacco products, quitting is the most important step you can take to protect your health.

If you want to quit and tried in the past, don't give up. It often takes several tries before you quit for good. However, with planning and support, you can become tobacco-free.

Vapers, smokers and other tobacco product users can call 1-800-QUIT NOW (1-800-784-8669) for free coaching through phone, e-chat, and text 24 hours each day, seven days a week or you can find helpful information and enroll online through KeepTryingMA.org.

Make the choice to quit today, making this the beginning of a smoke-free and healthier you!
