Dorothy Melnik began her career in 1986 at Merrill Lynch Canada when there were only a handful of female advisors in the business. She earned her M.B.A. from the well regarded McGill University in Montreal. Upon arriving in South Florida in 1991, she worked diligently to focus her practice on a relational based model versus the traditional transactional one because she felt it served the client’s objectives better. She founded Target Wealth Strategies in 2007 and remains affiliated with LPL Financial to be able to remain unbiased regarding recommendations that are in the best interest for her clients. By understanding a client’s current position and cash flow, she strives to best allocate their assets to keep pace with their ever changing life plans. Dorothy’s calm demeanor and vast knowledge and experience helps to weather the difficult economic and market conditions that can quickly derail even the best laid plans.
She has been a resident of Lighthouse Point since 1994 and lives there with her husband, Alex, and their 2 birds that you may see on the occasion upon visiting the office. She enjoys kayaking the many waterways and still dreams about racing cars one day.
