Playfair Planning Services was named after its founder’s, Kim Bourne's, childhood best friend, Camille Ann Playfair (1970-1996). Camille's death painfully inspired Kim to offer her clients a total financial plan, branching out from being a CPA (tax professional) to attaining the required licenses and becoming a Certified Financial Planner. Camille was killed in a car accident. Subsequently, almost a decade after Camille's death, two of her children were killed in another car accident. These tragedies make Kim keenly aware of the unforeseen challenges that life brings and the importance of being financially prepared for the unforeseen. The Playfair Dove is a symbol of the soul's release from its earth-bound duty. On earth, doves are intimately aware of their environment and demonstrate a highly developed sense of presence. Doves remind us to spread our wings and allow ourselves to reach higher heights. Let your personalized Financial Road Map® elevate your experience.
