Playfair Planning was named after Camille Ann Playfair (1970-1996), our founder Kim Bourne’s childhood best friend. 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 life's unforeseen challenges and the importance of being financially prepared for the unforeseen. The Playfair Dove symbolizes 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.
