Cecilia Tarlas

Financial Consultant

Matter welcomed Cecilia to our Denver office as an analyst in 2018. With investment consulting internships from Asset Consulting Group and experience in personal finance planning, she quickly assumed a role as financial consultant. Cecilia’s detail-oriented and planful approach to helping families manage the processes and complexities of their financial worlds makes her a valuable contributor to Matter’s client teams. She is especially passionate about helping the rising generation understand their wealth and its potential to help them thrive.

Cecilia earned a BA in business administration with a concentration in finance from the University of Colorado Boulder (Go Buffs!). She continues to mentor students at CU’s Leeds School of Business and particularly enjoys helping sophomores navigate the business school experience and think through their future career paths. Following the lead of her family, longtime volunteers with Meals on Wheels in her hometown of St. Louis, Cecilia delivers meals in her Denver community and is grateful for the opportunity to serve people in need.

Cecilia considers herself a homebody and loves returning to St. Louis to visit family, as well as spending summer days at their home at the Lake of the Ozarks. She also loves skiing (snow and water) and hiking, and considers her daily walk a necessity for brain and body—and a great excuse to binge on her favorite podcasts.
