Lauren M. F. Hebel, CFA

Associate Director

Lauren came to Matter in 2013, after a six-year stint at Crestone Capital Advisors in Boulder, Colorado. She brought a strong analytical background, an economics degree from James Madison University, and her CFA designation to Matter, and she is particularly skilled at helping families find technical solutions that align with their goals and values.

Based in our St. Louis office, Lauren works with Matter families around the country. She especially enjoys building relationships across generations and helping each family member develop financial knowledge and confidence. Lauren also helps to shape our firm’s investment strategy and point of view as a member of the Matter investment committee.

Though Lauren has lived all over the map, she is very happy to call St. Louis home. She and her husband have three children, and they love to explore their community as a family, on foot and by bike. On summer afternoons, you’ll find Lauren and her husband relaxing on the porch and catching up with neighbors while their kids play together in the yard.

Lauren also makes frequent trips to Colorado to ski, hike, and visit friends and family there. She enjoys reading books that challenge her view of the world and, when she has free time, she volunteers at her church, in her children’s school, and for the Girl Scouts.
