Cheryl Panther is President of Panther Financial Planning, LLC, a registered investment adviser (Tennessee). She began the firm in 2008 to address the need for creativity, practicality, and unparalleled client service in equal measure for financial planning clients. After working with a number of clients following their divorce who had encountered unexpected and unpleasant financial consequences for which they were not prepared, Cheryl wanted to find ways to help clients and their attorneys understand tax and financial considerations before committing to a divorce settlement. Thus, the practice area of services for divorcing clients was born. Cheryl provides creative, outside-the-box analytical skills to the often complex and confusing financial and taxation issues in divorce cases and settlements, providing a variety of specialized divorce financial services to clients and their attorneys.

Cheryl has been a CPA for more than 25 years and earned the prestigious Personal Financial Specialist designation from the American Institute of CPAs.
