An El Paso Financial Advisor is the first Hispanic woman to win a national award. Lizzie Dipp Metzger was named Top Financial Advisor for New York Life, one of the country’s largest investment companies.

Dipp Metzger beat out 12,000 other people to win the top spot. She is the founder and president of Crown Wealth Strategies, a local investment company.

“I just feel really blessed. It recognizes the kind of work we’ve been doing on comprehensive wealth management and planning,” Dipp Metzger told KTSM.

In addition to being a financial planner, she is also El Paso born and raised and the mother of three children.
