Meet Melanie, the founder of Next Play Financial. With a Bachelor of Science in Finance from George Mason University, Melanie gained skills in investment manager performance analysis, monitoring, and selection for institutional investors during her seven years at an investment consulting firm. She then moved on to work with individual investors, gaining valuable expertise in personal finance. Her entrepreneurial spirit led her to open her own RIA in 2018, and Next Play Financial Solutions, LLC was born.

When Melanie isn’t hard at work, she treasures every moment she gets to spend with her family! Living in beautiful Loudoun County, Virginia, we have access to so many wonderful activities and attractions to explore together.
