Raffa Wealth Management’s Summer

This summer has been eventful here at Raffa Wealth Management, both in and out of the office. As summer wraps up, we wanted to share some of the highlights from each of our summer’s. There was a lot of beach time for everyone, and we seem to have favored the Northeastern beaches!


Dennis Gogarty, President

My wife (Alisa) and kids, Olivia (14), Rian (12), and Nina (9) spend the summer on Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire with Alisa’s parents.  I visit as much as possible and enjoy family time on our boat (Cannon Ball) and hiking around NH’s Belknap and White Mountains.  This year we took a trip to Montreal and Quebec City, Canada.  

The highlight, and most terrifying part, was zip lining with my oldest daughter across the Montmorency Falls north of Quebec City.



Mark Murphy, Chief Investment Officer

The Murphy family spent plenty of time at the pool and visiting family in Annapolis and State College.  We also went on vacation to Maine and Cape Cod and survived the 1,800 mile drive!






Ryan Frydenlund, Senior Portfolio Manager

It’s been an eventful summer outside of work between buying a new car, moving apartments, celebrating the Washing Capitals’ Stanley Cup victory, and trips to Dallas, West Palm Beach, Charlottesville, and New York City.  Highlights include rock climbing in the Shenandoah and meeting soccer superstar Wayne Rooney at a restaurant in DC.  As the summer comes to an end, I’m looking forward to football season and walking my dog in  temperatures under 80 degrees!



John McAuliffe, Operations Associate

Over the summer I got to spend time on Cape Cod and on Schroon Lake in the Adirondacks.  I am also looking forward to welcoming my second niece into the world in the next few weeks!






Kate deLacy, Director of Communications

This summer I joined Raffa Wealth Management! I also had the opportunity to travel up north and spend some time with family in Rockport, MA. Lucky for me, we had plenty of great days on the water.




Jasmin Dixon, Marketing Associate

This summer I was able to travel with family and friends to Brooklyn New York. I enjoyed great food and the vibrant city culture.




We hope you had a safe and fun summer as well!
