Our Staff

Kathy Clark
Director of Corporate Operations

Having a passion to help others achieve their goals, Kathy has found her place at HMC Partners. “Whether working with our clients and teaching them to view their accounts online or to use social media, or working with our staff as I mentor them and teach them new things, I love to see the look on someone’s face when they learn something new or do something on their own for the first time. I like to create systems that make large seemingly overwhelming tasks, into easy manageable pieces.”

A passion for sports developed into a colorful and interesting career for Kathy Clark, including time with the Detroit Lions, and an introduction to the field of marketing. The decision to leave behind the Michigan cold and head for sunny North Carolina provided Kathy with an introduction to insurance and financial services.

Kathy has been working in marketing since 1995, and has been marketing in the financial industry since 2000. She is Series 7 and 63 securities registered with LPL Financial and holds her North Carolina Life and Health Insurance License. She is a graduate of Virginia Tech where she holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Management. Kathy is an LPL Financial Registered Administrative Associate and a 2014 graduate of the Leadership Greensboro program.

When not in the office, Kathy loves to run and was inspired to start a running group for women in the Greensboro area called the Breathless Babes, which now has more than 110 members. Regular training prepares her for races including two marathons, more than 12 half marathons, and numerous 10ks and 5ks.

Kathy resides in Greensboro with her husband Dan, who is a Sergeant Major with more than 29 years in the United States Marine Corps Reserve and who, in his civilian career, works as a VP of IT Infrastructure for a Winston-Salem based Insurance company. The couple enjoys time at the coast fishing and with their Weimaraner, Steeler.



Elisabeth Sanders

Director of Client Service

Elisabeth Sanders has always found the financial industry, its complex details, intricacies and moving parts to be fascinating. “This career is both fulfilling and meaningful. I am able to pass on and share with clients the things I have learned being in the financial industry, and in doing so, I can help them pursue their various goals and objectives.”

Lizz is the newest member to join the HMC family. She has three years of experience as a registered associate, and more than ten years of customer service experience. Elisabeth is Series 7 securities registered through LPL Financial. She also holds her Series 66 securities registration through LPL Financial and Independent Advisor Alliance. She previously worked as a paralegal for three and a half years in Charlotte, North Carolina before moving back to the triad. She is a LPL Financial Registered Administrative Associate.

Lizz grew up in Kernersville, North Carolina and graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in English. Her customer service experience began in college as an employee of the campus UREC center. She later transitioned to various other opportunities, such as a flight attendant and assisting clients for a beverage manufacturing company in Woodstock, GA. She later obtained her paralegal certification at Guilford College and worked for an insurance defense law firm.

Currently, Lizz is living in downtown Winston Salem with her miniature dachshund, Bramble, who is a frequent visitor to the HMC office! She enjoys spending time with my family and friends, working out, reading, and playing the piano.

Kelly Wagner
Client Concierge

“The most meaningful thing about my job is the ability to work with our clients. I love being in contact with them and watching their lives change and grow through different circumstances. Each person is different and as the weeks go on, they not only become clients, but also friends.”

While working in a local community bank, Kelly Fisher became hooked on the financial industry and decided to advance her career. Meeting John and Gib and beginning work at HMC Partners in an administrative role cemented that desire to become more involved in the industry.

Kelly joined HMC Partners with five years of customer service experience in the banking industry. Her expertise in banking and outgoing personality make her a great asset to HMC Partners where she serves as the Client Concierge and assists with client service needs and works to plan events and seminars. Kelly holds her North Carolina Life and Health Insurance License.

Kelly enjoys the outdoors where she is often found either camping or in the mountains. She looks forward to baseball season and dance recitals with her children, appreciates Sunday church, and the company of her fiancé and their combined family.
