Berni Stevens’ Bio
About Berni Stevens, PhD, CDFA®
FOUNDER & CEO
I am fortunate to have found a profession that makes me feel good about what I accomplish and the impact I have on people’s lives. You might not think that divorce mediation and advising would bring that kind of satisfaction, but for me it’s been a perfect fit.
After a career in business (Booz Allen Hamilton, Omnicom), finance (Morgan Stanley), and academia (Villanova University, Butler University), I founded TruNorth Divorce Solutions in 2017 to provide couples and individuals with better divorce outcomes. Driven by my experiences as a child of divorce and then my own litigious divorce, I passionately believe that a divorce does not have to have a lasting negative impact on one’s life or their children’s lives.
I am a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® and a trained mediator and divorce coach. As such, I am uniquely able to address my clients’ legal, financial, and emotional needs during divorce, putting them on the path for a healthy and untroubled future.
I received my bachelor’s degree in finance, summa cum laude, and a MBA from the University of Maryland, also a PhD in business from Indiana University.
