Jenny Erdmann Logan

Owner, Certified Financial Planner®, California-licensed attorney

Chisholm Financial Planning & Investments was founded by Jenny Logan, Attorney and Certified Financial Planner®. Jenny Logan advises clients in areas of personal financial planning and portfolio management. Inspired by the Cowboys who traveled the Chisholm Trail in search of financial rewards and a better life, she believes we too are pioneers of our own financial destiny. Through providing personal financial planning advice and online courses, Chisholm seeks to inform and educate clients and the public on straightforward and actionable financial planning tools and strategies.

After receiving her law degree from California Western School of Law Jenny practiced as an estate planning, business transaction, and tax attorney. Because of this experience, she views much of her financial planning from a legal paradigm; shaping her guidance on many of the financial issues routinely faced by clients. Throughout her career, Jenny has continued to be highly involved with the legal community by providing MCLE for attorney organizations. In addition, she is a trained legal and financial mediator and has assisted mediation companies and their clients on the financial complexities related to divorce.

Local involvement is an important component of Jenny’s life. During her time in Coronado, California she was heavily involved with the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society of San Diego, where she utilized her professional training to provide financial casework services for both active duty and retired military. Recently relocating to Sackets Harbor—a beautiful village on Lake Ontario, Jenny spends much of her time in her garden with her husband, chickens, and Lucy, the best dog in the world and Chisholm’s mascot.
