Meet the Team: Veronica Cabral

Welcome to our current edition of “Meet the Team.” We sat down with Veronica Cabral, Director of Operations and Chief Compliance Officer at Warren Street, to learn more about her role, hobbies, and goals for the future. Join us in getting to know Veronica below!

In your role as Director of Operations and Chief Compliance Officer, how do you assist Warren Street’s clients?

I manage all our business processes and workflows on the backend, so our associates and advisors have a streamlined process when serving our clients. 

In my new role as Chief Compliance Officer, I also keep an eye on everything compliance-related to make sure we have the right systems and programs in place to protect our clients. 

How does Warren Street align with your personal values?

At Warren Street, we have a really big emphasis on putting clients’ best interests first and always being transparent and honest. I try to lead a similar life personally with my family and friends. I like to try to put others first and consider how my actions affect them. I’m also really big on being open, honest, and transparent. I carry those values back and forth between work and my personal life. 

What do you love most about working at Warren Street?

What I love most is the flexibility I’ve had with my role. What I mean by that is at a really large corporation, I might have gotten boxed into a specific role. Because we are a smaller firm, I’ve been able to grow and take on many responsibilities quickly. I really appreciate the flexibility and trust that Cary and Blake have placed in me to explore and not just stay comfortable.

What is your biggest accomplishment thus far?

Professionally, taking on the role of Chief Compliance Officer. It’s definitely a lot of responsibility, but I’m thankful for the trust that’s been placed in me.

Personally, my biggest accomplishment has been my husband and I buying our house!

Who or what motivates you?

I was born in Mexico, so my parents came here when I was two. Knowing that they left what was super comfortable for them back home to come here to fight for a better life motivates me to honor their sacrifice. I want to make sure that we are always getting better with every generation. My family and husband both motivate me every day to be my best for them. 

What are your aspirations?

Professionally, I’d love to stay at Warren Street and continue to grow with the company. 

Personally, I hope to build on my Vee Make Cents brand, expanding the platform and formalizing educational programs that empower young women to get more comfortable with money. 

What are three fun facts about you?

1. I was born in Mexico, and Spanish was my first language. I’m still fluent. I didn’t start learning English until kindergarten, and I wasn’t immersed in an English classroom until third grade.

2. I played water polo in high school. (I started swimming first, which is normally done in reverse order!) I was one of the smallest girls on the team, but I tried to keep up.

3. My husband and I just spent six months on a new home build. We currently have no decor, so all suggestions are welcome!

Get to Know our Founding Partner, Cary Facer!

Ever wonder where the “Warren” in “Warren Street” came from? It’s actually the middle name of Founding Partner Cary Facer (“Street” is the last name of Blake, our other founding partner). 


Cary has long been a face of the firm, but there’s much more to him than his “Founding Partner and Wealth Advisor” title alone. Get to know Cary as we discuss everything from motivations to challenges in the interview below! And be sure to check out our other team member introductions.

Why did you decide to start Warren Street?

I started Warren Street Wealth Advisors out of frustration. After three years at a large financial firm, I realized how heavily these firms push their own products on clients, creating a major conflict of interest. I went independent so I could have the creative control needed to find financial solutions that truly helped my clients.

How does Warren Street align with your personal values? 

Open, honest, transparent. Nothing to hide. I’ve always lived my life that way, and I strive to foster that environment every day at Warren Street. Clients should be able to share openly and honestly what’s on their hearts and minds, so we can all build a culture of trust in the work we do together.

What makes Warren Street unique?

Being independent not only allows us to do what we truly believe is in clients’ best interest, but it also allows creative flexibility. We do much more than investing and financial planning for our clients. We host March Market Madness, we send our clients a pound of See’s chocolates every holiday, and we just introduced Warren the Whale, our mascot! Whales are a symbol of transformation, reminding clients they have the power to transform their lives in extraordinary ways. Plus, he makes for a good stress ball to squeeze in difficult moments. 

What do you love most about working at Warren Street?

I love seeing our team thrive. There’s not a better feeling than hearing that a team member’s success at work has impacted their personal life for the better.

What is your biggest accomplishment thus far?

I’d have to say starting Warren Street with Blake and finding success in a quick six years. It hasn’t all been roses, but it’s been real. Having a successful business partner is no different than having a successful marriage. It takes commitment, honesty, and a willingness to say difficult things. If you look at how successful our team is, it’s a sign as to the passion and trust we place in each other, and in them.

Who or what motivates you? 

My two kids. I have two boys, ages 9 and 8, and all I try to do is be a good role model for them and their peers. I coach just about anything I can for two reasons: (1) to spend quality time with them and (2) to help and mentor other kids who are struggling in life or need a healthy outlet. 

I also love motorsports and have gotten back into racing competitively. Everyone thinks they’re a good driver until they race. When I started… I was a terrible driver and made all kinds of mistakes. The weird part was, I enjoyed being terrible at it. It’s so humbling. At 40, I could easily stick to things I’m great at, but I enjoy grinding my way up through extremely difficult challenges. It’s one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done and I’m always motivated to be better. 

What are three fun facts about you?

  1. I started racing BMX when I was five years old. 
  2. Having been born into a vegetarian family, I didn’t eat meat for 39 years. I recently started eating meat and let me say, I’m busy making up for it. 
  3. I recently realized I can still run a five-minute mile (shoutout to my coaches at Hit the Mark Fitness)!

For more than 15 years, Cary has helped many retirees maximize their retirement. He has hosted over 130 retirement planning workshops to help more individuals secure a financial future for themselves. 

If you’re interested in meeting Cary in person, register here for an in-person event (including dinner!) or schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your financial goals. We look forward to hearing from you!

I hope to help make the client experience as seamless as possible. I strive to make myself readily available to clients as they navigate their journey to financial peace.

How does Warren Street align with your personal values? 

Warren Street seeks to educate clients on the importance of their personal finances. This company is about implementing solutions and offering sound financial advice to solve your problems. Educating clients first before setting a plan into action is key. Warren Street has extended their reach in educating a wider audience via their blog, Instagram, and YouTube videos.

Who inspires you?  

My mom is my biggest inspiration for so many reasons. Mostly because of her kindness, generosity, and dependability. Her continuous unconditional love and support have been invaluable.

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I enjoy journaling, crocheting, trying a new high-impact workout routine, taking my cat for his daily walk, and hanging out with family and friends.

What are three fun facts about you?

(1) The meal I most look forward to on the weekend is brunch.

(3) One thing on my bucket list is to go sky-diving.

As 2021 comes to an end, we thank you for your continued support. Please help us welcome Jessica with open arms!

Welcome Kirsten C. Cadden, CFP® to the Warren Street Team!

Warren Street Wealth Advisors welcomes a new face to our continually growing team. In the coming months, we will be using this space to make virtual introductions to our team members and the role they play in serving you. We first want to introduce you to the newest member of our team, Kirsten C. Cadden, CFP®, Associate Advisor.

Kirsten graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor of Science in Family Studies and from Kansas State University with a Master of Science in Personal Financial Planning. She also holds a graduate certificate in Financial Therapy from Kansas State University and is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™.

Please enjoy this interview narrative to give you a deeper understanding of who Kirsten is and how she hopes to serve you!

In your role as Associate Advisor, how do you assist Warren Street’s clients?

I assist the Lead Advisor in making sure we have the data we need to create the client’s financial plan and develop our recommendations for the client’s situation. I sit in on or conduct meetings, answer client questions, and provide another set of eyes to review everything alongside the Lead Advisor. 

What do you love most about financial planning?

I love helping clients find peace of mind and clarity. I love seeing them feel empowered by their financial choices.

What impact do you hope to make at Warren Street?

I hope to work closely with clients to determine what role finances play in achieving their goals and living an abundant life.

How does Warren Street align with your personal values? 

Warren Street Advisors act as fiduciaries, meaning that we don’t sell any products or receive commissions from any of the investments we recommend. The words “financial advisor” are thrown around too often by people with barely any qualifications who have something to sell. It is so important to me that when a client signs up for financial advising there is total transparency about what they are paying for and what motivates their advisor. Warren Street is all about financial planning, investment expertise, and client service – we are not salespeople.

Who inspires you?

I come from hardy pioneer and farmer ancestors. Their grit, integrity, faith, and hopeful optimism encompass everything I want to be.  

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

I love reading and writing, playing piano, and having fun with my husband and our crazy dog.

What are three fun facts about you?

(1) I was on my college women’s rugby team (I wasn’t good, but I did it).  

(2) I am an amateur seamstress – I have made myself skirts, dresses, tops, and pajama pants.  

(3) One of my happy places is horseback riding on my grandparents’ cattle farm.

As Warren Street continues to grow, we thank you for the trust you place in us as your advisors. Please help us give Kirsten a warm welcome to the team!
