Broker Check


Our founding partners represent over 45 years of experience providing for the financial and insurance needs of their clients and families.  Joan Lyons, Wendy Bowes, and Michael Barrett first met while advisors at MetLife. It was during this time that they forged friendships that proved to be the foundation for their future partnership. Through conducting joint work and utilizing each other’s individual areas of expertise, they developed a high level of trust and respect for the diligence and ethical standards that each displayed while working with their clients.

Although all three felt confident in the products Metlife offered, the financial industry was changing rapidly. The need to be able to provide holistic financial advice without any perceived conflicts of interest and maintain full autonomy of their business was more important than ever.  They decided it was time to pursue an environment that was more consistent with the needs of their practice. They embarked on an 18-month process of research and due diligence to ensure they made the right decision. Through this process they identified the independent financial advisor model as just the place for their practices.  By the middle of 2015 they came to a decision and launched Generations Asset Management


Our mission is to build trusting caring relationships with families and businesses in central Pennsylvania. Through honest and open dialogue, our team creates personalized solutions to help our clients achieve their financial goals through every stage of life.


As advisors, we commit ourselves to our clients’ financial goals as if they were our own. Our clients in return seek a committed relationship that is equally beneficial for both parties.

Our goal is to simplify the complexity that comes with managing multiple financial considerations. As your financial advocate, we fulfill your need for competent, objective financial guidance, allowing you more time to devote to business, family and your personal passions.

We proactively guide you in the financial decision-making process, answering your questions and providing the resources you and your family require to make educated decisions that will serve your best interests-not ours. We seek to address the concern and take the confusion out of the financial decision-making process, replacing it with the clarity and confidence you seek.

At Good Life Financial Advisors, we have access to independent research on the economy and the markets. The need to be unbiased and independent is greater than ever with increased changes in the economy and unsettling market volatility. This access allows us the freedom to offer clients impartial strategies to manage the challenges of wealth accumulation and management. As a group of independent advisors we have no proprietary investment offerings or products allowing us to ensure the advice you receive is objective.

We bring experience and insight to organizing all aspects of your financial life. We encourage compatibility with the other professional advisers in your life such as your tax advisors and attorneys to help ensure we are offering compatible advice to work toward your goals and needs.
