Stephen M. Leavitt, MS, CFP®



I have more than 30 years of experience in financial planning, with a particular interest in retirement planning. I first earned a BS in engineering from Northeastern University. But my passion for financial planning and my desire to help people compelled me to become a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER practitioner in 1989. After another 4 years of intensive study, I earned a Master of Science with a concentration in retirement planning in 2000.

I’m as passionate as ever about my work. And I’m grateful for all my clients, including the large set of long-term clients for whom I believe I’ve played a pivotal role in helping them achieve their financial dreams.

Away from work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two sons, two dogs, and extended family and friends. I love reading and will happily swap book ideas with you. In addition, I follow the local sports teams here in Newburyport and in our Greater Boston region, and participate in outdoor activities — especially ocean sports.

I also support a number of charities, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Margot Levin Loomis

Administrative Assistant


I support day-to day operations, which includes conducting research and running reports, to help keep the office running smoothly. I earned a BS in Journalism with a focus on Economics from the University of Maryland.

When I’m not at work, I write publicity for a non-profit folk music venue, the New Moon Coffeehouse, and I spend one day a week volunteering for the local Habitat for Humanity affiliate. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, watching the Celtics, and going to live music or theatre. My guilty pleasure is dark chocolate which I satisfy by making truffles, feel free to ask me about them.
