Who Is Achieve Retirement?

The Simple Truth Behind Our Practice
Honestly, we got tired of advisors labeling clients by numbers, ghosting their clients after the first month they sign on, and lacking any innovation in the past decade to help improve their client’s goals. In 2005, we said enough was enough and brought together some amazing individuals to create Achieve Retirement! Together we have work diligently to help make sure our clients never have to experience the “Old Financial Advisor” ways again.

Our Staff

When I’m not working you can find me close to a soccer field playing the game, coaching or watching my favorite team. Born in England, I moved to America in 1990 to attend university. After graduation I started my career in the financial services industry ultimately evolving my passion and expertise into corporate retirement plans and private wealth management with the founding Achieve Retirement in 2005. My wife Kiffaney and I are blessed with three beautiful kids, three cats and a loving dog.
Patterson McKinlay
I live in Denver Colorado with my husband and four of our ten kids. I enjoy spending time with my grandchildren, rollerblading and exploring photography when I’m not quilting or working with clients. I served on the planning committee for the Lupus Foundation for many years and volunteered at the 9 Health Fair for 10+ years. My family does annual fundraising for the American Heart Association and Children’s Hospital in honor of my son Leevi who had open heart surgery at age 6.
Cyndie Hodges
Executive Relationship Manager
I am a Colorado native born and raised in Littleton. I graduated from Colorado State University (go Rams!) and currently live in Lakewood to be as close to the mountains as possible. My husband and I have two vibrant young daughters. Some of my favorite things to do as a family are camping, biking, golfing, skiing and traveling. I am passionate about helping others to save for retirement, nutrition and pushing myself to new limits at a local CrossFit gym. I work hard and play even harder!
Kim Patterson
Relationship Manager
If you are able to find me outside the office, I’m probably relaxing while scuba diving in the deep abyss, trying not to die while mountain biking down the Rocky Mountains, cheering on my local Colorado sports teams or tasting the newest restaurants in downtown Denver. I’m truly blessed to live in one of the greatest states surrounded by my friends and family.

Allie Miller
Participant Education Specialist
I have lived in Colorado all my life, so understandably I love being in the outdoors, getting fresh air and exercise. Some of the things I am passionate about is health and fitness as well as spending time with my family. I live with my fiancé and two dogs that are my world. We are looking forward to having children someday, but for now we are having a great time getting to know each other and exploring new places.
