Patrick Golden



Patrick began his career in financial services with First Eastern Bank in the late seventies.

He joined Thomson McKinnon Securities in 1986. Patrick worked side by side with his father, Charles, for 15 years. Charles, a 45 year veteran of investment and financial services in Wilkes-Barre, PA, retired in 2001.

In 2004, Patrick was joined by his son, Corey, a CFP and Managing Director of Golden Wealth Management, continuing the tradition of father-son mentorship.

“Having the opportunity to work in partnership with both my father and son has been a remarkable joy. I have an abiding appreciation of the many memories of clients and colleague relationships,” Patrick says.

Patrick looks forward to continuing serving our clients and our community, providing sound counseling, investment choices, and personalized service.

When not working to assist clients and building relationships in the community, Patrick enjoys spending time with his wife, Ann Marie, their four children and seven grandchildren.

Lisa Foote



Lisa started her journey in financial services answering phones and sorting mail. Slowly learning the ins and out of Operations, she soon transitioned to greater responsibilities, becoming well versed in cashiering, new accounts and order room procedures while assisting Branch Managers and Operations Managers in the day to day running of each office she has been a part of.

Lisa has built a solid reputation of being hard working, dependable and, above all, making sure your first impression is a positive one.

In most brokerage offices, Operations associates work in what is commonly referred to as “The Cage”, named so because you are usually separated from the rest of the office and are welcoming visitors and clients through a glass partition. The atmosphere at Golden Wealth Management is nothing like the sterile, cubed off office buildings that Lisa has worked in over the years. There are no cages and no closed door offices, just a grand old home with beautiful woodwork and comfortable meeting spaces to welcome our clients and visitors.

Lisa lives in Mountain Top with her husband Rob. They spend their time hiking, remodeling and spoiling their pets, Rex, Nova and Rooney.

A 19-year veteran of three Wall Street firms, Joseph brings to Golden Wealth Management his expertise of psychology, client development and portfolio management.
