Ellyn Schaefer, CPA

Financial Advisor


I have been a CPA for over 35 years and an Investment Advisor for over 9 years, working with The Legend Group for the last 31 years. The Legend Group was a perfect fit for me. I have known many of the other Advisors for more than 10 years, some more than 30 years, and appreciate their honesty, integrity, and knowledge of the industry.

My mission is to help people and businesses achieve their financial goals by combining sound investment advice with my knowledge and experience to help keep their taxes as low as possible. I am also very passionate about providing services and seminars that help educate and empower women to be independent investors through our Women's Advisory Group at Legend.



I have been married to my husband Glenn for over 30 years and have three adult children, Jessica, William, and Rachel. I love taking long walks along the canal, biking, yoga, and skiing. Ski trips and 5K’s with my family keep me happy.
