The Team: Meet Emilie + Ariadne

• TEAM •

Emilie R. Goldman, CFA, CFP®

Emilie R. Goldman, CFA, CFP®, is the founder of Tamarind Financial Planning. Before launching Tamarind Financial Planning in 2010, Emilie held leadership roles in three Bay Area investment management firms.

In a career “aha-moment,” Emilie realized that helping families define and achieve their most cherished financial life goals, was much more personally satisfying – and impactful – than the investment-focused roles she held previously.

Emilie holds an MBA from the Haas School of Business at UC Berkeley and received her undergraduate degree from the University of Denver. She is trained in Financial Life Planning through Money Quotient.

Emilie lives in San Carlos with her husband and teenage son with frequent visits from her two older daughters.  When she is not working, Emilie loves running and hiking on the many trails of the Bay Area, exploring the US on road trips, spending time with her extended family in Colorado, Oregon and Israel, cooking, and reading.

Ariadne Horstman, CFP®, RLP®

Ariadne founded Appreciate Finance in 2015 and merged her business with Tamarind Financial Planning in 2022.

Her goals are to help individuals and families realize personal goals and dreams through comprehensive financial planning and investment management. She has practiced as a CFP® since 2008, advising families and individuals. Prior to that, she worked in the tech industry in Silicon Valley after a career in consulting and conference production in France.

She is a Registered Life Planner® with the Kinder Institute, practicing life planning with clients to ensure their finances are fully supportive of their objectives as they move toward realizing them. Having lived in France, India and the UK, she has international skills to bring to those with cross border situations.

Ariadne is based in Palo Alto with her husband and also spends time at other locations such as Oxford, UK. They are now empty nesters, as their two children pursue studies.

A graduate of Smith College, she completed her financial planning coursework at UC Santa Cruz. She loves the outdoors, yoga, Pilates, reading, creative writing and meditation.
