Our services cover all areas of financial management, from investment and retirement planning to estate conservation and legacy planning. We specialize in helping our clients develop a comprehensive, cohesive financial strategy that fits their unique needs and enables them to meet both short and long-term objectives.

Christina Giglio

Christina Giglio, Operations Manager


Christina started with Charleton Financial in November 2012. She is a native of Rochester and lives in West Henrietta with her husband, Matt. Christina attended SUNY at New Paltz as a visual arts major and loved the area so much that she lived there for about 10 years. Her background in the financial services industry has a strong compliance component, but what she truly loves about her work is the variety. Compliance, which means making sure we are in line with all industry rules and regulations, and day to day supervision of the other administrative staff, are the significant aspects of her position, but she also helps out with special projects, some client service needs, and in general she keeps the office going.

She and her husband have made a hobby out of loving to eat! They experiment with different foods and cooking styles at home and love to try new restaurants. In recent years they've dabbled a bit in gardening to fuel the food hobby; most of their success has been with herbs. Their home is on a pond alive with wildlife. They've identified a number of different bird species, but their favorite by far is the elegant blue heron. They enjoy sitting on the patio and watching him gracefully stroll along the shore looking for fish.

You will find Christina immensely knowledgeable in all aspects of Charleton Financial's operations, and can use her as a resource for anything ranging from simply scheduling an appointment to any level of problem resolution.
