Barbara Silva

Director of Operations

Upon returning to work after the birth of her daughter in 2010, Barbara started her career as an Administrative Assistant with Northeast Financial Network. Barbara’s passion for the industry led her to work in many capacities for the greater firm. Before joining Mike's team as his executive assistant, she was the assistant Vice President of the New Business department and built a strong relationship with Mike and his clients. 

With her dedication, experience, and the client's best interest in mind, Barbara was a two time recipient of Northeast Financial Network’s Diamond Award for outstanding service. This prestigious award recognizes the firm’s top staff for their hard work, positive attitude, and value they provide to their team, advisors, clients, and company as a whole.

As her career advanced, Barbara was looking to gain further knowledge and experience, so she thought it would be a natural fit to join Mike's team as they share the same philosophies. In 2019, she transitioned from her firm role to directly work as Mike’s executive assistant. Over the years working as part of Mike’s team, she has gained a passion for helping people achieve financial success. With the launch of Schwartz Planning Group, Barbara continues to expand her capabilities, continuing to support Mike and the team, as well as becoming the SPG’s office manager and COO.

Outside of the office, Barbara enjoys attending her daughter’s soccer games, watching her son’s band play at local venues, and tackling home renovations. She is also an avid lover of all animals.
