40 Under Forty: Julianne Dahrooge

Erika Sidor
At Crompton Collective in Worcester are 40 Under Forty winners (from left) Heather Belair, Julianne Dahrooge, Robert Fecteau and Kevin G. Johnson.

In 2007, Dahrooge started her practice to bring compassion and understanding to financial planning, and co-founded Chan & Dahrooge in 2014 to help clients prepare for retirement and protect family and business assets. She is a political involvement leader in the New York Life's Boston office, traveling to Washington, D.C. to meet with legislators and providing testimony in Massachusetts on financial regulation.

Dahrooge and her husband, Aaron, foster dogs through Broken Tail Rescue, Inc. finding families for more than 80 dogs in the last six years. This summer, she returned from a five-week backpacking trip through Europe.

How do you define success? We should have well-rounded lives, including spending meaningful time with our families, being charitable in our communities and taking care of our health.
