Carissa Ritchey


Carissa is a long-time resident of Manhattan Beach, having raised two daughters and maintaining a successful small baking business here in the South Bay. She decided to re-enter an office atmosphere after her youngest started college and, because she enjoyed the feel of small business entrepreneurship, she found a welcome opportunity here at Bridge Senior Financial Services. Manhattan Tart Baking Company taught Carissa all aspects of operating a small business; of particular interest to her was making her clients feel valued and important by not only providing them with baked goods, but by offering superlative customer connection, communication and service. This is exactly what makes Carissa a great fit for Bridge Senior Financial Services, since customer service, communication and connection are equally important to us! Carissa is a client liaison and offers administrative support—as well as occasional baked goods—to the office.



"After a very short period of time, I was convinced that using Cynthia for our personal accounting and finances was more than the right decision...I continue to be completely satisfied with her honesty and professionalism and would highly recommend her."
—Lance Harris

"Cindy has helped me with my ex husband's bankruptcy, my divorce, and my business finances. She has been a lifesaver."
—Gwen Vigon
