The Team

Ali Barghelame 


Ali has lived and devoted his entire life to the Front Range area of Colorado. Born and raised in the Greeley/Fort Collins area (where his family remains) he attended the University of Denver for his undergraduate and graduate degrees. It was at the university gym where he met Jill, which provides further interesting insight into their relationship, and from there they now have two children: Izak and Nadia.

Looking at Ali’s business card is a great way to understand his areas of working alongside you. Naturally though, one might want to know what the designations mean: Ali has a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance, is a Certified Financial Planner, a Chartered Life (Insurance) Underwriter, a Chartered Financial Consultant, a Certified Family Business Specialist, a Retirement Income Certified Professional, and an Accredited Investment Fiduciary.

Since 2005, Ali has used this level of professionalism to closely work with individuals, families, and business owners in carrying out our vision: to help those in our lives to be well financially.

Ali is licensed to sell insurance in the following jurisdictions: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Kansas, Nebraska, North Carolina, Texas, and Washington and he is licensed to sell securities in the following jurisdictions: California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Minnesota, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. 


Byron Hurlbut

After studying a number of foreign languages, it seemed like a natural fit for Byron to study the language of finance. He now uses this knowledge to help clients translate financial information for their specific goals and lives. He joined Barghelame Wealth Advisors in May 2010 and has taken on more and more responsibility since. Please feel free to contact him with any questions or issues (if you have not done so already).

Byron is a graduate from Colorado College (which is in Colorado Springs, Colorado) and has been in Colorado ever since; although he was not raised too far away – the Four Corners region of New Mexico. In addition to conversations about language – and by extension its culture and geography – Byron also enjoys discussions about horses, food & wine, Harry Potter, and anything humorous (a perk while working with Ali).


Alyssa Paretta

Alyssa joined Barghelame Wealth Advisors in February 2014 as a part-time employee and has worked her way to a full-time employee as of August 2014. She handles both the insurance business and the marketing. She enjoys having the opportunity to grow with the company while also learning new things every day. Please feel free to contact her if you have any questions. 

Alyssa graduated from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs with a Bachelor's degree in Business with an emphasis in Accounting and Marketing. During her time in school, she worked in retail and then transitioned to the financial industry. She grew up in the Minneapolis area and moved to Colorado Springs in middle school. She has always been a "Big City Girl" which is why she decided to pack up and move to Denver shortly after college. She enjoys finding new bands to listen to, going to shows, riding her bike around town and finding a good park in which to read a book, and Harry Potter (a perk while working with Byron).
