The Seacoast Human Resources Association (SHRA) is a non-partisan, non-sectarian, and non-profit organization dedicated to the career development of Human Resource professionals.

The Manchester Area Human Resources Association (MAHRA) was originally formed in 1954 by a small group of local professionals who were interested in sharing information and experiences about personnel issues.


As a Financial Advisor with Waddell & Reed, Tim Dabrieo’s mission is to develop a long-term relationship with each client based up on trust and confidentiality. His goal is to help people make educated decisions with their finances in order to work toward meeting their financial goals. Throughout our lives we face the competing financial demands of our immediate needs and expenses and the costs of our future goals.

As a financial adviser Tim can help you:

  • Analyze net worth and cash flow to help find sources of surplus income
  • Develop strategies to save for secondary education, second home, vacations or other purpose unique to your situation
  • Create a picture of your retirement plan based on your timeline, risk tolerance and lifestyle and work with you to help achieve this goal
  • Manage the risk that may prevent you from achieving your financial goal due to unforeseen life events
  • Analyze potential tax consequences associated with your investments and financial planning decisions
  • Create your estate plan to help ensure your wealth is passed efficiently and cost effectively to the people you wish and in the time frame you desire
