About Nicole

I am a Wealth Management Advisor at TIAA with 15 years of financial services experience. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree at Northeastern Illinois University and completed Certified Financial Planner (CFP®) training at Loyola University.
Financial literacy has been a life-long pursuit of mine. I watched my own parents raise 3 kids with not much left to be invested for their retirement until they were in their 30s. I saw how they struggled to make up for that late start as I grew up and learned the value of investing from my father. He always told me “time is the one thing you can’t get back” and I apply that to both my investment philosophy and my personal time. I love my job because it allows me to engage with clients on both a technical and emotional level, which makes each day interesting and rewarding. I provide guidance to my clients based on TIAA’s long-term investment philosophy and help them realize their goals.
I live with my husband and our two young daughters in Glen Carbon, Illinois. We enjoy exploring the St. Louis area and driving our poor cat crazy.
