Senior Financial Advisor
As the founder and Senior Vice President – Investments of Decker Wealth Management Group, I work with successful families and business owners to develop and manage comprehensive wealth management plans. Using my 21 years of experience, I work with clients to understand their unique planning needs, evaluate their exposure to risk and develop solutions to guide their financial decision-making and help ensure their wealth lasts a lifetime and beyond.
The most valuable finance and business lessons I've ever learned didn't come from my finance degree or from the courses required for my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional designation. They came from growing up in the family business. My parents owned and operated a manufacturing and distribution company in Madison, Wisconsin, and growing up, my parents talked about the business and money at home – all the time. Looking back, my upbringing not only helped me navigate my financial life but also gave me the passion I have today to help others manage their life and money. I began my career with PaineWebber, the predecessor to UBS, in 1997 as an intern while in college. In 1998, I graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance and continued my career at PaineWebber, eventually serving as an Account Vice President with UBS Wealth Management in Phoenix. To provide my clients access to industry-leading technology, resources and investment platforms, I moved my practice to Wells Fargo Advisors in October of 2009.
I earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) practitioner designation from the College for Financial Planning in 2003.
Giving back to the community is important to me. I support the following organizations – The National MS Society, Amazing Aussies, Arizona Animal Welfare League, Mesa Thunderbird Lions Club, Habitat for Humanity and the One Step Wild Burro and Wild Mustang Rescue. When not in the office, I can be found enjoying time with my dogs, Blue, Finn and Mazie, riding my horses, Jolly and Sing, playing golf, camping and exploring the back roads of Arizona.
