Jennifer Hicks, CFP®

Pronouns: she/her

Wealth Manager & Employee Owner

After Jen’s volleyball career was cut short by injuries during her time as a Division I athlete, she was thrilled to find a new team at LNW. She was drawn to the leadership and values cultivated by LNW Managing Partner Deb Wetherby that remain today. She continues to use the drive for excellence that made her a successful athlete in pursuit of helping clients reach the goals that matter most to them and their loved ones.

Jen began her career with internships at AG Edwards and a CPA firm, and these experiences were useful when she stepped into an operations associate role. Soon after, she began to work directly with clients and, after three years, she became an investment associate. Jen was promoted to wealth manager in 2015. She believes the best way to provide value is to think holistically, and her experiences in operations and investment planning are useful every day in her client interactions.

Things work out best for those who make the best of the way things work out.
