About Me

Hi, I'm Nicole Carson, Owner and Wealth Advisor of 2nd Story Wealth Planners.

As an Advisor for over twenty years, I have partnered with professionals and business owners to share their own money stories and design a personalized plan to help achieve their goals.

2nd Story Wealth Planners was created to provide an opportunity for everyday people (not just the 1%) to have access to quality and holistic financial planning. Many of us have not had access to partner with Financial Advisors and we are changing that one client at a time. I'm on a mission to make financial guidance and education available for all.

Prior to starting 2nd Story Wealth, I spent 10 years at Vanguard as a leader in the Ultra High Net Worth division working directly with advisors, clients, and business owners. In this role, I was responsible for managing client relationships from $5M-$1B in assets. I also worked at Lincoln Financial Group where I was responsible for partnering directly with advisors to grow and support their practices.

In the start of my career, I worked for a local credit union as a Registered Representative and Advisor to assist clients in achieving their financial goals.

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Finance from DeSales University, and went on to earn my Masters in Business Administration at Holy Family University, graduating with Honors. I hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation. I also hold FINRA licenses Series 7, 63, 65, & 24. Some of my memberships include Financial Planning Association (FPA) and Association for African American Financial Advisors.

When I am not spending time with my amazing clients, I am spending quality time with husband, four kids, a very large family, and friends that are family.

To make Wealthtender free for readers, we earn a nominal monthly fee from financial advisors and firms in exchange for marketing services (including being featured on this profile page), subject to terms of use. This compensation creates a natural conflict of interest when we favor their promotion over others. Wealthtender is not a client of these advisors or firms. Testimonials may not be representative of other clients’ experiences and do not guarantee future performance or success.
