Joe joined Wealth Manager Group in 2020, bringing with him over 10 years of financial services experience. He began his career educating financial advisors on various investment strategies in products while he was working in the back office of a large broker-dealer. In 2013, he left to become a financial advisor. Joe has always enjoyed helping people and has had a passion for investing, financial markets and personal finance since a young age.

Nina is a strong believer that financial planning is an entitlement that everyone should have access to, not just a privilege. Having grown up in an immigrant family and as a first-generation American, she saw how important it was to set financial goals and plan for the unexpected. Nina experienced the constraints that came with lack of planning and having to pass up opportunities - both encounters that she hopes to help families and individuals avoid or plan for. Her passion for the industry stems from helping her family, which is why Nina wants to continue learning and improving her proficiency in the space to create opportunities for those in need of financial literacy and understanding.
Nina graduated from San Diego State University with her Bachelor’s degree in Economics and a minor in English. While in school, she interned at a Fortune 500 Financial Services firm and went on to join their financial advisor career development program. It was during this time that Nina received her Series 66 and 7 licenses and in 2020, joined WMG as a registered associate. She is currently studying to receive her CFP® designation.
When Nina is not in the office, she considers herself a rock climbing yogi who enjoys exploring new restaurants and micro-breweries. She is also the lucky dog mom of two, Kumo and Koda. Together, they enjoy taking weekend camping trips and hiking as many trails as possible.
