Alicia graduated with a bachelor's degree in Financial Services from the University of Akron in 2012. At that time, she completed an internship with Northwestern Mutual and obtained her Life and Health insurance license.
After graduation, she worked as a financial advisor's assistant for three years, and still utilizes her license.
Advancing her education even further, Alicia earned a Master's in Finance from the University of Buffalo in 2016. During graduate studies, she worked for a wealth management firm – using her insurance knowledge to help create financial plans for clients.
After her graduate work, Alicia moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she currently works at J.P. Morgan Chase in Asset Management. She eventually added Series 6 and 63 licenses to her resume. "The InVEST program was a great starting point for me," she says.
