Merrill is proud of our advisors who’ve received recognition from industry publications. We believe they are setting the standard for exemplary client service.
Our team focuses on working with affluent individuals and families to address wealth management needs that extend beyond retirement income planning. We often assist these clients with financial strategies designed to preserve their wealth and pass it on to future generations, or to leave a charitable legacy. Gathering detailed financial and demographic information is critical to developing a successful goals-based investment approach. Our goal is to deliver customized service that surpasses client expectations. Every member of our experienced team strives to be easily accessible and readily responsive to client service requests.
Kayla joined Merrill in 2014, after graduating with a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of St. Thomas in Minnesota. Kayla focuses on providing a holistic and customized wealth management approach. This method starts with discussing a client’s current and future goals, and assessing how the team’s capabilities could support them. Additionally, Kayla leads the team’s education program for 401(k) clients, through on-site and virtual seminars that are provided on a monthly basis.
Kayla prides herself on her ability to listen to and help clients verbalize their ideas about their financial situations, preferences and goals. She is an energetic problem solver who finds ways to address the needs of clients using the strengths of various resources of the firm. Kayla lives in Evanston and enjoys traveling and cooking.
