Meet the Team

Supported by the global resources of Merrill, our team is comprised of talented and experienced individuals committed to building strong client relationships based on trust and personalized service.

Where do we begin? It starts with you.

At Merrill Lynch Wealth Management, your financial advisor focuses on the things you care about most- family, goals and priorities - even as they change over the years.

Understanding Your Life


Life is an ever-evolving journey filled with an array of personal, professional, and financial decisions. From building a business to raising a family and beyond, the adventures you experience define who you are and the happiness you create. We believe that throughout these major life events a key factor impacting success is how strategically you approach your financial life. Often, people have great goals but fail to build a realistic financial path to attain them.

At the Niceley-Mills Wealth Management Group, we believe complexity and a lack of preparation should never keep you from the life you desire. So, our priority is to provide diligent processes, personalized service and experienced support for goals-based wealth management through any life stage. Regardless of whether you’re preparing for retirement, transitioning into a new life stage as a widow(er) or divorcee, or experiencing another major event, we can apply our deep planning experience to help you proactively prepare for the future while living for today.

Focus On Individuals, Families and Small Businesses

We believe that financial success can be achieved when you’re able to make investment-related decisions and trade-offs that can help you reach personally meaningful goals. Whether you’re planning your retirement, saving to buy a home or funding a child’s education, the process begins by getting to know you and how you feel about the following:

  • Health: Managing healthcare expenses, now and in the future
  • Home: Upsizing, downsizing, remodeling or buying a vacation home
  • Family: Taking care of your family and other people in your life
  • Leisure: Spending your free time in meaningful ways
  • Giving: Volunteering, mentoring others and giving to charities
  • Work: Working in retirement, selling or starting a business
  • Finance: Bringing it all together and defining your financial goals

Success will be measured by the amount of progress you are making toward reaching your goals, making thoughtfully considered adjustments as events and conditions warrant.

Receive Lifelong, Personalized Guidance

Your financial life spans decades and continues forward with future generations. Once you become a client, we work hard every step of the way to help you find clarity in your financial life—for the rest of your life. Who you are and the goals and priorities you care about matter greatly to our team. Not only do we listen closely to you and genuinely care for your wellbeing, but we also build our support to last a lifetime.

Our personalized support offers you wealth management that:

  • Helps remove complexity from your daily financial decisions.
  • Reflects your unique goals, no matter if they’re for yourself, your family or a business.
  • Grows with you and evolves with your needs through every new life event and generation.

Prepare for the Known and Unknown

While we can prepare in life for certain benchmarks, we can’t always anticipate everything that comes our way personally—or financially. Our team understands the fine balance this uncertainty can play in your wealth management. Whether you oversee a foundation or just finished raising a family, you will always experience new challenges. We can help you proactively prepare for the known and unknown and strategically pursue the opportunities available to you along the way.

From the very start of our relationship, we work closely with you to:

  • Understand your current financial circumstances and how these details are impacting your goals.
  • How you define “success” presently and in the future.
  • What goals you hope to achieve in your lifetime.

Build Diligent Processes Into Your Wealth Management

We believe planning is crucial. We also believe that diligence is just as important. Someone can identify a path toward your goals, but unless you’re diligently working toward those goals and refining the strategies that get you there, you’ll be unable to make real progress.

As your disciplined guides, we’ll help you:

  • Create a strategic roadmap built directly on your short and long-term goals.
  • Review your progress toward your goals on a regular schedule.
  • Refine your strategies as changes occur in your life.


We believe the best financial approach is the one that helps you pursue your goals. That's why, from the start, we talk about your aspirations and encourage you to ask questions about issues that matter most to you. Calculating how to manage future health care expenses? College on the horizon? Considering the sale of a business or purchase of a home? Preparing to pass your wealth to future generations? It all starts with a plan intended to help you manage, grow, and preserve your wealth today, while also considering the impact it can have for years to come. With access to the investment insights of Merrill and banking solutions from Bank of America, we will work with you to develop an approach designed to help address your financial needs.


Every relationship begins with a conversation, helping you identify and prioritize which goals matter most to you. Whether it's transferring wealth to the next generation, customizing your financial approach to help you pursue your passions, or providing advice and guidance to help you stay informed, we start by listening to learn more about you and your family.

Your approach to investing

Drawing upon research in the field of behavioral finance, Merrill developed the Investment Personality Assessment to help us get to know you better as an investor and potentially help you refine your own investing preferences. By gaining a deeper understanding of how you think and feel about investing through this assessment, we can customize the financial approach we develop together to help you pursue what matters most to you. Our Investment Personality Assessment is one of the ways to help us get to know you - to understand your goals and priorities. These questions will help us provide you with additional insights and resources.


Merrill’s process is designed to help deliver a customized, comprehensive experience to assist you not only in wealth accumulation and preservation, but in areas that go beyond investments. Providing you with access to the investment insights of Merrill, trust and fiduciary services from Bank of America Private Bank, and the banking and lending solutions of Bank of America offers a way to help you manage all of the pieces of your financial life. Working one-on-one with a Merrill advisor means you have a single point of contact to help you with potential strategies for transferring wealth to the younger generation.
