Carmella Nodine received a bachelor’s degree in December of 2002 from West Texas A&M University in General Business with an emphasis in accounting, management and marketing. In 2004, she joined her first financial planning firm which inspired her to become an independent financial advisor. She believes that her years of experience in various positions along with continued education provides an ideal foundation for her current role.
During Carmella’s journey, she quickly realized who needs her services the most. Because of her own personal situation, her goal is to help other professionals who are pension recipients such as educators and governmental employees. She knows the importance of understanding the benefits and how to implement a plan that complements pension income in retirement. Growing up with an entrepreneurial father and business owner, she learned a well-designed employer-sponsored retirement plan can play a key role in tax efficiency for successful business owners as well as provide a great benefit for all employees. Also, her caring and loving heart has driven her passion for helping families with children with special needs or disabilities. She wants families to have peace of mind that when they can no longer care for their loved one, a plan is in place for the continuation of quality care. She takes pride knowing no matter what unique situation presents itself she will strive to find the best solution.
Carmella is married to Coach Quincy Nodine and has two sons, Zander and Zalen. Away from the business, she enjoys spending time with her family and friends. She actively serves at her church, Pinnacle Community Church. She loves to spread happiness by way of leading her weekly Zumba classes. She also enjoys organizing fundraisers to benefit local charities.
