A trusted financial advisor is essential for sound guidance and reliable support, especially in a continually changing and complex industry. Nicole brings those critical characteristics to our team with her more than 20 years of respected industry experience, along with a reputation of being a knowledgeable resource and champion for her clients. Nicole joined Ameriprise Financial, LLC in 2012 and later formed the Vibrant Wealth Management team in 2016 with fellow Financial Advisor, Ryan Murphy. In 2021, both Ryan and Nicole joined Crux Wealth Advisors at our Denver, CO office.
Nicole has always been inspired by helping others. She uses that motivation, along with her ability to clearly communicate the complexities of a financial plan into laymen’s terms, to help her clients envision their future by using tools and strategies to track their progress, prioritize goals, and help them achieve the right balance to “live for today and save for tomorrow.” She finds her career extremely gratifying because she works with her clients through various life stages, allowing her to develop meaningful, long-lasting relationships and, ultimately, trust, which Nicole feels is essential in a financial advisor.
Nicole has been recognized for her industry expertise. Previously, she held a Vice President position with Ameriprise Financial, LLC. Nicole earned a degree in Business Administration from Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver and a Certificate in Retirement Planning from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.

I’m a Colorado native, raised in Lakewood. My daughters are the light of my life, and I’m so proud of the women they are becoming. My oldest daughter, Kaeleigh, is in college and interested in a career in the medical field, and my youngest daughter, Madison, is in high school and very busy with her love of softball and soccer.
I enjoy keeping active both inside and outside of the office. In my free time, I love to spend time outdoors on hikes, walks with my dog, Chiquita, golfing, yoga, and my latest adventure, learning to snowboard! I also welcome any chance I get to travel and explore new places, whether they are local treasures or traveling abroad. I’m always up for an adventure to learn more and broaden my experiences.
