Achieve Your Purpose

Welcome! I’m Jennifer K. Hicks, a Certified Financial Planner in Colorado Springs, Colorado. With over 2 decades of experience and clients in over 20 states, my team and I understand that your investing goals are as unique as you are.

As a single parent, I have experienced the challenges of some major life transitions.  College planning, retirement planning, estate planning and long term care are all valuable tools in your quest for financial security and freedom for you and your family.

No two investors are exactly alike.  That is why we offer a wide selection of investment and risk management services including retirement planning, military retirement/benefit coordination, professional money management, income distribution plans, and insurance products. 

The landscape of financial products and services is vast and ever-expanding. We can help you navigate that landscape by coordinating all of your investment needs.

We want to help you Achieve Your Purpose!
