Erin Wood, CFP®, CRPC®, FBS® is Senior Vice President of Financial Planning & Advanced Solutions at Carson Group. Erin began her career in personal finance after graduating college, where she practiced as a financial planner in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She developed a passion for helping people at a relatively young age, and the fulfillment of seeing a family achieve their financial goals is what led Erin to eventually own her own financial planning business in her late twenties. However, being a local girl at heart, Erin decided to sell her practice and move back to the Omaha area so she could be closer to her family, and so she could help people from the community that shaped who she is today. Her work in Omaha continued as a Private Client Advisor for a regional firm, where she was asked to create and lead her own financial planning team. That success, along with her continued passion for helping others, then led Erin to her career with Carson Group. Erin is a graduate of Northwest Missouri State University with a B.S. in communications and finance. She holds a Certified Financial Planner designation, as well as Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor and Financial Behavior Specialist designations. She received her M.S. in financial psychology and behavioral finance from Creighton University. When she's not at the office, you may not be able to find Erin. She enjoys traveling and exploring new cultures with her husband and two kids. She and her husband are SCUBA certified and have enjoyed underwater adventures on the Virgin Islands, Hawaii and St. Maarten.
