When we started Ellerbrock-Norris Wealth Strategies, we were thinking bigger than simple access to capital markets. We feel, how you access and use the markets should be a decision based upon all the other variables in life. Our passion is helping our clients articulate how they want to live their life and showing them the path to get there.

I live in Omaha, but I grew up working on a farm in western Nebraska. When I was actively on the farm, it was hard, unprofitable work. We did it because we loved it. Even though the farm doesn’t exist anymore, it taught me money is an essential tool but true wealth is beyond money. This is the same belief I come to work with every day.

I am a Certified Exit Planning Advisor with a BS from theUniversity of Nebraska at Lincoln and I am currently pursuing the Certified Financial Planning designation. While away from the office, I love spending time with my wife, Ashley, and our two daughters.

Some of my earliest memories were tagging along with my dad on the golf course and I have continued to play over the years to work on improving my game. I have learned that playing golf takes skill but more importantly it takes patience. You cannot rush a game of golf and I believe that same concept is true for building wealth. The sooner a plan can be put in place to start working towards your goals, the sooner you can spend your precious time enjoying what is truly important to you.

I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (TM) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and a Master’s Degree in Management. When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, Eric, and our two daughters.
