Christine Nolan

Co-Founder, Financial Advisor

(702) 990-4334

Christine is licensed with insurance and two FINRA registrations, Series 7 and Series 66 (currently held at LPL Financial). She grew up in California, but landed in Las Vegas in 1999 after ‘Brave’ing the cold in Peoria, IL attending Bradley University and competing for their forensics team (they hold the most national titles than any other college academic or sports team in the nation). She graduated from University of Nevada, Las Vegas with an undergraduate degree in Business Communications, graduate certificates in New Venture Management and Public Management, a Master of Public Administration graduate degree, and is continuing with her PhD in Public Affairs.  She continues to embrace the community with her charitable endeavors, most notably as past board president of Chefs for Kids and the current Vice-Chair of the Nevada Council on Economic Education. Christine finds cooking to be an art, world travel a necessity (she married in Florence, Italy), believes family is the core of happiness and sadness, is joyfully married to her husband, Christopher, and is completely enamored (and fatigued) by her children, Morgan, Amelia and Declan.
