Alicia Figueroa:Alicia Figueroa is a financial planner dedicated to helping individuals become financially independent by creating good savings habits, protecting their assets, and achieving their goals of growing and transferring their wealth. Her goal is to make financial independence a reality for her clients. Alicia has been in the financial services industry for over 10 years, having worked in the wealth management divisions at Morgan Stanley and Citibank prior to joining MassMutual. She has an MBA from the acclaimed Wharton Business School at the University of Pennsylvania and a second master’s degree in international studies, also from the University of Pennsylvania.

C. Nick Lee:Nick has been in the financial services industry for close to a decade and prides himself on creating a holistic, client-focused experience.

In that capacity, his mission was twofold: understanding the dreams and values of each client, and implementing financial strategies to make their goals a reality. Today his practice has expanded to include financial planning for medical professionals. Nick’s educational background stems from a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) from the University of Miami, followed by an MBA from Nova Southeastern University and a highly concentrated, MSc in Finance from Florida International University – the trifecta of recognized South Florida colleges.
