Erin Wood, CFP®, CRPC®

Vice President, Wealth Planning, Carson Group


Erin Wood began her career in personal finance promptly after college as a financial planner in Milwaukee, Wis. She developed a passion for helping people at a relatively young age, and the fulfillment of seeing a family achieve their financial goals led Erin to eventually own her own financial planning business in her late 20s. Being a local girl at heart, Erin sold her practice and moved back to Omaha so she could be closer to family, and so she could help people from the community that shaped who she is.

She became a Private Client Adviser for a regional firm where she was quickly asked to create and lead her own financial planning team. The success in this venture, along with her continued passion for helping others, led Erin to her career with Carson.

Erin graduated from Northwest Missouri State University in 2002 with a B.S. in Communications and Finance. She holds a Certified Financial Planner designation, as well as the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor designation.
