Director of Operations - Financial Planning & Investments
Alison Nichols has a multifaceted background, beginning with a bachelor's degree in English Literature and minor in Film Studies from Kennesaw State University. After graduation, Alison worked for a law firm before transitioning into an accounting position, and then became a Certified Professional Résumé Writer providing résumés to military veterans. A drive for a challenging new position in a client-focused career led her to LernerRouille Financial Strategies.
When she joined the practice in 2015, Alison knew very little about the financial services industry but was excited to learn and to build client relationships. "Working closely with clients has always been important to me," she states, "I really enjoy being able to assist people. That's what makes a career feel rewarding." Today she applies her strong communication background and organizational skills to handling client services, investment applications, and daily administrative tasks.
Alison felt immediately at home in the fast-paced environment at LernerRouille. She appreciates that every day will bring new challenges, and enjoys the creative problem-solving required to collaborate with team members and stay on top of a busy schedule. Her positive attitude and ambition to learn have contributed to her success on the LernerRouille team.
An Atlanta native and a Midtown resident, Alison enjoys spending her free time seeking out all of the culture and fun that the city has to offer - from taking in an outdoor festival, to trying out the latest restaurants, to tomahawking at a Braves game in the summer. Alison is also an avid reader and film lover.
