Meet Nicole Gopoian Wirick, JD, CFP®
Financial planning with a personal touch.
One of Nicole's greatest joys is developing a relationship with her clients, who have become a meaningful part of her life. Nicole Gopoian Wirick, JD, CFP® founded Prosperity Wealth Strategies to help clients define and achieve prosperity.
Nicole believes that the building blocks of a successful advisory relationship include open communication and mutual understanding coupled with compassion and tenacity. Nicole earned her Juris Doctor, cum laude from Wayne State University and her Bachelor of Arts in Economics from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Nicole holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification.
After law school, Nicole started her career in a young leadership rotational program at a global financial services firm. During that program, she found her passion for financial planning and focused most of her rotations around that topic.
Nicole also served as a Vice President at a regional broker-dealer, where she was responsible for bringing financial planning to her region that had no previous exposure. She loved seeing how planning allowed advisors to bond with their clients and better understand their needs. When Nicole met her mentor, she was inspired to take a leap of faith and leave her comfortable corporate job to pursue her passion as a fee-only financial planner.
The fiduciary standard and planning-centric values resonated with Nicole. Prior to founding Prosperity Wealth Strategies, Nicole gained exposure to trust services at a bank trust company and deepened her study in tax. She has found that her legal and trust background has provided a valuable resource for clients.
"I want to educate my clients on the main building
blocks of their portfolios."

Do you want an investment advisor who provides personal service?
Consider working with a fee-only, fiduciary advisor who puts your best interest first. Your finances are one of the most important – yet private – parts of your life. It's not something you discuss openly with friends or family. Beginning a conversation about investments, wealth management, money and the future can be difficult. As your financial advisor, Nicole believes it's essential to do so with a personalized approach for each unique client. Understanding your goals is paramount to developing a well-coordinated financial plan. Nicole believes that portfolio management comes after your financial plan is developed because your plan should drive all investment decisions.
