Todd Parker CFP®, WMCP®, RICP®, CLU®, AEP®
Wealth Management Advisor
Tenacious, highly experienced, and well respected are some of the words used to describe Todd Parker. A career-changer of a very non-traditional nature, Todd built a career at Archer Daniels Midland Company in Decatur, IL for seven years before pursuing higher education.
After receiving his degree from the University of Illinois, he started his career at Northwestern Mutual which quickly transformed into something remarkable. After a decade of experience as an industry trailblazer, Todd realized one of the career dreams closest to his heart in founding the Northwestern Mutual Decatur Office, which has already made a profound, positive impact on the greater Macon County area. Todd and his family are now Florida residents since 2021, but are still passionate about their deep roots in Decatur and have been enjoying life together in both Florida and Illinois. Todd hopes to continue to collaborate with hard working professionals in both the Decatur and Sarasota area as they are making some of the most intimidating decisions of their lives… Are they going to retire? When are they going to retire? And, how are they going to retire? When Todd isn’t working, you can usually find him on the golf course or traveling with Kristie checking off another concert on his list. They have three children, Natalie, Alex, and Anna and a granddaughter they adore, Grace.

Spending time with her husband, Garrett, and daughters, Sofia and Audrey, centers her life outside of the office. They sneak in as much beach time as they can while keeping up with a busy soccer schedule. In those rare moments of free time, she loves baking, reading, and catching up with friends.
