Emily Armstrong

Emily Armstrong

Financial Planning Associate
Office 720-963-6880

As a CU Leeds School of Business Alum (Go Buffs!), Emily started her career in tech and has worked for Fortune 500 Companies and Unicorn Start Ups. A strong desire to impact others' lives lead her to Northwestern Mutual, where she started her Financial Services Career in 2019. Emily's favorite part about working with clients in Financial Planning is the relationship building and the tremendous value that her team brings to clients. Emily holds Series 6, 63, and 65 securities licenses.

Personally, Emily is a Colorado Native and a lover of the finer things in life like good food and fashion. But don't let her fool you - she can also bomb down any mountain on her skis, loves football, and is up for (almost) any adventure. Fun fact - she has bungee jumped off of the highest bungee bridge in the world (Bloukrans Bridge, South Africa). Her ultimate dreams are to travel the world with her husband Ryan, make a lasting impact, and to be a mom someday. Outside of work, you can find her somewhere outside, building her health & wellness business, riding the Peloton (Cody Rigsby, anybody?), hanging out with friends & family, or nesting in her Anthropologie & Joanna Gaines-inspired home.

Emily is responsible for the marketing strategy, social media, and business operations of the firm. You can reach out to her to schdule or reschedule appointments with Kevin and Michael.

 

Most random job you've ever had: In college, I was a florist! I loved arranging flowers, but not so much the deliveries. I was always covered in flower pollen and water!

Favorite sports teams: CU Buffs and Denver Broncos

Something you can't live without: Laughter and a fresh manicure

Community Involvement: My husband and I lead a small group at our church, and I am involved in the Young Alumni Mentorship Program at the CU Leeds School of Business. I am passionate about helping college students navigate the difficulties of adulting, career hunting, getting through school, and more!

Michael Joseph Johnston

Financial Planning Associate
Office 720-963-6880

Originally from St. Louis, Missouri, Michael started his career in the oil & gas industry after graduating from Louisiana State University with a degree in Finance (Geaux Tigers!). Though he enjoyed the fast-paced environment of oil & gas, he desired a career where he could have a greater impact. Michael began his Finance career in 2018 and holds his Series 7 license. What Michael loves most about financial planning is that he gets to take clients through the planning process from A-Z and see the value we bring.

Michael loves everything Colorado has to offer, whether that is snowboarding, mountain biking, fishing, or camping. Along with outdoor adventures, he loves good whiskey, watching sports, and spending time with his family and friends. Fun fact - Michael is a triplet with his 2 brothers!

Michael is a Lead Advisor on our team, and also our Investment Specialist. You may reach out to him for any investment-related servicing items that you may have.

 

Most random job you've ever had: In high school, I drove trucks and loaded bags of ice into the gas station self-service stations. I was cold all the time!
