Anina De Tommaso, FPQP™

Financial Planning Specialist


My job as a paraplanner is all about client support and resolving issues to help clients reach their financial goals. I assist the financial planning team in any way I can. Whether it is moving funds, inputting portfolio data, or answering questions, it gives me great satisfaction knowing that my assignments are done efficiently and accurately. I joined The Planning Center’s Chicago office in September of 2013 and received my Financial Paraplanner Qualified Professional designation in 2015. I intend to continue learning and growing in my position so I can be even better at my job of customer support.

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.” [Mark Twain]

I spend a fair share of my spare time with family and friends. Being fit and healthy is very important to me too, so I try to live a healthy lifestyle. My dog, Dolce, is a ball of energy and she keeps me busy on a daily basis. She is a Chihuahua mix that I adopted from the Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago. I enjoy taking her on walks all around the city, particularly downtown where I can explore all of the new things the city has to offer. Discovering new beaches and traveling to exotic locations are among my other favorite pursuits.
