Nancy Ellis is passionate about creating a platform developed by women for women, giving them a voice in the male dominated insurance and financial services industry. In 2015, that vision led to the founding of Women Empowering Financial Independence (WEFI), an initiative of Life & Annuity Masters, Inc. Prior to establishing WEFI, Nancy incorporated Life & Annuity Masters, Inc. in 2003, a brokerage agency owned and managed by women. Nancy and David Ellis are licensed financial professionals and business partners since 1989.

The goal of Women Empowering Financial Independence (WEFI), is to build a network of empowered and financially independent women through community, network and education. By empowering women to gain financial independence, we empower families, communities, and economies. WEFI takes on the role of providing women the necessary education and knowledge, so they can be mentors and leaders of financial independence. Through WEFI, we can create communities where female advisors can help families be better prepared for retirement, better prepared for financial uncertainties, and better prepared to protect their loved ones from financial disasters. Women Empowering Financial Independence instills confidence and enables people to make better decisions. By helping their clients build stronger financial plans with insurance coverage, Women Empowering Financial Independence will help many Americans remove the fears they have about their lack of financial freedom and independence. WEFI will be the advocate of financial empowerment for women across the state and our nation.

WEFI is currently seeking additional Founding Partners, locally and nationally, to teach women how to create effective financial solutions. As Founding Partners, this team will work in conjunction with Leticia Santiago, Director of Operations of Life & Annuity Masters, who will lead our WEFI Founding Partners Team, providing guidance and strategizing on how to best lead this initiative to become a nationally recognized firm and to someday become a household brand.

The Foundering Partners Team will support new WEFI members in several key areas:
• Promote brand consistency and formulate key messages that distinguish WEFI as the premier female advisory firm in the financial services industry.
• Participate in coordinating a series of WEFI events created by women, for women and sponsored and taught by women
• Create and lead the WEFI team’s national vision and recommend speakers, non-profit organizations and mentors to new WEFI members
