Laura Carrera Warnock, CPFA, AIF, C(k)P

Qualified Plan Consultant/Private Wealth Management

Laura has always been interested in assisting business owners and individuals with plans for their future. When a person's financial world is in order, they are free to do what they do best, run their business and enjoy their families and friends.

She started as a Financial Consultant with Smith Barney, then moved to Wells Fargo after a few years. After growing and gaining some experience she went independent in 2007. She specializes in Business and Personal Financial Planning, including Qualified Retirement Plans, Executive Benefits, Asset Management, Retirement Planning, and Insurance.

She was born in California, but grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. She enjoys traveling, golfing, hiking, cycling, skiing, coaching my boys in youth lacrosse, and supporting the activities that have their interest. She values spending time with family and friends. One of the highlights of her younger life was receiving an athletic scholarship for Women's Volleyball to both USC and BYU. The experiences and world travel were truly rewarding. Since then, she has loved owning her own business and raising her fabulous boys.

Laura is excited about this next chapter working with the group at Granite Canyon Wealth.
