Meet The Team
Welcome to Simply Paraplanner
Simply Paraplanner was started to show paraplanners they can have a choice when planning their life and career in the financial planning industry.
We are determined to help paraplanners create the work environment that fits their lifestyle. We want virtual paraplanners to have more control over their schedules, tasks and work from anywhere.
We serve those who are career changers, stay at home parents, military spouses and digital nomads. The perks of being a virtual paraplanner are that you can now fast track your career and become your own boss.
The best part is we are helping advisors cut cost and all this counts as CFP experience.WORK WITH US
I'm Alex Hopkin, a virtual paraplanner, outdoor enthusiast, military spouse, mom to three small boys and founder of Simply Paraplanner. I am an AFC® and CFP® professional. I know first-hand the struggles of entering the financial planning industry on your own terms and finding a true work/life balance - that’s why I created a space to help others find flexible, remote positions within financial planning. Flexibility is key. As a military family, we have called Japan, Oklahoma, and now Hawaii home. I love exploring our new home and you will often find me out on the water between surfing, sailing, kayaking, and snorkeling.
I joined Simply Paraplanner in September of 2017. In addition to my work with Simply Paraplanner, I am also a virtual financial planning analyst for Geometric Wealth Advisors. I have a degree in Personal Financial Planning from Texas Tech University and hold the CFP® designation. I currently live in Denver, Colorado. In my spare time, I enjoy being with my family and friends, hiking, camping, road trips, or just hanging around a bonfire or out by the pool.
I joined the Simply Paraplanner team in July of 2018. In addition to my work with SP, I also own Taskmasters, a company that provides Virtual Paraplanning and Daily Money Management services. I have a Masters in Financial Planning and am studying to sit for the CFP exam. I live in central Minnesota with my husband and 4 children. I love spending quality time with my family and friends, road trips, stand-up comedy, and music.
I joined Simply Paraplanner in December of 2017 shortly after realizing the succession plan I was promised would no longer be a reality. In addition to my work with Simply Paraplanner, I run my own paraplanning business virtually, serving three advisors across the country and also serve as the Chief Operations Officer for a RIA based in New York. I currently live in Madison, WI. When it’s not freezing cold outside, I enjoy spending time on the lakes participating in kayaking and boating, or giving back to the community as a member of the local non-profit, Wake the World.
