She is tasked with assisting plan sponsors with fiduciary best practices in order to remain compliant with all legislative and regulatory matters with the Department of Labor (DOL), Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and other government entities.

Brooks has also practiced law at multinational law firms and the nation’s largest accounting firms. She holds a juris doctor degree from the Seattle University School of Law.
According to Nick Della Vedova, president of NFP Retirement, the hire is consistent with the firm’s mission of adding resources that will help clients manage an increasingly complex compliance landscape. He cited Brooks’ experience in ERISA compliance as a tremendous asset to the team. Brooks describes NFP Retirement’s culture as client-centric, calling it a clear differentiator.
