Ambia Peoples began working in the financial services area after graduating magna cum laude from Old Dominion University in Virginia. She was designated a Professional Financial Planner by ODU's College of Business and Public Administration and was also previously designated a Certified Financial Planner by the International Board of Certified Financial Planners (IBCFP). She was also a member of the Million Dollar Round Table and was previously a licensed Investment Advisor with her firm. She continued in that role for nearly 15 years until military change of station orders necessitated the family's move to Maryland.
During this hiatus from her financial planning activities, she enjoyed her role as a stay-at-home, supported her husband during his multiple command tours, and ran a successful alpaca ranching operation at their home farm before her family received military orders to relocate to the St. Augustine, Florida area in 2012.
Ambia returned to the financial services industry in 2015 as a transition specialist working nationally with large brokerage firms in repositioning newly recruited brokers and providing assistance to their clients. She joined North Florida Financial in 2016 in partnership with Robert Markwalter II. Together with their combined expertise of over 40 years, through a unique process called The Living Balance Sheet, they are helping people build more wealth now and in retirement while minimizing taxes and better protecting their families.
