Dollars & Cents (and Sense) E15
This week’s show is all about female wall smashers in male dominated industries! Carla chats with Jackie Yoder of Wilde Wealth Management Group about what it’s like to love math, earning respect in an office full of guys, setting great examples for their kids, giving back, and helping to bring more women into the fold.
Wilde Wealth Management Group provides comprehensive retirement, investment, real estate, insurance, legal and tax planning services all under one roof.
A fee-based firm with in-house Senior Financial Advisors, Certified Financial Planners, Certified Public Accountants, attorneys, and mortgage and insurance specialists all working together toward clients’ diverse goals, the firm has been recognized by Forbes and has been named to Barron’s “List of Top 1,200 Advisors” annually for 14 years, most recently ranking No. 2 in Arizona.
Currently, Wilde Wealth Management Group has several offices across Arizona located in Scottsdale, Glendale, Mesa, Tempe, Sedona, Tucson, and Payson as well as affiliates and partners in Indiana, California and New Mexico.
Jaclyn Yoder, 36, is COO of Wilde Wealth Management Group, which provides retirement, investment, real estate, insurance, legal and tax planning services under one roof.
Yoder took on the executive position in March 2020, days before COVID-19 gripped the nation at which time she also became the pandemic director as well. (Prior, she worked as an advisor for Edward Jones since 2017). Resolute, Yoder helped grow the business from $1.2 billion in 2019 to $2.83 today.
The single mother of two also expanded the brand, which at the time had offices in Scottsdale, Tempe and Glendale, bringing on offices in Sedona, Tucson and Payson as well as additional partners statewide and in New Mexico.
Yoder also doubled the size of the Scottsdale headquarters to accommodate their growth and opened a wholly new office in California. Yoder serves as chair of Wilde for Arizona, the firm’s community outreach arm, overseeing all volunteer efforts, sponsorships and fundraising.
Outside of Wilde, Yoder sits on the board of Chrysalis and was previously a mentor at New Pathways for Youth. Yoder has both a bachelor’s degree in Accounting and MBA. She also holds her Life and Health License, Series 7 and Series 66 registrations.

About Our Host
Carla Magee’s background is designed with the investor in mind. After obtaining her finance degree from the University of Washington in Seattle, she worked for large corporations like Boeing and Microsoft. With a critical eye and flair for analytics, she was able to shave millions in lost profits, managing cross-functional teams by utilizing her Green Belt in Six Sigma and Masters Certification in Project Management.

Being an investor herself, she came into real estate as an investment & multifamily property specialist, effectively applying her education & skillset. Carla excels in helping investors make sound decisions for their financial goals, in real estate negotiations, and takes deep pride in educating homebuyers and sellers.
