"With employee financial stress at record levels nationwide, it's clear that a truly comprehensive corporate wellness program must address financial wellness, in addition to physical and mental wellness. SUM180's powerfully simple approach to financial wellness has the potential to be a game changer - by allowing employees to feel both safe to engage and empowered to act."
Jodie’s focus on the SUM180 team is developing and executing integrated and strategic social media experiences designed to build the SUM180 community. With a strong creative background in graphic design and video production, she also ideates and creates visually compelling content for use on social platforms.

Prior to joining SUM180, Jodie worked in public relations for MSLGROUP in Chicago and TogoRun in London.

Jodie graduated magna cum laude from DePaul University with a B.A. in Public Relations and Advertising.

"Every piece of content I create at SUM180 is made with the intention of helping people - I love that! Helping people gain clarity about their finances and make a change in their lives is incredibly rewarding."
As Co-founder and CEO of SUM180, Carla leads a team of financial experts, marketers and technologists who are rethinking financial planning services from the ground up. Carla started her career at Morgan Stanley & Co. in financial analysis and new product development, in the company’s New York, London and Geneva offices. She then co-founded a financial advisory and fund administration firm that was acquired by a Boston bank now owned by State Street Bank.

Carla was the founding CEO of Community Foundations of America, Inc., involving 115 community foundations nationwide. She also served as a senior administrator in the university health care industry focusing on strategy development and execution. She serves as CEO of IMC, SUM180’s major investor.

Carla graduated Phi Beta Kappa from the University of Michigan with a B.A. in economics and political science, and she holds an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago.

“Starting my career at Morgan Stanley gave me a deep grounding in finance, a discipline I've loved ever since. Now, at SUM180, we've developed a service that finally gets right many of the issues that, for too long, the industry has gotten wrong. I feel like I was training for this my whole life”
SUM180 Founder Stephen Reily lives to find marketplace gaps and opportunities for new consumer offerings. In 1998 he brought his legal background together with a passion for consumer marketing when he founded IMC Licensing, an agency that has developed new product strategies – and new products – for global companies like Kraft Foods, AT&T, S.C. Johnson, L’Oréal, Hilton and hundreds of other iconic brands. Frustrated with his own clients’ refusal to invest in some of their most profitable and loyal consumers (women 35+), Stephen launched a new product offering himself: Vibrant Nation, a digital agency and this vibrant demographic’s leading network of influencers. Listening to consumers complain about the financial advice industry led Stephen to create SUM180.

Stephen graduated from Yale College, summa cum laude, and from Stanford Law School, after which he clerked for Justice John Paul Stevens of the U.S. Supreme Court. He and his wife, historian Emily Bingham, have three children.

“To truly serve customers, the first thing we need to do is listen. Fortunately, social and digital media have given us better tools than ever to engage consumers directly, as partners. At SUM180, we put client feedback at the center of every aspect of our process - from strategy to product to marketing. Our abiding respect for each individual client has shaped SUM180 at every level.”
Nancy has 20 years of experience developing successful growth strategies for a broad range of clients across multiple sectors, including Discover Card, Allstate, DIRECTV, and the Cisco Foundation. Prior to joining SUM180, Nancy led operations and client services at Analytic Innovations, a company specializing in predictive modeling and customer behavior analytics. At Krumm & Associates, Nancy handled analysis and client services in support of customer marketing for Fortune 500 companies.

Nancy has spent her career as an “interpreter,” breaking down and organizing information from customers and the marketplace in a way that gets business and technically trained teams working together to design and launch new, better solutions. She also specializes in applying strategic leadership and analysis to bring ideas to fruition. For instance, as Senior Director of Research and Strategy at IMC, Nancy has brought market research and consumer insights to an understanding of clients’ brands, products, channels, and consumers, developing strategies that stretch them in new, revenue-producing ways.

Nancy graduated summa cum laude from Knox College, in Galesburg, Illinois, with dual degrees in economics and history. While at Knox she was elected into Phi Beta Kappa and published original research in her majors.

“I'm passionate about designing simple, elegant solutions to complex challenges. I love that SUM180 took on a really complex challenge with a totally fresh approach - one that put clients at the center of the discussion!”
Cara has been a writer and editor for such innovative media companies as Lucasfilm, Creative Publications, Classroom Connect, and CNET (now CBS Interactive).

Before joining SUM180 as its Director of Communications, Cara was Editor of VibrantNation.com, where she worked closely with the largest online community of women age 45+ to identify what this influential demographic needs and wants, across the full range of topics unique to this life stage. She was also Director of Communications for the marketing agency IMC, Vibrant Nation’s parent company, designing influencer marketing campaigns to enable brands and marketers to reach and engage this powerful purchasing demographic.

Cara received her M.A. in English from the University of California at Irvine and her B.A. from the Ateneo de Manila University in the Philippines.

“I'm excited about SUM180 because we collaborated with our clients to build something completely new, that now has the potential to make a meaningful difference in many lives. I'll be doing my best to continue channeling our community's ideas into a service that gets even simpler to use and more responsive over time.”

My challenge with SUM180 was to build a system intelligent enough to deliver financial advice for every client's situation - while still being cost-effective and simple to use. I love a good challenge!”
