Maggie is the client services manager for Pathfinder Wealth Consulting. She facilitates financial transactions for new and existing clients, including processing account documentation, transfer of assets, rollovers, and general account maintenance.

Maggie started her career in financial services 14 years ago in Chicago, Illinois as an executive administrative assistant for Global Forex Trading and client liaison for ODL Securities, Inc. Later, she became the new accounts administrator for Daniels Trading, an independent futures brokerage firm. After relocating to Wilmington in 2012, Maggie transitioned to a specialty in wealth management as a senior client solutions specialist at PNC Bank before joining Pathfinder in October 2016. Maggie has always enjoyed assisting clients, working in a team environment, word puns, organization, and meeting new people.

Maggie received her BS in politics and government with an emphasis in legal studies from Illinois State University. She, along with her husband, Phil, spend much of their time chasing their two young sons, Thomas and Matthew. The Ernst family enjoys the coastal lifestyle by spending time at Topsail beach with their kids and dog, Luke. In her “free” time, Maggie enjoys a good slice of pizza, standup comedy, anything Chicago, physical fitness, as well as art and design.
