Wyndi, a north Florida native, has proudly called Tallahassee home for decades after falling in love with the canopy roads, rolling hills and family enriching environment. She attended Tallahassee Community College then transferred to Florida State University to complete her degree in Social Science. Not one for normalcy, Wyndi said "I do" at the top of the Stratosphere in Vegas to Woody, her husband and FSU's Voice of the Doak. Being raised on FSU football and basketball, Wyndi cheers on her Noles and her stadium announcer hubby at all the home games. She enjoys spending time with her family and pups. Wyndi and Woody are active members at their church, Canopy Roads Baptist, where they sing in the Praise and Worship Band and volunteer with their youth group and children's ministry.

Chris Revell

Chris Revell

Office 850-513-3331

Born in the capital city and raised to love the outdoors, Christopher is the very definition of a Tallahassee native and Southern gentleman. Being part of a large family plus deep family roots in law enforcement helped insure that Christopher learned the value of service, dedication and the ability to never meet a stranger. Whether thru mission trips to China, Albania and Honduras or leading worship with the FSU Fellowship of Christian Athletes or, even now, as he helps coach his younger siblings (affectionately known as "the triplets" ) and relishing the role as big brother, he has kept those traditions alive.  Christopher graduated with a degree in Social Science majoring in Economics and a minor in Religion from Florida State University in 2012. While there, he was able to “tackle” a little football and played for the Seminole football team as long snapper. After graduating, Chris expanded his time with FSU by trading in his cleats for a clipboard and worked as a graduate assistant coach.

After a successful college internship with Northwestern Mutual, Chris only further demonstrated his work ethic and tenacity. We consider ourselves fortunate that Christopher joined our firm in the spring of 2016.  Christopher holds a Florida license for Life and Health Insurance.  

How can Christopher assist you?

  • Review your current financial situation

  • Prepare and update financial plans

  • Develop strategies that help you reach your financial goals

  • Develop a Risk Management regiment that lines up with your goals
