Meet Kobi Worling

Kobi has been an accounting professional in Albuquerque and the surrounding areas since 1999 with her focus being on Business planning, budgeting, and forecasting.

Her focus is to help educate small business owners, Retirees, and pre-retirees on all retirement options. The goal isn’t just to get our clients to retirement but to get them through retirement. 

To Kobi, family comes first and is not only the foundation of her life but the biggest motivator of everything she does. She is the proud wife of, Chris Worling, who is also her business partner, and a momma to four amazing kids. Her oldest, Kaleigh, is currently a UNM LOBO, Christian, is a high school senior, Kameron, is a high school freshman, and, Connor, is in the 5th grade.

Her goal is to help as many people plan and set up their future goals so that their next chapter of life is as easy and enjoyable as possible. She’s able to do this by working with leading companies that offer safe and innovative retirement strategies that include options to continue to grow retirement accounts even after retirement.
