Thank you for taking the time to stop by to learn about who we are and how we may be able to help you. As the President of Peabody Wealth Advisors, I am proud of the hard work and effort our team members bring to our clients each and every day. We are passionate about providing a superior client experience along with independent, objective and professional financial advice to our clients. 

Helping others and creative problem solving have always been my motivation and are what led me to the financial planning world over 20 years ago. As for my credentials, I am a proud graduate of North Adams State College (now Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts) with a B.S in Business Administration with concentrations in Finance and Management. I hold FINRA Series 7, 63 and 65 securities licenses with LPL Financial. I also hold the Accredited Investment Fiduciary® and Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor designations. In addition, I am a Massachusetts Licensed Insurance Adviser as well as a Licensed Insurance Agent.

I am forever grateful to my parents for helping provide me the building blocks of success as a financial planner. I credit my mom with instilling in me a strong financial background, fiscal discipline and the conservative strategy of “preparing for a rainy day”. While my mom demonstrated that disciplined savings and investing grows wealth, my dad modeled the values of work ethic and sacrifice in order to reach both personal and professional goals. My dad also taught me to not take myself too seriously and to instill humor into my life. 

Despite my unwavering commitment to the financial services industry, given the chance, I would own a waterfront bar and grill on the white sand beaches of Florida, where I could capture the essence of myself - my passion for family, fun, fishing, travel and music under the backdrop of a perfect sunset. I can think of no better way to enjoy a weekend than taking a road trip with my wife and friends - which is indicative of my determination to live life to the fullest. 

We are passionate about giving back to the local communities that help support Peabody Wealth Advisors. I currently serve on the finance committees of the Northeast ARC and the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce, where I served as Chairman of the Board of Directors in 2018-2019. I also donate my time to support many local initiatives such as the Young Entrepreneurs Academy (Yea!) Peabody, Northeast Arc and North Shore Community Action Programs (NSCAP). These opportunities provide me the chance to share my expertise and insight in the service of others.

As a CFP®, I specialize in financial planning and have worked in the financial services industry since 1997. My professional background includes working for firms like Merrill Lynch, Edward Jones, Stoddard Financial and Peabody Wealth Advisors. Driven to help individuals, families, business owners and not for profits pursue their financial goals through a goals-based comprehensive planning approach, I dedicate myself to educating clients while getting to know them to understand what is important to them.

I hold my Certificate in Financial Planning from Boston University and have a B.S. in Political Science from Salem State College. I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, as well as a Licensed Life, Accident & Health Insurance Agent. I also hold Series 7, 63 and 66 Registrations with LPL.

During my off-hours, I enjoy reading, cooking, fishing, coaching youth sports and sharing time outdoors with my family enjoying all that New England has to offer. Speaking of New England, I count the region among my gifts in life, thanks to its mountains, beaches and history. An avid reader and advocate of education, I enjoy coaching his kids and could talk for hours about my family.

My parents led by example and taught me from a young age about the value of helping others as much and as often as you can. Bottom line: always practice generosity. Practicing what I preach about generosity, I was appointed to Peabody’s Community Development Authority in 2017 by Peabody Mayor Ted Bettencourt and serve on the Board of Directors for the Peabody Area Chamber of Commerce, Board of Overseers at Salem State University, Board of Directors for Citizens Inn, and volunteer my time as a Peabody Youth Soccer and Lacrosse Coach.

Like many before me, I entered the financial services industry out of genuine curiosity, love for people and a desire to help others. One of the highlights of being a financial planner is the ability to guide individuals through relationship-based planning. As such, I focus on discovering what is important to my clients and setting efficient goals, so they can concentrate on the things they love. Having grown up in a household run by two professors, I recognize the power of education and carry it into my practice. My goal is to provide a unique experience no matter where my clients are in their journey - from accumulating wealth to distributing and preserving assets, it’s important to determine what strategies are right for them. 

As a first-generation Russian immigrant, I’ve had a personal passion to become financially independent and empowered. In 2008, after earning my master’s degree from the University of Hartford, I set out to find a strategist role that would allow me to study people and organizations. Unfortunately, the Great Recession of 2009 did not allow me the opportunity to become a consultant. However, it did provide a welcoming entry into the world of financial services. I started out as a long-term care advisor, which followed several years providing banking and wealth management services until joining Peabody Wealth Advisors as an LPL financial planner. This allowed me to provide independent, objective advice to my clients and work directly for them instead of a large financial institution. I seized the opportunity, embraced it and began the hard work of increasing my expertise and building my practice. 

I currently hold Series 6, 7, 63 and 65 securities registrations with LPL Financial along with Life, Accident and Health Insurance licenses. I obtained my bachelor of arts degree from Westfield State University in 2004 and graduated with a Master’s in Organizational Leadership and Psychology in 2008 from the University of Hartford.

Outside of work, I am passionate about yoga and meditation. I am a certified yoga instructor and use mindfulness skills to build awareness and need for financial planning. I am also a member of Saint Nicholas Russian Orthodox Church in Salem, MA where I spend many of my Sundays and have the opportunity to speak Russian. I live with my husband, Christopher and our children, Sofia and Aleksei, in Beverly, MA.

E: lisa.pike@peabodywealthadvisors.com


I’ve worked within the financial services industry since 2007. I joined the team at Peabody Wealth Advisors with over 20 years of experience in client service and sales. In my role, my primary responsibility is to manage and enhance the overall client experience by providing a concierge level of service. I work closely with our advisors to ensure client needs are being met proactively and addressed in a timely manner. 

Some of the ways I help clients include convenient scheduling, simplified account establishment, setting up online account access, contribution/distribution of funds, updating accounts/beneficiaries, proactive service calls and doing research. I’m frequently making phone calls behind the scenes to free up our client’s time to solve issues quickly and accurately. 

When I’m not connecting closely with clients, I enjoy spending time with family and friends lakeside in New Hampshire, gardening, golfing, boating and riding motorcycles taking in new destinations and living life to the fullest.

I am looking forward to using my skills as an educator and experience with client interaction to enable the team of professionals at Peabody Wealth Advisors to continue to provide a personalized, high-quality experience to those seeking help with their financial goals and dreams.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, visiting breweries and eclectic restaurants, and enjoying the great outdoors with my husband, Mike. I’m especially passionate about attending and photographing live music events and traveling across the U.S. to follow my favorite bands, all while spending time with my fellow music-loving friends along the way!
