Jada Edwards grew up in Alabama and attended Auburn University where she received her degree in Chemical Engineering. After graduation, she worked in the chemical industry as a process engineer and later served as a production supervisor. In this role, she had the good fortune to participate in a successful plant start-up in Belgium, an experience she reflects on with great pride and satisfaction.
In considering her own strengths in planning and analysis, along with an eagerness to help others, Jada decided to pursue a second career in financial services. She began her career primarily serving the New Orleans area and later transitioned her practice to Gautier, Mississippi, where she continues to maintain her primary office. Fortunately, the move afforded her the opportunity to be closer to home and family, both of which she holds dear.
In August of 2020, with 18 years of experience, she decided to combine her practice with other like-minded professionals as a senior partner with Coastal Wealth Management Group, LLC, headquartered in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. In this role, Jada continues to serve clients as part of a unique service platform, focused on providing an enhanced goal-oriented experience to each and every client.
Jada’s industry credentials include Series 7, 6, 63, and 66. She is also credentialed as an Accredited Asset Management Specialist, awarded by the College of Financial Planning.
She is an active member of the Rotary Club of Gautier, having served as its President in 2012-2013, and continues to serve on its Board of Directors.
A self-described animal lover, Jada enjoys horseback riding and spending time with her many pets. She resides in Grand Bay, Alabama and also spends time away from her practice enjoying swimming, watching college football (War Eagle), and spending time with her family.
