Whether your career is just getting started or you have established a successful practice, it is important to protect your ability to generate income and live the lifestyle you have created if you become injured or ill. Disability income insurance helps you do just that, by replacing a portion of your income if a medical condition keeps you from working. Northwestern Mutual's disability income insurance for medical professionals is unique- it gives you more choice and control if you become partially or fully disabled.


Stacy Russo-Nichols' mission is to build everlasting relationships, help her clients attain financial security, and positively impact others lives. Stacy specializes in providing strategic, comprehensive advice to help successful medical professionals meet their financial goals.

Stacy works closely with the LSU Residency program, including Our Lady of the Lake, Ochsner Family Practice in Kenner, and Lafayette General talking about financial planning to educate and build relationships with medical students/residents for over 15 years.

From the minute you arrive in the office until the minute you go home at night, your patients count on you to provide expert care and guidance, to act in their best interests. Northwestern Mutual has long been recognized for providing innovative financial planning solutions and creating uniquely customized programs focused on our clients' goals, including insurance and investment products that can help
