Myah Moore Irick
Myah Moore Irick joined Merrill Private Wealth Management in January 2020. She specializes in providing wealth planning strategies to successful executives, endowments and foundations, individuals and their families, and a growing list of professional athletes.
Myah possesses a deep understanding of the psychology of wealth: the challenges that executives, individuals, seasoned professionals and even up-and-coming athletes face when making decisions about their financial futures. With this knowledge, Myah is able to help her clients identify what they really want their money to do for their lives, families and communities – and then create a wealth plan for achieving that.
For Myah, being a great advisor means going above and beyond the numbers. It means being a resourceful collaborator and trusted advisor, who digs deep into how their clients approach saving, spending and sustaining wealth. It means coming up with creative solutions to help them achieve their unique ambitions. And it means utilizing the vast resources of her firm to maximize their financial potential, provide for their loved ones and help them give back to their communities.
Myah is devoted to giving back in her own life. While she spends much of her free time with her husband and three children, she also sits on a number of boards and committees that promote access to higher education for women and girls. She serves as a strategic partner to UNICEF and Girls, Inc. Her experience as Miss Oregon (with the Miss Universe Organization) in 2003 inspired her ongoing commitment to promoting educational opportunities for women.
Previous to joining Merrill, Myah was an Executive Director at JPMorgan Private Bank for 7 years. She has also served as a relationship manager at PNC Wealth Management, and held several senior roles at Columbia University, where she advised families on philanthropy and estate planning solutions.
Myah received a B.A. from Lewis & Clark College, an M.A. from Columbia University, and a joint international M.B.A. with honors from Brown University and Instituto de Empresa.
