In June of 2007, Institutional Investor News cited Lana as one of 20 “Rising Stars of Wealth Management.” Later that year, after spending the majority of her career as a partner with a nationally recognized independent investment advisory firm, Lana joined Baird, an affiliation that more closely aligned the team with the sophisticated resources her clients have come to expect. In 2014, Lana formed her own team at Baird, The Hock Group, with a focus on comprehensive wealth management for the modern family, small business retirement plans services, and divorce financial planning. Lana has been recognized in the business community for her success and achievements; she has represented her peers as an authority in media interviews; and she has tirelessly served her clients and her community both professionally and personally.
Lana is a graduate of Kansas State University, where she earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration. She is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM professional, a Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC), a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst (CDFA), and a Qualified Plan Financial Consultant (QPFC). She is a member of the Institute of Divorce Financial Analysts, the National Association of Plan Advisors, the Kansas State University Alumni Association, and the American Mensa Society.
In 2002, Lana was named to the Arizona Business Journal’s “Forty Under 40” for business success and community involvement. Her past involvement as chairwoman and board member of the Boys & Girls Club of the East Valley has twice earned her the National Service to Youth Award from Boys & Girls Clubs of America. She currently sits on the board of Villa Musica, a non-profit music school inspiring people of all ages to explore the joy and life-long value of music. She is particularly interested and supportive of Musical BiographiesTM an encore program, developed through a partnership with the UCSD Shiley-Marcos Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. This program is designed to bring together people with Alzheimer’s disease, their care-givers and family in a unique multi-sensorial experience that centers around music and memory. Lana also enjoys playing golf, which allows her to support many local charities through tournament play as well as her league participation with Golf for Cause in Arizona and the LPGA Amateur Golf Association in both Phoenix, Arizona and San Diego, California. She is also a strong advocate for animal welfare, supporting rescue organizations (including Baja Animal Sanctuary), pet-related small businesses, The FACE Foundation, a San Diego based organization that has partnered with veterinarians to provide financial grants for animal owners who are unable to afford the cost of their pet’s emergency or critical care, and local chapters of the American Veterinary Medical Association. She and her husband, Andrew Trujillo, spend time in both Scottsdale, AZ and San Diego, CA, along with their newest canine companion, Sasha Banks, a rescued American Staffordshire Terrier. Sasha Baja Banks (named after a WWE female wrestler) joined the family after Lana and Andrew lost their long-time companion Joan Jett during the COVID-19 Pandemic in September 2020. They are all three avid sports fans and proud Denver Broncos season ticket holders.
