Cavner Resigns from BancorpSouth Following Stalking Plea

MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Nadia Cavner, Springfield financial advisor and political fundraiser, has resigned from BancorpSouth following a stalking plea earlier this month.

In a letter sent to the media Friday afternoon, Cavner, 53, announced plans to open her own firm, the Nadia Cavner Group. She says she resigned her position with BancorpSouth as of Friday morning, April 26.

Earlier this month, Cavner pleaded guilty to one count of violating the federal interstate stalking statute. The U.S. Attorney says Cavner "traveled from Springfield, Mo., to Memphis with the intent to injure, harass, or intimidate her daughter's former boyfriend and his new girlfriend" in 2011.

Cavner's daughter was attending the University of Memphis and dating a fellow student of whom her mother did not approve.

In the letter Friday, a spokesperson for Cavner said the new firm will be open May 6 at 2659 E. Normandy Ste. 108 directly behind Walgreens.

"Nadia is proud to be a member of the Springfield community and appreciates the trust instilled in her by her many clients," writes Sheri Hawkins with 2balance, LLC. "It is because of their support that her firm is now a dream come true."

Cavner will be sentenced in August.
