After starting his career as a teacher and a coach, Stephen took his passion for educating others and adapted it to the financial services industry. He enjoys working with business owners, professionals, families, and individuals who believe that wealth is a tool that needs to be managed wisely to produce the best results.

After working as a representative of an insurance company and an advisor of a national investment brokerage firm, Stephen launched his own registered investment advisory firm, Wise Wealth LLC. The slogan he developed as he began remains the cornerstone of his firm and its advisors: First Wisdom, Then Wealth.

He believes in listening to his clients and creating customized financial plans based on their unique needs and goals.

He and his team of advisors seek to serve their clients’ best interests and gauge their success only on if their clients feel successful.
