I was raised in Santa Paula, California, in the 70's and 80's with two siblings and loving parents who owned a small local business. In the late 80' and early 90's I attended and graduated from college with a degree in business administration. Shortly after graduation my father passed away unexpectedly and left my mom financially in despair. My dad was my rock. He was always there for me and I knew that whatever I did in my life, if I fell, he would be there for me. After he passed, I realized that it was all up to me to support myself and my mom. So that's when I decided to pursue a full-time career in financial services to help ensure that other families have a more certain financial future. Becoming a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional and specializing in retirement planning and widows has been very fulfilling for me and our firm and is my passion. I have been involved with or supported Care Givers, Goodwill, Food Share, The Boys & Girls Club of Ventura, Ventura Missionary Church, Santa Paula Animal Rescue (SPARC), and City Center. My wife Alissa and I have 2 children and I enjoy travel and tennis. This is a little bit about me. If you decide to work with Skeels & Fox Wealth Management, I look forward to learning more about you, your family, and your interests. Remember, "Don't Stop Believin" in your dreams and goals!
