With more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry, I have been helping to improve clients' long-term financial success and change lives for over 15 years as a fee-only advisor and planner at Schwallier Wealth Management. I offer guidance in the form of financial planning, on-going investment advice and management, and insight on all things affecting life and finances. My goal is that clients are better off for having chosen me, specifically, and I strive to become an indispensable resource in helping clients attain financial peace. History: After working as an advisor at Morgan Stanley and AG Edwards and becoming disenchanted with the standard of care to clients and advisors at large wirehouse firms, I struck out on my own for clients and became a fee-only advisor foregoing any commission-based business and working for my clients directly without the conflict of interest of working for a captive brokerage firm. I am constantly reading, learning, and improving my skill-set for clients. This includes proudly becoming a member of NAPFA as a fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professional. Personal: I reside in Tallmadge Township with my wife, Val, and my two children. I enjoy spending time with my family, playing basketball as long as my body allows, and practicing yoga.

Our goal is that clients are better off for having met us, specifically, and we want to become an indispensable resource in helping clients attain financial peace.
