About Fulcrum Wealth Advisors, LLC

Fulcrum Wealth Advisors was founded on integrity and trust, in order to meet the needs of sophisticated individuals, families, business owners, and organizations who seek more from their financial advisor than what conventional financial services firms offer. We began this business in 2013 as a commitment to protect our clients from unnecessary fees, costs, and conflicts of interest, which are the mainstay of traditional "Big-Box" financial institutions. Fulcrum Wealth Advisors is owned by the partners and has no outside shareholders or corporate parent. Thus, we strive to be free from the conflicts of interest that arise when a traditional firm needs to service the interests of its shareholders ahead of the interests of its clients. Our combined 60+ years of experience within such enterprises compelled us to offer a different kind of experience, one that puts people before profits, and planning before product.

Eric wants to live in a world filled with people who are at financial peace, unburdened by the anxiety that comes with trying to figure out how to never go broke. He also wants to live in a world where markets only go up, people never become chronically ill, and emergencies never occur. Unfortunately, that world doesn't exist. As a financial advisor and planner with more than 20 years of experience, he's worked with clients as young as 1 and as old as 93. He's seen clients' toddlers graduate from college, attended many retirement parties, and managed to navigate through some of the most tumultuous markets years in the history of our nation. That look in his eye is the look of someone who's seen it all but is always looking to learn more and pass that knowledge on. When he's not helping families of special needs children and adults figure out how to make their money last two lifetimes, you'll find him spending time with his patient and big-hearted wife, Heather, and their two wonderful children. His oldest is autistic (and amazing) and that has been a driving force behind his goal to be a significant long-term resource for other families that want to know that (a) its going to be okay, (b) they aren't alone, and (c) people are here to help. Eric knows first-hand how hard it is to plan for two lifetimes, let alone one.
