The personal relationships that develop with clients are the most rewarding aspect of what I do.
As a NAPFA-Registered, fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® professional, I am required to be a fiduciary to clients—always working in their best interests. I work together with my clients to make their lives better.
With more than 25 years of experience in the financial services industry, I have been helping to improve clients' long-term financial success and change lives with Schwallier Wealth Management for over 10 years. My professional background includes work as an actuarial consultant and institutional pension product manager at Lincoln Financial Group, a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley, and a fee-only investment advisor at Schwallier Wealth Management LLC.
I reside in Tallmadge Township with my wife, Val, and my three children. I enjoy spending time and playing cards and board games with my large extended family, playing basketball as long as my body allows, and practicing yoga.
