Kent has played an advisory role throughout his entire life. As a young adult, he was consistently called upon by the family and friends to provide council and direction in important decisions. This led to his first job as a realtor, where Kent assisted families in transitioning their homes. He later went on to meet and marry Bonnie, and made a career switch to banking. Kent’s background in real estate became an asset to his clients as he was able to navigate through the credit process with them while preserving their cash flow and lifestyle.
Kent received his formal education at Hampden-Sydney College. He later pursued his Securities and Insurance licenses and moved into holistic financial planning in the wealth division of the bank. Having acquired over 14 years’ worth of experience in the financial arena, Kent was led down the path of providing independent financial counsel to both individuals and families. Kent is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and is passionate about providing clear and concise long term strategies which works toward giving his clients peace and clarity about the decisions they make.
When Kent isn’t at the office, he is spending time with his wife and three children, ages 4 to 10. Together they appreciate the outdoors and exploring as they bike and travel together. Additionally, Kent enjoys flying as well as spending time on his motorcycle. Kent is also actively involved in his local church, WS1st Assembly, where he taught Dave Ramsey’s “Financial Peace University”* and currently leads worship for the grade school youth.
