Due to his curiosity for solving financial puzzles coupled with his desire to help others, Scott joined the financial services industry in 1998. His passion to help others has grown stronger each year as a result of guiding clients through difficult and rewarding lifetime experiences.
Scott is the “G” in the ESG (Environmental, Social, & Governance) investing principles. He is a strong advocate for investing in ethical companies that take all stakeholders (clients, employees, the environment, local community and shareholders) into account with their business decisions. Scott’s passion for governance stems from growing up in Parkersburg, West Virginia. Home of one of the most brazen, deadly corporate gambits in U.S. history. DuPont agreed to settle a class-action lawsuit in 2004 for upwards of 374 million. In 2005 the company agreed to pay the EPA $16.5 million to settle charges against it. The lawsuits alleged that DuPont had concealed evidence that C8 (a byproduct of Teflon) was harmful to human health and had failed to disclose the contamination of public drinking water for more than two decades.
Scott earned Bachelor of Science degrees in both Finance and Marketing from West Virginia University. Additionally, he earned the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation in 2006 and has been a member of the Financial Planning Association since 2004. He is a member of the Fee-Only Network.
He lives in Centennial, CO with his wife Janet, their two sons and Emma (the doggie). Scott loves to spend his free time with family and enjoys getting outdoors hiking, camping and snowboarding. He believes in giving back to the community. He was an active leader with Cub Scout Pack 559 for years and is currently coaching both baseball and flag football for his sons. He also participates in various volunteer opportunities through the Financial Planning Association, CO IMPACT Days and Guys Who Give
