Prior to joining Illuminate Financial Group, Scott spent 14 years working with financial advisors as a Regional Vice President for a major financial firm. He has consulted with hundreds of different advisory practices. During that time, Scott saw some of the best our industry has to offer, and unfortunately, some practices at the other end of the spectrum. He learned what it takes to build a successful practice and be engaged with clients while delivering plans and solutions that are unique to them.
When Scott made the decision to move into the role of an advisor, he wanted to work in and grow a practice around doing what was best for clients in every situation. This is exactly what has been established at Illuminate Financial Group; the client is at the absolute center of everything we do. As a Certified Financial Planner®, Scott is obligated to operate in a fiduciary capacity and it is his goal to help educate, guide, and counsel people to their full financial potential. Scott is also a Retirement Income Certified Professional®, and has spent much of his time creating income and distribution plans for clients in retirement. Based on our collective experience, exposure, and education, at Illuminate he knows that the retirees, business owners, and families we serve are in caring and capable hands.
Scott was born and raised in Topeka, Kansas and graduated college from Southern Methodist University. He lives in Omaha with his wife Jacquelyn, and their four children Olivia, Annabelle, Sam and Evelyn. In his free time he surrounds himself with family and friends, is active, plays golf, travels, reads and helps coach some of his children’s activities.
