”To me, it’s important to only offer the services and products that I would obtain myself. This goes a long way to show clients that we are looking out for their best interests and not just trying to make a sale.“

He also regularly shares his expertise by speaking for local organizations on topics related to debt management and income tax planning strategies.
Justin was first inspired to pursue an investment and accounting career during his first bookkeeping course in high school. Today he attributes his professional success to his faith. Justin also credits his strong desire to help people who have struggled financially. More specifically, he aims to help these individuals stop living paycheck to paycheck and develop lifelong principles they can pass on to future generations.
Justin grew up in Smith Center, Kansas and currently resides in Hutchinson with his wife, Jenny. Together they have four daughters: Rebekah, Elizabeth, Emma and Sarah. Justin and his family enjoy the Hutchinson area due to its size, good family atmosphere and close proximity to attractions. Outside of the office, his primary interests are hunting and spending time with his family.
