Mark embodies Vance Wealth’s core value: Being passionate, positive, and present.
Mark (Wealth Advisor) first fell in love with investing during college, when students were invited to participate in a Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF). Through the students’ work and collaboration with faculty, the school awarded scholarships to new students in the business program. Witnessing the power of investments first hand — and its potential to truly change lives, Mark knew this was the path he wanted to pursue. Helping others achieve their dreams.
After college, a position opened up at Vance Wealth, and Mark jumped at the chance to do exactly what he loved with people who shared similar interests and values.
One of Mark’s favorite roles at Vance Wealth is working on the Investment Committee Team, discussing economic conditions, monitoring client portfolios, and implementing meaningful changes. While dedicating himself to this work and becoming more familiar with the Vance Wealth family, Mark is highly motivated and grateful to help steward client’s financial futures.
His favorite part of the job is seeing clients achieve more through the goals they planned together, and he looks forward to continuing his education by pursing the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation in 2021.
When he’s not in the office, Mark volunteers with his local youth ministry, which he’s been dedicated to leading since he graduated high school. If he’s not found working with junior high students, you can probably find Mark planning a new trip abroad with family and friends, or at the beach pursuing his passion of surfing and diving.
