Ken joined Frontier in March 2017, previously working in the retail side of the financial services industry. He started his career in insurance, eventually working his way into securities, and then the planning side of the business. In addition to being a Charted Wealth Manager, Ken is also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER professional, and a member of the Financial Planning Association. He graduated, Magna Cum Laude, from Mid-America Christian University with a Bachelor’s degree in Public Administration and Ethics. He is also a graduate of Oklahoma State University, where he earned his Master’s degree in Family Financial Planning. Ken currently serves Frontier clients as a Wealth Advisor.
Outside of work, Ken spends his free time with his family. He is married to his best friend, Beth, and they have a daughter named Olivia. One interesting quality about Ken is that Wealth Management is his second act. He retired from law enforcement in December 2010, where he spent most of his career in Special Operations. Being a member of the SWAT community taught Ken a couple of important lessons – planning matters and mindset is the most important attribute we possess. Ken would tell you the disparity between the two careers is not as vast as one might think. Both careers involve problem solving and critical thinking. When you take away the differences in tools and training, Ken still gets to protect people. Even if the manner in which it’s done is different.
“Money, most common of temporal things, involves uncommon and eternal consequences. Even though it may be done quite unconsciously, money molds people. In the process of getting it, of saving it, of using it, of giving it, of accounting for it. Depending upon how it is handled, it proves a blessing or a curse to its possessor. Either the person becomes master of the money, or money becomes master of the person.”
