Chris has been a part of the TriWealth team since the summer of 2019. He helps guide individuals, families, and small business owners through the financial planning process by focusing on both long and short-term goals. Chris believes that personal finance is just that, personal, and that every individual and family will experience their own unique path toward reaching their financial goals.
Chris graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Finance from Western Illinois University where he played basketball for the Leathernecks and was named to the Summit League Academic Roll and Chancellor’s List. After undergrad, Chris accepted an assistantship at Western Illinois University, working for the Accounting & Finance Department while completing his MBA.
Originally from Northern California, Chris now calls Chicago, IL home. He lives there with his girlfriend and two Siberian Huskies. When he’s not at work, you can find him taking the pups for a walk, watching sports with friends, or at a local brewery.
At Waddell & Reed we spend our days focused on the ‘what if’ scenarios of the lives of our clients. Here are some ‘what if’ scenarios of our own:
What if you could only give one piece of financial advice? What would it be?
Pay yourself first.
What if you had the day off to do anything you wanted? What would you do?
I would take my two huskies on a hike with my girlfriend, stopping at a local brewery on our way home.
What if you had the job you wanted when you were 5 years old? What would you be doing?
Professional Basketball Player in the NBA
What if you had to describe yourself in three words?
Ambitious, Caring, Trustworthy
