Much of Doug’s professional drive was groomed during his college basketball career playing for legendary coaches: Dean Smith at the University of North Carolina and Roy Williams at the University of Kansas. His involvement with these high-caliber teams taught Doug numerous life lessons and sparked his need for achievement, his competitiveness, and an optimism in the form of resilience.
In 1992, Doug began advising clients on financial management and investment planning, asset allocation and management, retirement planning, and debt management. Using his same passion for success, he has earned consulting experience with corporations, endowments, and high net-worth individuals, helping each meet their unique financial goals.
Doug has been quoted in numerous publications including Yahoo! Sports, the New York Times and the Kansas City Business Journal. He has also provided financial education at the Kansas City Chiefs’ financial education and 401k seminars, athletic camps, financial symposiums, and schools.
Outside of work, Doug is an active member in the charitable community. He has worked with and continues to work with a long list of organizations with a keen focus on faith-based organizations aimed at supporting underprivileged youth and financial literacy.
In search of the next “bucket list” opportunity, Doug completed the New York Marathon, Escape from Alcatraz, and numerous half marathons. Additionally, he stays active in the Kansas City basketball community by serving as a radio and television analyst for high school and college broadcasts.
