Phil has an extensive background in the field of education, working as a teacher and school administrator both in public and Christian schools. While in education, he earned his master’s degree in Educational Leadership from Western Michigan University.
In 2008, he moved to the financial services field, and has been a financial advisor for a growing practice in West Michigan, with clients also spread across the country.
Phil’s years in education have uniquely enabled him to be a “teacher” for his clients. Hence, he has a heart for seeing that his clients get beyond just investing with him and can understand their investments. He holds general securities and insurance licenses and is a Financial Advisor with LPL.
Phil lives with his wife, Lynn, in Allendale, and has four grown children and ten grandchildren. His passions outside of his practice are centered on backpacking and hiking, travel with his wife, reading and strategic board games.
