        Originally from Bowling Green, Kentucky, Scott earned a B.S. in both Finance and Marketing from the Gatton College of Business at the University of Kentucky. In September of 2015, he began his career in the financial services industry by joining UBS as a member of The Legacy Group.

         

        In his time at UBS, Scott has obtained his Series 7 and 66 securities licenses as well as his Life, Accident and Health Insurance licenses. Additionally, Scott’s commitment to continuous learning for the benefit of his clients led to him become a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Certificant.

         

        As an area of focus, Scott has a passion for working with Business Owners to help navigate the challenges of starting, growing and ultimately transitioning a privately held business in the most efficient way possible. This passion led him to develop the skills and training necessary to carry the Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA®) designation. As a CEPA®, Scott works with his business owner clients both pre- and post-sale to educate them on the potential exit options at their disposal – along with the pros and cons of each option.

         

        In addition to working with clients to create comprehensive Financial Plans and cash flow strategies, Scott focuses on the development, implementation and management of tailored investment solutions.

         

        Scott lives in Anderson with his wife Gina and son Griffin. He enjoys spending time with family, being on the golf course, and playing intramural sports of all kinds. Scott is also a member of the Good Samaritan Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Parent Focus Group, helping better the experience for children and families of the NICU.
