Additional Information

Stephen has been part of the Partners in Financial Planning family since 2016. Stephen started working in the financial planning industry right after college, starting in the Greensboro, NC area before moving back to Virginia and settling in Salem in 2016. He holds a finance degree from Virginia Tech, with a concentration in financial planning. Stephen is dedicated to his CrossFit training every morning before work and his black lab, Hudson, keeps him busy with his own training of sorts. When he is not at the gym or hanging out with Hudson, you are most likely to find him on a golf course or at a Virginia Tech sporting event.
