Additional Information

Kent grew up in a family business environment, where he graduated from pulling weeds in the landscaping (and riding the factory cranes) as a child, to eventually becoming the Controller. After the family business sold in 2007, Kent decided to pursue other opportunities and served as a financial advisor with Northwestern Mutual for five years.

In 2013, he joined Buckingham Strategic Wealth as a wealth advisor, where he finds great pleasure in being able to deliver advice that’s in the best interests of his clients. He also enjoys being surrounded by others that share his passion for evidence-based investment planning.

He resides in southeast Iowa with his wife, Megan, and three children.  His perfect day includes a steaming cup of coffee, a warm fire, and a Dickens novel.
