A life lived without intention is tragic.

We're here to help you spend without guilt, give without worry, and live with intention.

Let's get intentional

Financial Freedom | Kansas City  | Dogwood Wealth Management

Are you actually living how you want?

And what do you want out of life? These are the questions that begin our relationship together. Through a reflective process and creative financial planning, we help you live out your answers throughout your retirement.

At Dogwood, you get:

A made-just-for-you financial plan, designed to help you live purposefully.

Take a look at our core beliefs.

We believe in being transparent and straightforward. So we’ve laid out what you can expect if you work with us and how we approach financial planning.

Core Beliefs | Kansas City | Dogwood Wealth Management
Financial Advisors | Kansas City  | Dogwood Wealth Management

Two advisors > one advisor.

We (Eric and Jason) put our minds and resources together to offer you the best ideas to reach your goals. You receive the full abilities of two experienced financial professionals and our network of tax and estate planning specialists. We are great at working together and share integrity-driven values.

The Golden Rule of Finances | Kansas City | Dogwood Wealth Management

The golden rule reigns.

We advise people in one of the most consequential areas of their lives. This is a responsibility we don’t take lightly. We provide the same financial advice we would give a close family member or loved one (and the same advice we’d follow ourselves). 

Wealth Is Only Part of Genuine Fulfillment | Kansas City | Dogwood Wealth Management

Wealth ≠ genuine fulfillment.

Simply implementing “smart” financial practices won’t cut it. They have to be uniquely and creatively crafted for you. Understanding your story—and where you want it to go next—is the first step to getting financially organized.

Financial Guidance | Kansas City | Dogwood Wealth Management

Full-picture guidance is key.

Why? Here’s an example: investing well can only get you so far if it means you have to pay a lot more in taxes. To prevent things like this, we always consider all parts of your financial life when making decisions, such as taxes, protection and estate planning.

No More Money Stress | Kansas City | Dogwood Wealth Management

It’s high time you free yourself from money stress.

The truth is the majority of people live with underlying anxiety about money. Maybe it creeps in just once a week or every few weeks. But at its worst, it’s a nagging feeling you can’t quite shake. If this resonates with you, let's talk.

About Dogwood Wealth Management

We’re not just here to help you save / invest / plan / budget.

Our larger goal is to help you live better.

Getting To Know You Financially | Kansas City | Dogwood Wealth Management

Our Approach

Spreadsheets don’t cut it here.

Your finances are directly intertwined with your life. And your life can’t be boiled down to numbers on a grid, an algorithm, or a cookie-cutter strategy. Organizing your money requires creative thinking and solutions that go beyond numbers and even beyond wealth management.

So when you work with us, we have open conversations about what’s most important to you. 

What fulfills you most? What do you value, and how do you want to live? We challenge you to reflect, to get specific, and to be as honest as possible. Then, we create holistic solutions covering all areas of your finances that interact directly with your life.

We’re passionate about improving your life, so we’re adamant about our client-first philosophy.

We give sound advice that works for your benefit, not ours. We’re humbled by the trust our clients place in us, and we strive to continually earn this trust by working with uncompromising integrity and a commitment to your best interest. That’s what it means to us to be your financial partners, and if our philosophy resonates with you, we want to hear from you.

One of my earliest memories of money is when my grandfather would give me a dollar every time he would see me, as a child. I would joyfully place my dollar bill in my wallet and excitingly count my bills until I had saved enough to buy the new farm animal that I had been eyeing at the local farm and ranch supply store. Ever since then I had the “saver” mentality.

In December of 2022, I graduated from Kansas State University with a major in Personal Financial Planning. It was in college where I learned how to combine my passion for helping people and planning. In 2022 I represented K-State in the Financial Planning Competition put on by the Financial Planning Association, where my team proudly took second place.

In my free time I enjoy all things nature, watching a good movie with a bowl of popcorn and spending time with friends and family!

I recently studied for and passed my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ exam, and I am patiently waiting to earn my experience hours.

I began my career in the financial industry in 2003. I’ve always had a passion for helping individuals realize their financial goals through a balanced life approach while working with clients to discover what is truly important to each individual client in their retirement. In 2022, along with my business partner, Jason Newcomer, I launched Dogwood Wealth Management. This is an important step in allowing me to deliver on essential aspects of a stable and durable retirement plan for my clients.

I have been blessed to have four wonderful children with my wife, Sarah. My wife and I met at Kansas State University and have thoroughly enjoyed making Kansas our home. We currently reside in Shawnee, KS and enjoy an abundance of outdoor activities and living life to the fullest.

As we all know, life can throw many curveballs. Living each day to the best of my ability and embracing the unforeseen life circumstances that may come our way is a challenge I set for myself daily.

After more than a decade of working at my previous firm, where at some point I did just about every job under the sun, I launched Dogwood alongside my good friend and business partner Eric. I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, an Accredited Investment Fiduciary, and an Enrolled Agent. I also have served as a board member for the Greater Kansas City Financial Planning Association. 

What I enjoy most about being a financial planner is getting to know the families who I work with and helping them see and think about money as a tool that can be used to build a truly fulfilling life.

I am a lifelong Kansas City resident, save the four years I spent in Springfield at Missouri State University. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Lauren. Together we have two amazing children, Remi Jo and Mick. If I wasn’t a financial planner, I’d probably be trying to find a way to make a living as a hunter, fisherman, and beer brewer.
