Travel

My first opportunity to really travel came in 2011 when Rachel and I took our honeymoon to London, Paris and Ireland. We had a remarkable time exploring new places together and seeing so much history. There’s nothing quite like the first time you walk the Champs-Élysées. French novelist, Gustave Flaubert, summarizes a large reason we like to travel:

“Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world.”

Hobbies

  • Beach
  • Travel
  • Four-Wall Handball
  • Dinner with friends & family
  • Naturally, anything Truitt and Barrett are doing

Competency

I was fortunate that my first real job in the financial services industry began at Wiseman & Associates Wealth Management in 2008. The role exposed me to many areas of the financial services industry without the pressure to “sell” or find new relationships. This gave me the opportunity to learn and question everything. The foundation of knowledge that came from these early years of learning helped shape my view of the work we want to be doing today.

Ambition

  • To build something people are proud of
  • To provide a loving childhood and growing opportunity for my two sons, Truitt and Barrett.

Travel

My wife, Cassey, and I recently had the opportunity to visit England and Scotland with some friends.  While there, we participated in the world’s largest half marathon which is held annually in Newcastle, England.  My favorite aspect of travel is venturing off the beaten pathmeeting new peopleand experiencing other cultures.  As our daughters, Lucy and Avery, get older we want to take every opportunity we may have to explore the world with them.   

Hobbies

  • Weekend adventures with Cassey, Lucy, and Avery
  • Anything at the beach
  • Spending time with friends and family

Competency

The early portion of my career was spent working as a financial advisor with two major “wirehouse” firms.  During these years I saw the good, bad, and the ugly of our business.  This experience shaped my approach as I managed my own firm, Winchester Wealth Management, over the last ten years.  I value the close relationships we share with our clients and I appreciate the trust they place in us and the opportunity they give us to make positive difference in their lives and the lives of their families.          

Ambition

I want to positively impact my community by living a legacy of honesty, kindness to others, and hard work. I want my children to always know that they are loved, supported, and safe.  And above all, I want to show them that anything is possible; there is no limit to what they can accomplish if they are willing to work diligently, live with integrity, and always remain humble and kind.

Travel

When traveling, my wife and I prefer to travel somewhere warm and with a beach. Our latest trip was our honeymoon after getting married in June of 2019 to Montego Bay, Jamaica. While most of our time was spent relaxing on the beach, we were able to venture off the resort a few days for two excursions including cliff diving and swimming with dolphins.

Hobbies

  • Exploring and traveling with my wife on the weekends
  • Golf with friends
  • Woodworking
  • Vegetable gardening in my free time

Competency

Hard work, service and honesty were key themes I learned from my family growing up. These traits gave me the foundation needed while spending the last 7 years working in the financial planning industry.

Ambition

The legacy I wish to live is all about service. Service to my family, community and work. By giving my all to these things I can positively impact the world around me.

Travel

I've lived in a few places (Dallas, Va. Beach, Nashville) but have never vacationed other than a trip to Kitty Hawk last year and a couple drives to NYC. I also completed a marathon in Dublin, Ireland in 2002 and a half marathon in Nashville in 2012. For sure though, my love is Nashville. I was there from 2010 to 2016 and I miss it every single day. It's a fantastic city to live in -- so full of artistry, big dreams, and beautiful topography. It's a very powerful place.

Hobbies

  • Interior Design
  • Home Renovations
  • Running

Competency

As a former project manager and database administrator, my comfort with juggling multiple personalities and tasks, as well as my keen eye for detail, certainly aids me as we collectively work hard to help our clients navigate the complexities of finance and position themselves to live their happiest life.

Ambition

Really, most important to me, is being thought of as kind and generous in thought and actions. I often think about how different the world would be if each of us simply paid a bit more attention to the need we confront on a daily basis -- and then did something about it!

Travel

My husband worked internationally.  This gave us the opportunity to travel to many different countries.  Our favorite location was Oahu - Waikiki Beach, Hawaii.  Our favorite moment while traveling was riding bikes down the mountain from Haleakala National Park where we experienced the sunrise, the mist of rain, rainbows, and the heavenly smells from the lavender fields as we traveled down the winding hill. 

Hobbies

  • Traveling 
  • Volunteering 
  • Gardening 
  • spending time with my family, friends, and Grandchildren 

Competency

I started in the Banking and Financial Services Industry in 1978.  The Dow Jones Average was around 800.  Look where we are today!  I have been through all the ups and downs and experienced Black Monday, 9/11, The Tech Bubble, The Housing/Mortgage Crisis, and now the Coronavirus Crisis.  From experience, I can say it has definitely been a wild ride over these many years.  Wise words from a dear old friend from New York taught me valuable lesson years ago.  He always reminded me, “When nobody wants them(stocks) is when you buy them.  Never panic or ever go along with the crowd”.  These words remain true for yesterday, today, and tomorrow! 

Ambition

My Ambition - I strive to be a little kinder, more caring, and a better person than I was yesterday.  Loosing two spouses to cancer at very young ages has made me realize how truly precious life can be.  Going through those days, by their side each step of the way, during their battle with this horrible disease helped to make me realize how life can quickly change in a single moment.  During those days, I reevaluated my life, my ambitions, and found getting through the darkest days helped me to find a deeper strength, new, and different ambitions I thought I had lost forever.  I then began to refocus my personal ambitions on others.  So today, I strive to live, love, continue to find peace, and happiness by working with our incredible client's while helping them along the way to navigate their road to their own ambitions, and individual legacies.  They provide my ambitions with the start of each new day.  

Working together as a team, Buttonwood Wealth, provides our drive and ambition each, and every day, by providing top notch client services in a kind, caring, and exceptional manner.  We, as a team, seek to excel our client's expectations by providing top notch client service so their goals, investment objectives, and their legacy is acknowledged and it is exactly that ... "Their Legacy".

Travel

In 2016 I spent three weeks in Greece for a wedding. The first two days in Athens were lush with history and incredible food. From there I got roped into driving a manual Nissan X-terra five hours west of Athens to my cousin's house on the island of Lefkada. We explored the island on motorcycles and boats, tasted Mediterranean dishes at each village/port, and relaxed on white sand beaches next to unparalleled sunsets. Next, I want to go to Argentina and Chile to camp and hike in Torres del Paine.

Hobbies

  • Flying airplanes
  • Traveling the world
  • Rock climbing

Competency

With my time on this earth, albeit short, I've become best friends with failure and humility. I don't believe I'm naturally good at anything. But I know from experience that working relentlessly to learn, master, and overcome whatever objective I set my mind towards will always yield the result I want. This mindset coupled with my dedication to life-long learning and relationship building are what I believe to be the traits that make me good at what I do.

Ambition

I want to leave a legacy of selfless service to others as a pilot in the USAF and encourage people to chase their dreams to the end.
