Brian K. Watts

I'm an only child who grew up in a neighborhood with no other children my age.  Unfortunately, I have no exciting stories of being a ruffian or daredevil.

Fast forward to when I believe I became more interesting.  In high school I developed an insatiable appetite for education, which lead to a degree from Pittsburg State University (Go Gorillas!) in biology.  Fortunately this is not where that drive ended.  Since graduation I have continued to expand my education so I can help others create amazing lives and experiences in my role as Wealth Manager.  I've obtained the Accredited Wealth Manager Designation (AWMA) and am a current CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP)® candidate.  While you may say, “so what?” it is important because not only is a high level of education important for your advisor; it is equally important that your advisor be focus on providing the highest standards of fiduciary responsibility working in your best interests.
