5 Things About John
John’s personal experience helping his grandmother navigate the physical, mental and financial challenges of longevity and senior care greatly influenced his future career path.
Even though he’s on the road a good chunk of the time, one of John’s favorite diversions is personal travel with his family and friends. His latest destination recommendations: Quebec City, Quebec and Lisbon, Portugal.
Having grown up in rural PA, John enjoys working outside on his John Deere tractor when not on the road.
Despite his natural abilities to captivate a large audience, John is a self-described introvert.
A business mentor once told him, “Change is inevitable, you are not." John helps both financial professionals and clients anticipate the changes that may greatly impact their lives in the future.
