My Passion:

I believe that facts beat opinions 100% of the time! Studies show that most people spend more time planning a two-week vacation, rather than the next 20-30 years! Mark founded Secure Future Advisors and Secure Future Tax Advisors to help small business owners, successful professionals, pre-retirees, and retirees build a more secure future.

My Expertise:

We implement unique planning processes to address the three (3) phases of life: (1) Accumulation (2) Distribution (3) Legacy These processes begin with a candid conversation, so we can “get acquainted”, and incorporate your ideas and desires. This results in a personalized “Blueprint”, which is easy to understand with practical, tax-efficient investment and insurance solutions.

My Role:

Proper planning should address your personal, family, career, spiritual and financial objectives.  My unique ability is to understand and implement a plan which brings more confidence and clarity to these areas of your life.

My Personal Interests:

Mark graduated from The Ohio State University, and started his financial services career with Northwestern Mutual, before deciding to become an independent financial advisor in 2005.  He is actively involved with the Million Dollar Round Table(MDRT), where he has been a qualifying member for 23 consecutive years (1996-2018). He has earned 8 Top of the Table(TOT) qualifications and 7 Court of the Table(COT)qualifications (top 6%).

For the past 12 years, Mark has been a participant in the Strategic Coach program, designed for entrepreneurs.  Mark enjoys the insights from Warren Buffett and incorporates his wisdom in both his personal and professional life.

Mark was born in Dayton, Ohio and currently resides on a small family farm of 10 acres in Waynesville, Ohio. He and his wife, Kelly, have been married for 27 years, and have 9 children, 3 of which are siblings adopted from Ethiopia. Together, the family raises miniature donkeys, chickens, horses, and bees.  Mark is a Board Member of a Child’s Hope International, a ministry focused on orphans and children around the world.

My Passion

The advisory team at Secure Future Advisors helps our clients bridge the financial gap between their current situations and their desired outcomes. This process involves building relationships, having candid conversations, and implementing financial plans. I am truly passionate about the back office work that goes into drafting and implementing these plans, organizing and analyzing data, and providing client service. 

My Expertise

I graduated from Cedarville University with honors in December of 2021. I studied Economics, and took elective classes in Finance and Law. I have passed my FINRA Series 65 & Series 7 exams in order to further my understanding of the finance industry. However, much of what I will learn in the near future will come from working alongside and serving our advisory team. 

My Role

As our Director of Financial Planning, my role is to assist our advisor group in all facets of the client relationships and financial planning workflow. I provide client relationship support by gathering and analyzing client data,  preparing preliminary financial plans and other client deliverables, as well as handling client service requests. In doing so, I assist in continuing to provide our clients with the best service possible. 

My Personal Interest

I was born and raised in Miamisburg, Ohio and still currently reside there. I recently graduated from Cedarville University where I majored in Economics and minored in Bible. In my spare time, I enjoy reading non-fiction books, particularly those on political science and history. I also enjoy spending time outdoors doing things like hiking or water sports. Lastly, I enjoy watching my favorite NFL team, the Cleveland Browns.
