As a husband and father, Marc sees tremendous value in helping families and individuals build a prosperous life for themselves. “I was always raised to be proud of the work you do in life. It doesn’t matter what the job is, be proud of it."  Setting an example of hard work, excellence and pride in knowing that what you do matters is important to Marc; these values provide him with the desire to give meaningful advice and exceptional client service. 

Marc is a financial advisor at CWM where he works with clients to develop thoughtful goals and realistic strategies to empower them to focus on long-term financial success. He loves a challenge and is always willing and eager to help, so don’t hesitate to ask him for assistance! 

After serving in the Intelligence sector of the Navy for 10 years, Marc decided to pursue a degree from University of Washington in business and finance. His time in the Navy established a deep conviction and a desire to help those around him. Working in a team environment and assisting clients with service, education and motivation are all sources of pride for Marc.

Outside of Work

What better hobby can a husband and a father have than spending time with his family? Marc relishes his weekend mornings, family road trips and opportunities to volunteer within his community.
