Wealth Management Advisor

"I've been doing this a long time (35 years). The greatest compliment I ever receive is when someone tells me they feel less anxious about their financial future and that I made it easy for them to understand the plan."

Education: University of Kentucky. "I believe education is ongoing. I'm a firm believer in ongoing credentialing to not only expand your current knowledge and understanding but to demonstrate your commitment to your clients - that you will continue to grow and learn to better serve their needs."

Biggest Professional Achievement: "Being a mentor to those early in their financial planning careers. I love that I can help my clients but I also know that by mentoring the next generation, we get to help that many more. I appreciate being able to give back to a career I love."

Biggest Personal Achievement: "My family. I have three phenomenal daughters and one exceptionally adorable grandchild that I give thanks for each day. My wife, Susan, is an amazing woman and I am grateful for all she does for our family."

Christian Schnabel, RICP, MBA

"While I love the technical aspects of financial planning, my true passion is simply relieving anxieties. Sometimes it's a complete financial plan and for others it is providing a list of resources in the area."

Education: Wake Forest - MBA and Southern Methodist University, BA History

Organizations (Current and Past): Lexington Hearing and Speech Center, Children's Advocacy Center

Where you'll find him on the weekend: "I can't sit still. I have two boys so I'm usually following them with sports (lacrosse) and other activities. I'm a member at Idlehour and love to play golf when I get the time. And of course, spending time with my lovely wife Elizabeth."
