“Back in 8th grade, each student in my math class was given $100 of play money to invest in the stock market and we tracked the performance over the course of the school year. It was one of my favorite school projects and piqued my initial interest in investing.”
The interest sparked by the math assignment ignited a passion for financial literacy and education. Zach’s commitment to furthering his own understanding of the financial world continues well beyond his time at St. Michael’s College, providing him with a wealth of knowledge that he enthusiastically shares with his clients and their families.
Life’s transitions are stressful and often require important financial decisions to be made in their midst. It may seem like these transitions consist of several seemingly scrambled pieces, from many sources, and no guide as to what the final puzzle looks like. Through education, detailed analysis, and teamwork, Zach is dedicated to helping his clients find out which pieces are right for their personal puzzle and connect them in a way that brings calm to an otherwise stressful situation.
Zach’s drive to help others in a transitionary period led him to his position on the Board of the Cancer Patient Support Foundation, an organization providing assistance to patients and their families during diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.
Originally from Bedford, New Hampshire, Zach lives in Burlington with his wife, Katie, a medical school student at UVM, and their rescue dog, Mo.

The rankings weigh the scores in Scope of Practice and Growth more heavily than other areas.

Out of approximately 560 total nominations received and 79 in this category, 50 advisors received the award.
