Rory was born in Los Angeles, California but grew up in Knoxville, TN. He attended Berry College where he got his degree in Exercise Science with a minor in Business Administration and played collegiate tennis. After he graduated from Berry College, he moved to Georgia where he calls home. He originally was studying to be a doctor, but with time he realized it wasn’t his passion. During this time, he was teaching tennis as a tennis professional at Wintergreen resort with affluent clients and a few of them were Financial Advisors. He got some encouragement and book recommendations from them due to his own interest in personal finance. Afterwards, his church in Rome, GA offered Dave Ramsey’s course, Financial Peace University, and he took the course. Through a time of self reflection, he changed career course and realized that Financial Advising combines both his skillset and passion to help families reach financial peace and make wise investments. “My goal is to lead other families and individuals to financial freedom so that they can achieve their life goals without the worry of money.” Through careful listening and attention to detail, he is dedicated to developing comprehensive financial strategies so that clients can feel confident in navigating their financial positions.
If he could spend one day doing anything – “I would skydive first thing in the morning, have brunch–I love french toast. Then I would go hang out with my friends on the lake and have a watermelon, and end the evening playing card games with friends and family.”
If he could share one message with the world it would be – “the marble analogy — that trust is built on small consistent and reciprocal vulnerability over time!”
If he could have coffee with one person – “Being a retired college tennis player, I would love to have a conversation and play a tennis match with Roger Federer who is the ultimate GOAT in my opinion.”
One lesson he keeps relearning – “you are enough.”
One movie he wishes life was more like – “About Time — it teaches you to enjoy every single moment and to be appreciative and full of gratitude.”Favorite books:
