Later he merged with another RIA firm to form Buckeye Wealth Management, LLC where he serves as President and Chief Operation Officer.
Jeff has held the respected Certified Financial Planner ™ certification since May 1996 and believes a financial plan is the foundation of every successful financial strategy, dream, and Ideal Life.
