In 2009 Carl Goodin voluntarily relinquished his securities and insurance licenses and terminated all associated residual benefits in the interest of offering his clients valuable, objective advice unaffected by conflicts of interest associated with commission compensation.

Kevin Shuller, CFP®, CFA

About Kevin Shuller, CFP®, CFA

I’m Kevin Shuller, Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Cedar Peak Wealth Advisors (CPWA). CPWA is a boutique investment manager and financial planning firm catering to the needs of families with small children and couples about to start their families.

It’s easy to obsess over everything when you have young kids. You never really know if you are making the right decisions. You don’t even know if you are asking the right questions. How do I save for college? How am I supposed to operate on 4 hours of sleep? How will I ever be able to retire if I spend this much on organic berries? You are so afraid of doing the wrong thing that you end up doing nothing. Navigating your finances can be as easy as working with a financial advisor who understands you.

That’s where CPWA can help. I am based in Denver but work with families all over the country. Many people are surprised by how collaborative good financial planning is. We will work together to figure out what you want your life to look like tomorrow, 10 years from now, and 40 years from now. After we build a comprehensive financial picture, we will make a map to get you to your goals. Your plan is just for you. I’ll be your guide, helping you stay on the path and avoid the quicksand. It’s your journey. I’ll be with you every step of the way.

Other than a brief period in my teens where I thought I would be a professional golfer, investing is all I’ve wanted to do with my career. I’ve picked stocks at massive mutual fund complexes and small hedge funds. I’ve done portfolio construction and investment research at a $750m independent advisor. I’ve seen all angles of the financial system. I want to use that knowledge and understanding to guide you to your goals. I started by investing my Bar Mitzvah money. That’s how I’ve accumulated 25+ years of investing experience while still being young enough to guide you through the financial jungle for decades to come. I’ve been through many bull and bear markets. I will help you focus on the long-term no matter what the headlines say.

I have a BS with University Honors in Finance and Accountancy from Miami University. I have an MBA from the Johnson School at Cornell University with a focus on Capital Markets and Asset Management. I am a CFA charterholder and a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. My wife and I live in Denver with our two young kids and a dog. When I’m not investing or thinking about investing, you will find me burying my nose in a book, swinging kettlebells, or fondly remembering all of the hobbies I had before kids.

About Ryan Brueck, CFP®

I am a fee-only fiduciary financial planner with ClearWealth, a firm based out of Burlington, Iowa. Although ClearWealth is based in Burlington, I am located in Davenport, Iowa and have the capabilities to work with anyone in the US through a virtual setting. I am passionate about helping individuals organize and find efficiencies in their financial lives while educating them about their options and how those options affect them.

We’re in a world where information is at our fingertips. Whether it’s via social media or other media outlets, there is seemingly endless information. But there’s a major problem, how do you know if this information is right for you and your family’s situation?

I spend a lot of time with my clients figuring out what their ideal lifestyle is today, how to optimize for that, and plan for the future to get to financial freedom and make work optional. I am rebranding the word retirement, that seems so absolute. Who knows what you will want that far in the future at a specific age? We are all guessing at what we want and when it will happen. My job is to help you make good decisions with your money, get to financial freedom efficiently and enjoy life today.

About Harrison Hinz, CFP®

As we learned in 2020, nurses are a pillar of our everyday lives. They spend their careers helping others. Thank you, nurses, for what you do!

My wife is in nursing school and comes from a family of nurses. We have three kids now and hope to have some more down the road. With similar life experiences, combined with the CFP® designation, I both understand your struggles as a nurse and help you find a more clear direction on where you want your finances to go.

I specifically work with nurses that have young children or plan to have children in the next 5 years. Together we prioritize financial goals, discuss saving for child expenses, review cashflow/tax opportunities, plan for retirement, evaluate/establish investment portfolios, and navigate the ever-changing financial world.

I love being able to help nurses understand their financial picture and establish a plan for their future.

Are you ready to take control of your finances? Let’s Talk!

About Ronnie Colvin, CFP®

I spent 31 years climbing the tech career ladder, starting out doing simple data entry, through tech support, network engineer, and Director of IT. If you check my LinkedIn profile, you’ll see I went through a wide variety of industries including DoD, NASA, consulting, petrochemical and telecom manufacturing.

I lived the life of the W2 tech employee, maximizing my salary, benefits, stock options, etc, and when I married another tech employee we had to figure out how to coordinate our benefits most effectively, get our retirement funds balanced properly, insurance issues, even estate planning.

Now that we’re older, we’re also dealing with caring for aging parents while navigating our own lives. I know what it’s like and now I want to help others get through it as well. Not necessarily the executives (though I’ll help them too), but the front-line engineers, scientists, accountants, marketing staff, tech support – all the people who do the day-to-day work in tech who have financial questions and problems to solve are the ones I’m here for.
