About Crawford Ulmer, CFP®, EA

I seek to glorify Jesus Christ and make Him known, as I help young families and singles steward their finances well.

I was fascinated by investing at a young age. Despite its importance, I have found that personal finance is rarely talked about and young professionals are often ill-equipped to plan for their futures. I am passionate about making financial planning accessible to my clients and helping them invest to achieve their goals.

Before starting Ulmer Financial, I worked as an assistant to a financial planner where I created and operated our investment management process, researched a variety of financial planning issues, and served clients. I have a BS in Commerce from the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce and am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER (TM) professional and Enrolled Agent.

About Andrew Mastro, CFP®, CFA, CAIA

Hi, I’m Andrew!

I founded Wrought Advisors in 2021 because you should have the option to work with a fee-only advisor, free from the conflicts of interest of old wall street, who can help you reduce taxes, invest, and make smart financial decisions so you can live your best life. I love what I do and it brings me such fulfillment to see my clients’ succeed.

I’ve been interested in history, finance, and psychology since I was a kid growing up in Ocean City, New Jersey. After graduating from The College of New Jersey with honors, I began my financial services career in the alternative investment industry (private equity, hedge funds, and commercial real estate) first with Merrill Lynch Alternative Investments in Princeton, New York, and Boston and then with FS Investments based in Philadelphia. I grew tired of getting on airplanes for work and being away from my family so with the entrepreneurial spirit calling me I began my wealth management practice at Merrill Lynch and then I founded the independent and fee-only firm Wrought Advisors.

I am married to my beautiful and patient wife and together we reside in Haddonfield, NJ with our two young daughters and Labrador Retriever. I enjoy traveling and sharing new experiences with my girls and coaching their sports teams. Giving back to my community is important to me so I am a member of the Rotary Club of Haddonfield where we support many local, regional, and even some international projects. With whatever free time is left to me I love to read, work on home improvement projects, jog with my dog, cycle, ski, and squeeze in the increasingly rare round of golf.

Valerie Rivera, CFP®

About Valerie Rivera, CFP®

Hi! I’m Valerie. Thanks for checking out my profile! A little bit about me:

I am a First in my family. The first to go to college. The first to break barriers at work. The first to make more money than my parents ever did. I did not grow up reading the Wall Street Journal on my dad’s lap. There was no financial safety net. I built my own. I entered financial services nearly 15 years ago and fell in love with empowering people to build financial confidence.

What I noticed throughout my career was that generally, no one looked like me, both on the advisor side AND the client side. Despite money being such a critical part of our livelihood, we don’t learn about this stuff in school and quality advice is generally only provided to those who have already achieved financial success.

I’m on a mission to provide financial planning to all the Firsts and act as a catalyst for people to feel secure about their own financial success. I have a huge focus on providing education and meeting people where they are in life with no shame, no judgment financial advice.

I founded FirstGen Wealth to normalize quality, fiduciary, fee-only financial advice for people who are the first to build wealth in their families. We guide people in all areas where money touches your life. Spoiler: It’s A LOT of areas.

We do our best work for early to mid-career individuals and families who are the First to grow wealth in their world. Do you want a collaborative financial guide and sounding board as you build your most abundant life?

Then, you belong here.

Join the wealth-building revolution and change the trajectory of your life and generations to come.

For all the Firsts. From a First.

Kevin Cheeks, CFP®

About Kevin Cheeks, CFP®

Kevin Cheeks is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional specializing in equity compensation, tax-efficient financial planning, direct indexing and socially conscious investing. With close to two decades of experience in wealth management, Kevin has worked at several of the largest financial services firms such as Bank of America, Wells Fargo and Charles Schwab. While at Schwab, Kevin was responsible for advising stock plan participants at some of the largest tech companies in the San Francisco Bay Area, such as Apple, Facebook (Meta), Google (Alphabet), Twitter, Uber, and many others. In 2020 Kevin joined forces with several colleagues to help launch ECHO45, a boutique Registered Investment Advisor (RIA), where he served as the firm’s Chief Compliance Officer and Director of Planning Services, in addition to continuing to serve as a Financial Advisor to his own book of clients.

2020 proved to be not only an interesting time to launch a new firm, but also a historically important period in our country and around the world. After 2 years of helping to build and grow ECHO45, Kevin felt a calling to be doing something more. Having been brought up in a home with parents who served in the Peace Core, participated in the civil rights demonstrations in the 1960’s and were active in grassroots political campaigns, Kevin felt it was time to align his work with his ethos. “ImpactFI was born from the idea of creating a platform where investors can make a difference in the world around them while simultaneously accomplishing their own financial goals. Making money and making an impact don’t have to be mutually exclusive.” In April of 2022, ImpactFI opened its virtual doors for business.

When he’s not helping clients accomplish their financial and altruistic goals, Kevin and his partner, Sejal, enjoy taking advantage of life in the Bay Area with their dog, Nullah. An avid traveler and board sport enthusiast, from snowboarding in Canada to surfing in Sri Lanka, Kevin has visited 24 countries so far and looks forward to growing that list even longer. He’s also a self-proclaimed points and miles nerd. In 2019, he had the great fortune of being able to go on a surf and yoga themed sabbatical, during which he flew around the world, visiting 7 countries along the way, flying entirely in business class and almost entirely on points and miles!

Mike Farrow, CFP®

About Mike Farrow, CFP®

I’m Mike Farrow, and I’m the founder of FlightPath Financial Planning. I started my own firm because I wanted to have more control over implementing ideas and practices that are truly best for my clients. I grew up reading books written by some of the greatest financial minds of all time. From those books I developed an ethos deeply rooted in doing what’s best for the investor. This translates today to doing what’s best for the client. I always put my clients interests first and assist them in setting themselves up for a strong financial future.

Why take your journey with FlightPath Financial Planning?

It is often said that a house is only as good as the foundation it is built on. Likewise, I built my financial planning firm from the ground up using our industry’s best technology, tools and practices. Building it myself has allowed me to keep my costs to you quite low. I charge reasonable, flat rate and fully transparent fees based on your financial complexity, and not on how much money you have. I provide advice only. This means I do not sell products or make a commission from any of my recommendations. I have built this firm around what is best for my clients, and I will continue to make those decisions that put you and your finances above all else. That is my promise.
