About Kenny Senour, CFP®

I help young professionals and families align their money with their life through fee-only, fiduciary financial planning.

It’s important that you feel like your advisor is listening to you – and that you understand WHY something is being recommended and HOW it fits into YOUR plan.

That’s why I’m passionate about educating you on investments and finance and not simply making recommendations without you fully understanding why.

HELPING MILLENNIALS WIN WITH MONEY: We grew up in an age where financial literacy was not taught in school. So, if our parents didn’t teach us about money, we were left to figure it out on our own.

I am passionate about the Mission at MWM to change the lives of millennials and their families through financial planning. I understand the importance of partnership and taking the time to educate you through the financial planning process.

It’s important that you know WHY we are recommending certain strategies, or WHY we utilize certain investment vehicles. At MWM, our goal is growth, both personally and financially. I hope to work with you soon!

HOW I GET PAID: Services are delivered via a transparent, fee-only service model.

Comprehensive financial planning consists of an upfront charge and an ongoing fee that is paid monthly.

Our standard advisory fee is based on the market value of the assets under management and is based on the schedule listed on the website: https://www.millennialwealthmanagement.com/fee-schedule/

Andrew Katz-Moses, CFP®

About Andrew Katz-Moses, CFP®

Hi, I’m Andrew. I help educators and government employees make sense of their finances so they can focus on living life.

When I was a teacher and DCPS staff member, I signed up with one of the salespeople pushing expensive 403(b) plans. When I learned I was set up to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars in unnecessary fees over the course of my career, my outrage fueled a passion to help other educators.

Now I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional working with educators and city government employees in the DC area.

Jose Armenta, CFP®, ChFC®

About Jose Armenta, CFP®, ChFC®, EA

I believe the focus of financial planning should be on your “why.” What are your goals and values? Once we’ve identified your path, I will guide you in designing a comprehensive financial life plan that’ll allow you to walk that path. Only after we have found the “why” can we create the “how” –and only after understanding your unique desires do we start discussing numbers.

When I first entered the financial services industry, I was discouraged by the type of financial services I saw offered to Federal employees, from inappropriate insurance products to patchwork advice focused on trying to “beat the market.” Equipped with a bachelor’s degree in finance and accounting from Columbia College, a master’s degree in financial and tax planning from San Diego State University, and a lifelong awareness of the link between money management and life satisfaction, I became determined to provide real comprehensive financial planning for Federal employees that focused on helping them accomplish their goals.

The decision to specialize in helping Federal employees stems from my experience serving in the Marine Corps as a bomb dog handler. In 2013, I was injured by an IED in Afghanistan and medically retired, along with my bomb dog Zenit. Despite this unexpected curve in my path, I still had the same “why”: I wanted to be involved in a mission greater than myself and help those I cared about. I knew this meant continuing to work with those who serve our great nation.

My “how” turned out to be launching Create Your Path, a fee-only, independent financial planning firm specializing in advising Federal employees. As a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner, Chartered Financial Consultant, an Enrolled Agent, and a former Federal employee who has been in your shoes, I am ready to guide you towards the life you envision.

William Jensen, CFP®, EA, CKA®

About William Jensen, CFP®, EA, CKA®

Welcome to Acadia Financial Services. It’s different here.
From its genesis, we have consciously built a firm that is designed to meet the financial service needs of most individuals and families, while simultaneously addressing many of the hesitations that people face when hiring an advisor.

The motivation to form Acadia stemmed from my first experience with a financial advisor. As a Second Lieutenant in the US Air Force back in 1990, I was referred by a friend to his advisor. In short order, it became clear that he did not have my best interests in mind; he did a fairly good job of separating me from my money. I was so dismayed by the incident that I became my own financial advisor, determined to protect others from the same experience.

Nearly thirty years later, when it was time to retire from the military, I was called to continue serving others as a Christian financial advisor. I now focus on helping clients pursue financial freedom and contentment.

Again, welcome to Acadia Financial Services. I think you will like what you see.

John Cooney, CFP®, EA

About John Cooney, CFP®, EA, MBA

Hello, my name is John Cooney and I am the founder and owner of Green and Gold Financial Planning, a fee-only financial planning firm located in Middleboro, Massachusetts. Since I was young, I have always been fascinated with money, saving, and investing. As I got older, I was excited to learn that there is a whole career field centered around helping people define their financial goals and working together on a plan to help them live the financial lives they want and deserve. This realization led me in 2017 to switch careers and start my own firm so I could turn my passion into a career of helping others.

After graduating from the United States Military Academy in 1998, I served as an Active Duty Armor Officer for 5 and ½ years, including overseas tours to Korea, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Iraq. Since 2006, I have served in the Army Reserves as a Civil Affairs Officer and enjoyed deployments to Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, and Kuwait and I continue to serve in the Army Reserves today.

It is my military background that has led me to focus my services on those clients who are currently serving or have served in the past. My experience with programs such as the Thrift Savings Plan, the Blended Retirement System, the Savings Deposit Program is not only professional but personal as well. Having served on Active Duty and as a Reservist, I understand the financial issues and benefits that are involved with military service. I bring a unique perspective to those service members in the National Guard and Reserve and understand the financial decisions that have to be made when juggling a civilian and military career. Most importantly, I’ve lived the life of a service member and wish that when I was a new Second Lieutenant, I knew then what I know now and that is at the heart of what I am trying to do as a financial planner. I am trying to pass on not only what I know as a financial professional, but how I can translate that expertise into the world of a service member, veteran, and their families.

In addition to being a Certified Financial Planner ®, I am also an Enrolled Agent, an IRS designation that allows me to represent tax-payers in front of the IRS. I am a member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisors (NAPFA), the Financial Planning Association of Massachusetts, the Military Financial Advisors Association, and XY Planning Network. I am an active volunteer with both NAPFA and the FPA in offering Pro Bono services to service members and disabled veterans. When not working or on Drill Weekend, I enjoy traveling and spending quality time with my wife, Erin.
