From the beginning of Jarrett’s career in the financial services industry, his belief has always been a client first, service-intensive model. Jarrett believes that clients value advice on the “real-life” questions: How do I pay for college? When can I retire? When do I take Social Security? Which pension option is best for me? Jarrett has a practice designed to answer these questions and help relieve clients of their financial stress. Over the years Jarrett’s dedication to education, the development of a proven process and the utilization of technology have kept his practice at the forefront of the financial planning industry.
Jarrett’s responsibilities include developing and implementing financial strategies, creating and reviewing investment portfolios and advising clients on all aspects of their financial life. Most importantly, he helps them save time, organize their finances and manage life’s change as they arise. Jarrett believes that awareness and the continual review of one’s Financial Plan is the backbone to a successful future. Having the ability to remain flexible as the landscape changes over time is the difference between the services at RiversEdge and other financial services options.
Jarrett graduated from the University of Delaware with a bachelor’s degree in finance and a minor in economics. He holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®), the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) and the Accredited Investment Fiduciary (AIF®) designations.

As a gentleman with a positive attitude and proactive demeanor, Brian is heavily involved with client relations.

Brian is a volunteer coach for his sons' football, basketball and baseball teams, and loves any chance he gets to spend with his family. Passionate about animals, their family regularly fosters dogs through Out of the Woods Rescue in Medford, New Jersey. With Kristen leading the way, Brian’s family fostered and helped 13 dogs find forever homes over the past 2 years. When he isn’t dedicating his time to his family, sports, or animals, Brian is heavily involved with his alma mater, the Tatnall School, in Wilmington, Delaware.
