About Financial Residency
This community is here to help you increase your financial literacy and confidently take control of your household finances. Arming you with financial knowledge so that you can protect and grow your assets and not leave you vulnerable to insurance agents, stock brokers, realtors, and lenders. And to bring everyone together for support and solidarity during the medical journey.
Who is Ryan?
I’m a father of two, Wyatt and Ruby, and married to a pediatric pulmonologist, Taylor, for almost 5 years. We met freshman year of college (when we were 18!) and have been together ever since. I was there for the long-distance travel back and forth every month to Kansas City from Southern California for medical school. I was there through the long hours and many nights of being on call during residency and there for what seemed like the longest three years of training that they call fellowship. Unlike the majority of your friends, I really do understand the same joys and struggles that you have been through!
By day, I’m a flat fee-only financial planner that works exclusively with physicians and their families and a podcaster and writer by night.
Flat fee-only financial planner, what the heck does that mean?
It means that I am always a fiduciary to my clients, and truly have their best interest in mind. I don’t sell products or receive commissions or kickbacks for what I recommend to my clients… aka true conflict-free financial planning advice. It also signifies that I do not charge an additional fee to manage client assets (typically referred to an asset under management fee or AUM). Everything is included in one flat monthly fee.
I love learning about my clients, hearing their stories, and acting as a trusted fiduciary throughout the course of their careers. I seek to help them take care of themselves while they take care of others.
I’m humbled to have been featured in US News, Entrepreneur, KevinMD, White Coat Investor and an expert panelist in the New England Journal of Medicine Financial Planning 101 web series.
As you read the blog, listen to the podcasts or interact with me in the Financial Residency Community Facebook page, you will learn that my family is the primary motivation for everything that I do, and you will see them often throughout all of the content I create.
