Broker Check


We provide the highest level of care and accountability. Everything we do must be in your best interest.

Complete Transparency

No magic tricks or distractions. Everything we do is transparent. Log into our online system to see your accounts any time, from any device, no matter where you may be.


We have been serving client needs for over 30 years which means we probably have experience in situations like yours.

Local & Available

We are not a large institution. We are your neighbors who happen to offer financial expertise. When you call, we answer. When you need someone, we are here.

Different People. Unique Needs

Some people need help accumulating and growing wealth. Others need assistance with the responsibilities wealth creates. No matter your money issues, we will help you find the solutions which best fit

Retire Confident

Retirement is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but we have helped people retire comfortably and confidently for over 30 years. We can help you too.

Get Comfortable

We provide a safe and relaxed environment where you can be comfortable with your money.

Wealth is not determined by money

Wealth is determined by love, happiness, and relationships. The number of dollars in your account does not make you more or less than anyone else.

It is a journey,
not a destination

No matter what your stage of life and career, we can help you. As you change and grow, we adjust so your plan continues to fit your needs.

Putting it all together

All the parts of your life are connected. Getting to know you goes beyond your finances. We want to know your values, hopes, and dreams so your success is not purely financial. A life measured only in dollars can never be rich. 

You are not your neighbor

There is no magic formula that works for everyone. We have the knowledge, experience and tools to help you plan and achieve your goals.


It is our job to explain your money in simple and straight-forward terms, not to impress you with jargon and investment “speak”. You can never ask too many questions. 

It takes two to tango

We provide the know-how; you provide direction and guidance. 

The media provides exposure, not advice

In this age of information overload, there are an over-whelming number of financial opinions. We help you focus on your specific financial goals by using our experience and knowledge as a filter to cut through the constant noise and chatter.

Independence brings freedom

Our “product” is our guidance and advice, not specific investments. We are neutral and transparent when selecting the solutions necessary to implement your plan.

Investing, not trading

It is not flashy, but the long term outlook has stood the test of time. We seek to capitalize on this trend through patience and discipline rather than guessing when to zig and when to zag.

Letter to Clients: 3rd Quarter 2016

Like many of you, my family and I had a wonderful time celebrating the Fourth of July holiday weekend. When I was growing up, the Fourth seemed to be mostly about barbeques, friends, hanging out at the pool, and fireworks. Through my adult years, however, I’ve gained a better appreciation of what Independence Day really means. As Americans we have a degree of freedom that too few today, and even fewer throughout recorded history, have enjoyed. Our freedom came (and continues to come) at a steep price.


Understanding Suitability vs Fiduciary

The financial industry is on the edge of their seats. The Department of Labor is expected to release new rules which would govern the standard under which financial transactions must comply. Currently, the rules require transactions meet a suitability standard and the new rules are expected to require a fiduciary standard.

Letter to Clients: 2nd Quarter 2016

We have some new faces here at DV Financial. Julie Boulden joined the firm in early February to fill the void left by Sue when she and Matt opened the Altoona office. Julie has been quick to learn our systems and has already made herself a valuable asset to both the organization as well as the clients she has had the opportunity to meet. She has a strong aptitude for technology and is working on getting (and keeping) data in the client portals up to date so don’t be surprised if she reaches out to you to help make your client portal experience better. She is also a notary and will notarize documents for you without charge.
