Mark was born in Arkansas, but moved to Wichita, Kansas at the age of six in 1988, and has been a Wichita resident ever since. He graduated Valedictorian from Wichita Heights High School, and attended Oklahoma Christian University where he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Accounting. Mark also went on to receive his MBA from Wichita State University.
Prior to joining SFC, Mark enjoyed a dedicated 14-year career in the corporate income tax software industry where he spent eight years as a Tax Analyst in the development of tax software, working closely with both tax professionals and taxpayers. He then served as an Account Manager for the Sales and Use Tax Compliance customers of the business for six years. Over the past several years Mark has also taught numerous online business courses as an Adjunct Professor for Barclay College of Haviland, Kansas.
As a young adult Mark became a client of SFC, where he saw the value in planning for his financial future as early on in life as possible, and becoming more educated about how to “make your money work for you, rather than you working for money.” Mark has a strong desire to serve his clients by helping them to attain security and financial freedom through making wise, educated and holistic decisions about their financial futures.
Mark, his wife, and four daughters are active members of the Northside Church of Christ in Wichita. He likes to spend his free time with his family, watching, playing, and coaching sports, as well as hunting, fishing and traveling.
Mark is licensed to sell insurance and annuity products in KS, MO, and OK, and is registered for securities in KS, MO, MS, OK, and TX.
