Michael Deschenes is a graduate of Southwest Baptist University, with a degree in Economics and Finance. He grew up near St. Louis, speaking both English and French at home, due to his Canadian parents. Having experienced the premature death of a parent, Michael dedicated himself to helping others make plans that work in varying circumstances.
Upon graduating, and after researching other firms, he was drawn to the team at Strategic Financial Concepts through multiple referrals. “I love the process-oriented approach that SFC uses. The benefits of true, comprehensive financial planning over product-selling are evident and highly valued by both clients and advisors,” said Michael.
The “strategic alliance” between advisors at SFC is one of Michael’s favorite parts of the firm. “There are specialists in all areas of finance just doors down from me. We all love to sit with clients and other advisors to share different knowledge and strategies.”
As a young professional, Michael is an active member of many organizations in the community including The Network, Chamber of Commerce, Rotaract, and Springhill Baptist Church. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and dog, playing music, reading, playing disc golf, traveling, and filling out the WSJ Crossword.
Though much of his work is done remotely with clients in various states, Michael’s office is located in Springfield, Missouri. He can be reached at 417.823.3810.
