Why The College Funding Coach?
My professional career as a teacher for 13 years gave me a well-rounded perspective on how to serve and educate individuals. Becoming a College Funding Coach has given me the opportunity to utilize a great deal of the knowledge that I have acquired throughout my professional and personal experiences.
I am an educator by heart and enjoy enlightening adults on their options and opportunities when it comes to their family’s future. I have learned to find connections with many different people from various backgrounds and situations.
Area of Focus for LKS Workshop: Connecticut public and private schools, as well as medium to large organizations and community groups
A Little More About Chris
Background: I was an educator for 14 years teaching Health and Physical Education. During my physical education days, I also coached wrestling at the middle and high school levels, which propelled me to become a state-level wrestling official in Connecticut.
I made the decision to transition into the financial services industry because I realized that my income as an educator was not going to enable me to pay for both of my daughters’ college educations and still have enough to retire with a comfortable lifestyle. I have an intrinsic motivation to help families in guiding them to a happy and prosperous future.
Personal Life: I have resided in Oxford, CT for 22 years. I live with my wife, Michelina, and daughter, Giovanna. My oldest is currently attending school in Tampa, FL.
Besides officiating, I enjoy sharing my personal time through working out and pursuing outdoor hobbies with my family. We enjoy hunting, fishing, and gardening together. In addition, my daughter, Giovanna, and I make wine together.
Often, the greatest pleasures we find are sharing fun times with family and friends.
