It Doesn't Take a Rocket Scientist, or a PhD, to Build Wealth.
But Just in Case...
Eric has worked in the aerospace industry since 1996. He has a Bachelor's of Science in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Michigan and was the Chief Technical Officer / Chief Engineer / Program Manager for an aerospace company in North Las Vegas. Here, Eric led a team of engineers while they built a privatized space station destined for orbit. Two modules were sent to orbit under Eric’s leadership; these were the first private commercial modules to be successfully sent to space in aerospace history. And, Eric’s final project involved the expansion of the International Space Station. After delivery of the expansion module to NASA (which was successfully deployed, attached, and expanded), Eric retired from the aerospace industry in 2015. Eric was born and bred in Ann Arbor, Michigan and moved to Tucson, Arizona in 1996. Years later, he met and married Joan and the two moved to Las Vegas soon after their vows.
Joan was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and moved to Tucson in 1983. Joan has a Bachelor's of Science from the University of Arizona, Masters of Education emphasis Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University, and a Doctorate in Organizational Psychology, with honors. She has a strong background in psychology with her last position as a licensed behavioral health therapist conducting psychiatric consultations for a hospital network. Since moving to the Vegas Valley, Joan has redirected her professional attention to wealth accumulation strategies. After partnering in a successful financial planning company, Joan began focusing more attention on helping individuals and businesses implement banking strategies into their financial portfolio and investing in real estate.
Following Eric’s retirement from the aerospace industry, the two moved back to Michigan to be closer to family. They brought with them Joan’s focus on banking strategies, purchased an Intelligent Office Franchise and opened another real estate brokerage. Retirement from aerospace did not last long for Eric. In fact, to date, he continues to provide support and consultative services for the aerospace company he led for a decade.
Eric and Joan are blessed to have welcomed a beautiful baby boy, Ryan, in December 2011 and spend most of their spare time enjoying their son. When they actually get enough sleep, all three enjoy golfing (Ryan is still working on his stance), investing, wakeboarding, dirt biking, and playing on their Rhino (four-wheel drive golf cart). But when they are done being active in their outdoor sports, they enjoy coming home and relaxing with their dogs and birds. Whether in front of the television or seeing it live, all three enjoy watching football. Eric is an avid University of Michigan fanatic - Go Wolverines! Although Joan enjoys college football as well, she prefers watching the NFL and is an enthusiastic Eagles fan - Go EAGLES!!! And Ryan - well, he enjoys just cuddling with Mom and Dad watching any football game.
