Ashley Parks, CFP®
Ashley Parks, CFP® began her interest in financial planning at a very early age. Ashley started working at age 14 with the mentality of if you want to buy something, you get a job and work for it. She started saving her money which helped her to buy her first car and get started on a solid savings strategy.
At Texas A&M, Ashley pursued a BBA in Finance and later went on to SMU for her Graduate Certificate in Financial Planning. Ashley’s passion is helping families make educated financial decisions to reach their goals.
