John joined the Synergy team through a summer internship program in the summer of 2017. At that time John was looking to increase his understanding of financial planning and investments. Since then, he has gained extensive experience throughout the Synergy organization and is a value-added team member.
Synergy has a unique relationship with John. During the winter months he continues to work away from Synergy as a professional hockey player. John played his college hockey for Cornell University before moving on to play professionally throughout North America. His experience being a part of diverse locker rooms across the country has taught him valuable communication skills which will be an essential skill for him to leverage in working with future clients. John earned a Bachelor of the Arts Degree in Applied Economics and Management from Cornell University, while also leading Cornell’s hockey team as a Captain in both his Junior and Senior seasons.
John and his wife Rosanna reside in Estero, Florida where they enjoy the sunshine every day. Both John and Rosanna are originally from Michigan, Grosse Pointe and Houghton (Upper Peninsula) respectively, so the sunshine is making up for all the snowy days from their youth. Johns hobbies include playing golf, going to the beach, and continually learning the financial planning business in its entirety. John holds a series 65 as well as his Health, Life, and Variable annuities license and he is currently studying to obtain his CFP (Certified Financial Planner) designation.
