Klemm_9696Ryan Klemm joins Yeske Buie as a Financial Planning Resident after earning an honors B.S. in Finance, cum laude, in Virginia Tech’s CFP® Certification Education Track. Ryan was an active member of Virginia Tech’s FPA® student chapter, where his interest in the financial planning profession was fostered. He spent his final two collegiate summers in financial planning internships, first as a Wealth Management intern at Merrill Lynch in Washington, D.C. and then as a Financial Planning intern with Pegasus Financial in Chantilly, VA. He used both of these opportunities to deepen his understanding of the profession in preparation for his career.

Born and raised in the DC Metro area, Ryan will be working in Yeske Buie’s Vienna, Virginia office. Ryan is a recent member of the FPA National Capital Area where he looks forward to becoming involved with the organization as well as meeting the network of planners surrounding the D.C. Area. Ryan has also become a member of the NexGen Community where he is excited about engaging with other young planners looking to make their impact on the profession. While becoming increasingly involved in these associations he is also very excited to begin preparations for the CFP® Exam.

Outside of the office Ryan enjoys exploring the seemingly endless knowledge that books and research can provide as well as the pleasures of an active lifestyle. In his additional free time, Ryan enjoys time spent with his family and friends.

Client Focus: As a Financial Planning Resident, Ryan works with the rest of the Financial Planning Team to ensure that clients’ financial planning needs are met and to help them achieve their Live Big® goals.

Current Update: Ryan is in the home-stretch waiting to sit for his CFP® Exam with the majority of his free time being consumed with mastering the content necessary to pass. In the rare instance that his time isn’t spent learning material, he takes advantage of opportunities to watch the Washington Capitals play with friends and family.

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” ~Marianne Williamson
