Eric Fitzgerald, CFP®
For Eric family is everything— it’s what keeps him motivated to be a better person each and every day. Eric was born and raised in the historic town of Staunton, Virginia. He grew up with three biological siblings, and four adopted siblings. He admits at times it made home life feel chaotic, but looking back he wouldn’t have it any other way. Eric says he feels “blessed to have had that experience.”
Eric graduated from Carson Newman in 2010 and after earning his degree, he has been working in the financial industry to build his knowledge. Eric is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional. His education and qualifications help him to be knowledgeable, and his personality and view on life are what help him create and maintain healthy client-advisor relationships. He explains, “I truly enjoy helping people pursue their goals by constructing a comprehensive financial plan! I like working with unique situations and It’s more than just money– it’s about a life well planned. ”
Eric and his wife, Jessica, have two young sons who happily occupy the majority of their free time. Eric lights up when he talks about them! He is also quick to brag about his fur-babies: two Old English Bulldogges. Because he likes to stay active, Eric plays in local soccer leagues. However, he commented “keeping up with [his young family] is a workout in itself!” He also enjoys weightlifting and reading fiction.
