Founder and President
Andrew is the Founder and President of Planning Across the Spectrum. Andrew is a passionate advocate for autism awareness in his community. He’s also very passionate about his work as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and has always worked toward helping his clients gain financial security now and for their future. Putting both of these interests together, Andrew was inspired to start Planning Across the Spectrum whose core mission is to provide a service creating financially secure paths for individuals and families with special needs.
Andrew understands the difficulty and stigma that many individuals face with special needs. Having received his Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis as an adult, many questions about the struggles he had experienced both growing up and as a young adult were answered. Through this experience, Andrew knew that he wanted to do something to work with the special-needs community to provide answers and security in the financial world to anyone who could benefit from his experience. He took time to educate himself in any and everything he could to help in this underserved community and now dedicates himself to aiding within it.
Utilizing his education, certifications, and passion for the financial world along with his personal experiences and knowledge which one can only obtain with this first-hand experience, Andrew provides a unique planning perspective for those with special needs, caregivers, and their families. While most people claim they understand what someone is going through, Andrew has lived it. He has experienced the medical, social, educational, legal, vocational, and relational issues that come with being a member of the autism community. Due to this, he can now provide specialized aid and knowledge to his clients, and most importantly, he understands that every situation is unique.
At Planning Across the Spectrum, Andrew takes pride in the fact that he founded a company designed for more than just Financial Planning. He created a resource to provide expert guidance and valuable resources for life decisions that are either unknown or not easily accessible. The Planning Across the Spectrum approach aids clients in navigating the realities of living in a world that can be complicated to pilot for someone with special needs.
The passion Andrew has for financial planning has resulted in numerous degrees and certifications. Andrew earned a Master of Science in Financial Services (MSFS) has achieved the distinction of being a Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP™). He also has certifications as a Behavioral Financial Advisor(BFA™), Chartered Special Needs Consultant (ChSNC®), and an Associated Estate Planner (AEP®) among his other designations. He is active with Autism Services & Resources Connecticut as a member of their board. As a business owner, husband, and father Andrew does not get much spare time, but when he does, he enjoys tinkering with electronics, travel, and bike rides. He resides in the Farmington Valley with his wife, daughter, and two dogs.
