Financial Planning and Wealth Management
Providing financial planning and investment management services combined with a faithful commitment to our clients.

Shelly Dodge is a SmartVestor Pro, recommended by Dave Ramsey and the Ramsey Solution organization to help you with retirement, college savings and other investments.

With a SmartVestor Pro, you know that you’re getting the same type of advice that Dave would give. You can trust a SmartVestor Pro because Dave has a 20-person team that works with every SmartVestor Pro to make sure they meet your standards and give great advice.

Working with an investment professional who is part of the SmartVestor™ advertising service cannot guarantee investment success or that you will achieve your financial goals. There can be no assurance that working with a SmartVestor™ Pro will produce better outcomes than working with an advisor not participating in the SmartVestor™ program. Investment professionals participating in the SmartVestor™ program pay advertising fees to have their name and information disseminated to the investing public via the SmartVestor™ program. Neither Ramsey Solutions nor the SmartVestor™ program is affiliated with NEXT Financial Group, Inc. and are not sponsored or endorsed by NEXT Financial Group, Inc.
