During this career shift, Park was briefly a client with Teeple Wealth Management before joining the firm as an advisor.
At TWM, Park has been able to use his array of experience to give him insight into helping his clients develop financial plans. Despite this, Park most enjoys educating clients with the heart of a teacher, leaving them better equipped than before to make important financial decisions.
