Adam has more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. He is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional and a Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®).
Adam was born outside of Glacier National Park in Montana. At the age of nine, he and his family moved to the Duluth, Minnesota area and started a helicopter aviation business in the area. At the age of 15, Adam took lessons to learn to fly, and at 16 he attained his private pilot’s license. After high school, he served in the 2nd Ranger Battalion of the U. S. Army, based in Washington state. While in the military, he discovered that by counseling soldiers on their personal finances, he could make a huge impact on their lives, both professionally and personally. This ignited Adam’s passion for financial planning. After being injured during his service, Adam transitioned to finishing college and working in financial services in the Seattle area.
Since then, Adam has helped families and advisors work with families around the country for over 20 years. He and Andy Schelitzche first met over 10 years ago while they were at Waddell and Reed. They were quick to become friends and decided they wanted to work together someday as well. At Manifest Wealth Management, Adam and Andy work with independent advisors to serve families through financial planning, offering securities and advisory services through LPL Financial.
Adam lives with his wife, Abby, and their two children in Woodbury, Minnesota. Together, they enjoy skiing, hiking, and traveling. They are active in their children’s school activities as well. The family also works together volunteering at nonprofits and community events, focusing on causes benefiting children, animals, and veterans’ organizations.
