Adam has more than 20 years of experience in the financial services industry. Adam is also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ (CFP®) professional and Chartered Financial Consultant® (ChFC®).
Adam was born outside of Glacier National Park in Montana. Then at the age of nine moved to the Duluth, Minnesota area when his family started a helicopter aviation business in the area. At the age of 15 Adam started flying and at 16 he attained his private pilot’s license. After high school, Adam served in the Army and in 2nd Ranger Battalion in Washington state . While in the military, Adam learned that counseling soldiers on personal finances could make a huge impact on the lives of people professionally and personal. This grounded and rooted Adam’s passion for financial planning. After being injured in the military, Adam transitioned to work in financial services in the Seattle area and finished college.
Adam has helped families and advisors work with families around the country for over 20 years. Adam and Andy Schelitzche first met over 10 years ago while both were at Waddell and Reed. From the beginning both wanted to work together and became personal friends and now work together professionally as well. At Manifest Wealth Management, we 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 children in Woodbury, Minnesota. As a family they ski, hike, travel and are active in the children’s school as well. The entire family works to volunteer at many nonprofits and community events, usually focused on children, animals, and veterans’ organizations.
