Garrett Gould, CFP®, CFA, EA is a financial planner who loves long-term tax management and creating ideas that will help you reach your definition of financial independence.

Garrett grew up in Kansas City, MO and is currently living on the other side of the state in St. Louis, MO. However, he does have aspirations of living in either Seattle and Austin (two income tax-free states!).

Garrett has two cats – which he swears is less work than having just one. He also enjoys a casual sand volleyball match, debating tax policy, and international travel.

Garrett spends most of his free time working “on” his business (not “in” his business – big difference for any entrepreneurs out there) and would like to build Halyard Financial up to 60 clients that he truly enjoys working with.
