“Helping people reach their goals – whether it is helping a married couple getting their financial lives in order or giving peace of mind and support to a divorcee or widow – is what drives me everyday.”
Kevin Henss comes to Inspired Financial with a diverse background with many life experiences. Having grown up on a farm in the Midwest, he was raised with good morals and a strong work ethic. He was a talented percussionist through high school and went on to get a Bachelor’s (Eastern Illinois University) and Master’s in Music Performance (University of Houston).
His career change from music to management brought him to southern California as a Manager for Bowne, the world’s leading financial printer. His familiarity with financial services led him to the financial planning profession.
Kevin is a Certified Financial Planner™ professional and completed the Personal Financial Planning Program at the University of California in Irvine (UCI). He attended the FPA Residency in Lake Arrowhead, a weeklong intensive training program where he worked with some of the top advisors in the country.
Kevin co-led the NexGen group of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) of Orange County for four years and in the past, served on their Board of Directors and other committees. FPA Orange County recognized his tireless commitment and valued contributions by awarding him “Volunteer of the Year” in 2011.
Kevin and his wife, Lauren, attend Saddleback Church and stay busy raising a young family with two daughters and two little Yorkies.
