Message From The Founder

I started Fedway with a simple mission:
Help federal employees build and preserve wealth. We achieve our mission whenever we help you better understand your federal benefits package and make smarter financial decisions related to saving, investing, and planning for the future. While most of our website focuses on how we do what we do, it is also important to know WHY we do what we do. Growing up in the Washington, DC area, I became intrigued about wealth creation and financial management after witnessing the wealth disparities in my community. I was raised by an elementary school teacher and a Sergeant in the United States Air Force. With that family structure, education and service have always been at the core of my life.

After working in the financial services industry for many years, I decided to create a financial firm dedicated to the federal workforce as a way to serve those who serve. Understanding the complexities of federal benefits can be daunting for many. I wanted to create a competent, transparent, and supportive firm that could simplify the federal benefits program and provide strategies and solutions on integrating those benefits into a holistic financial plan. Wealth is more than just a number. It is about establishing financial independence and experiencing the lifestyle, retirement, or legacy that you envision. We look forward to partnering with you on your wealth journey!
