Ross Hanson has a more unusual background than most Financial Advisors in that he was a Doctor of Physical Therapy for seven years before transitioning to the financial services sector. But when it comes to understanding clients and their goals, Ross is the perfect man for the job!
Ross has been interested in investing since his high school Economics class, so when he decided to leave the healthcare industry, he got right in the trenches by job shadowing his father-in-law (also a Financial Advisor). Educating his clients is at the forefront of everything he does, and he’s passionate about understanding his clients’ needs, thoughts, and behaviors to help determine how he can best assist them on a financial level.
Ever a busy person, Ross’ free time is mainly spent with his wife and children on their family farm southeast of Vinton. This includes getting his hands dirty with crops like corn and soybeans, and practicing sustainable farming practices with technology.
Ross is also a firefighter with the Vinton Volunteer Fire Department and a member of the Blessed Hope Community Church. His hobbies include cooking, outdoor activities like hunting, fishing and camping, and woodworking. He’s a huge fan of the Iowa State Cyclones, Green Bay Packers, and the St. Louis Cardinals.
