Fresh out of the Naval Academy, Chris headed to Pearl Harbor for the USS CHOSIN.

Upon return in 2006, Chris was selected to train as a nuclear engineer and would later help build and commission the USS GEORGE H.W. BUSH in Norfolk, VA.
With his mom passing while he was deployed, he came to realize and value the importance of proper personal financial planning and building a legacy.
