About Storybook Financial

Storybook Financial is a financial planning firm with tax and investment management services. While we work with everyone, we have learned that real heroes dont wear capes, they wear scrubs. We are passionate about providing all healthcare heroes a dedicated partner in their unique financial and personal challenges.

We are focused on building genuine relationships and helping our young families experience more fulfilling lives. Our goal is to remove the complexities of your financial life and build a foundation of easy to understand solutions. Well bring simplicity, understanding and clarity to your biggest financial concerns so that you can continue to make a positive impact on the world around you.

Inspired by our founders daughter, Mila, who is living with Cystic Fibrosis and truly loves storytime and adventures, weve come to realize that everyone has a unique story to tell and passions to guide them as they work towards reaching their goals. By gaining an understanding of your story and where you come from, we aim to help you live out your dreams and the aspirations you have for yourself and your family. In addition to helping healthcare heros, we are a social enterprise focused on giving back to the cystic fibrosis community.

Work Experience

Kade spent four years as a wealth advisor with a large US accounting firm. He primarily worked with high net worth retirees and business owners by creating complex financial plans and investment strategies. The large downfall is that he was largely working with people that had already successful. Most firms focus on how much money you have because they can charge you more. Kade did not like this. Coming from a background of entrepreneurship, he used the terrible news of his daughter having CF to create Storybook Financial. His company has been designed to focus on financial planning for the young families. Helping healthcare professionals give their lives meaning and working tirelessly to have their finances focused around that meaning.
