Rob is a Southwest Pilot and retired Air Force Lieutenant Colonel. He grew up working on his family’s ranch in Colorado and went to high school in Alaska. In 2000, he graduated from the United States Air Force Academy, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Legal Studies. Rob has served over twenty years in the Air Force, ten years on active duty, and over ten in the Reserves. During his military career, he flew the C-130 while stationed in Germany and the KC-10 in California. Rob has accumulated over 700 hours of combat-flying time and took part in multiple operations. He was hired by Southwest Airlines in 2013 and in 2016 became a staff officer at USNORTHCOM’s Domestic Operations Division. While holding this position as an air planner, Rob helped areas recover from hurricane disasters; specifically, he was called to active duty to aid in recovery efforts following Hurricane Maria. While at the Air Force Academy, Rob discovered his enthusiasm for the study of personal finance and investing. Rob is excited to combine his passion for helping and protecting others with his enthusiasm for personal finance. This nexus culminated in 2020 with Rob passing the Series 65 Uniform Investment Advisor Law Exam and joining the Leading Edge team as a fiduciary advisor. A fiduciary’s role comes naturally to him as he enjoys helping people whether that benefits him or not. Rob knows the tremendous trust clients place in their financial advisors, and it is his goal to grow that trust through the highest level of transparency and integrity. In his personal life, Rob married “up” to the love of his life and has been married for 18 years. He is overwhelmingly proud of his son, to whom he recently donated a kidney.
