Hi everybody! I am Dr. Ryan Koopmans, and I am a Financial Planner at Vincere Wealth Management. I am a Veterinarian and have practiced for over 10 years in small animal clinical medicine. A few years ago, after some advice from a colleague, I decided to switch my focus to financial planning. I have always been passionate about financial planning, so I got my Masters in personal financial planning and am now working with Vincere Wealth Management. I completed the CFP® curriculum and will sit for the CFP® exam in November 2022.
My better half and I have two young daughters. My wife is a Veterinarian as well, and we have lived in the California Bay area since 2016. I grew up in the Midwest, specifically Nebraska, and I am still very proud of that. Go, Big Red! I did live in Connecticut for a few years as well, just after veterinary school. My wife and I enjoy camping, boating, swimming, going to Lake Tahoe, and fun activities with the girls. We love to travel and experience new things as a family. Planning our next vacation or family outing is really what makes us tick.
I played soccer forever and still really enjoy watching, and recently my girls started playing as well, so it is fun to see the sport come full circle for me. I really hope to coach them one day as well. I played a lot of sports as a kid and always enjoyed being a part of a team.
I am also an officer in the Army Reserve, where I have served for over 20 years. I am certainly on the tail end of my career in the Army, but it has been so much fun being part of something bigger than myself.
I think the most rewarding part of financial planning is the ability to change people's lives. I know it is cheesy and corny, but if done right, financial planning can allow you to reach your goals sooner, live a higher quality of life, and experience what you have always wanted to. To me, financial planning is exciting and interesting, and I feel passionate about what I am doing again. I love learning about the different ways our finances can be used to accomplish our goals. There are so many ways we can help people manage their financial lives. Over the years, I have come to see the value in working with professionals, so thank you for taking the time to learn more about me, Vincere Wealth Management, and I hope I get the opportunity to learn more about you soon. Take care!
