COVID-19 UPDATE

KDP Wealth Management Update

We understand that you may have concerns regarding the current market volatility, and we encourage you to consider the following actions:

·        Take a step back to revisit your long term goals – has anything changed in your  5-10-20 year time horizon?

·        Make sure your cash reserves are strong and leverage government aid if it is needed. Do your best to not pull from your investments. Once you act, market losses are realized and you may miss out in participating in the recovery.

·        Review and update your beneficiaries, wills, and health care directives.

·        Review your asset allocation and diversification – This may bring you peace of mind to know not all your eggs are in one basket. Well diversified multi asset accounts were built to weather volatility.

We believe that excellent communication will be vital as we continue to work through the changes that we are facing in our daily lives, both personal and professional. Do not hesitate to reach out to our team if you have any questions or concerns.

Know that we are always working behind the scenes to stay on top of this novel event and its impact on our clients, and most importantly, know that we are here for you!

OUR TEAM

Nancy J. Sash, CFP®

Nancy Sash is the Director of Financial Services at KDP Wealth Management, LLC. Nancy was introduced to financial services at an early age.  Her father, a career firefighter, started a credit union specifically for police and firefighters. Nancy watched as her father took on this role and thrived. She remembers her father telling her that she could achieve anything she set her mind to, if she was just willing to do the research.

Nancy got her start in banking, working as a Mortgage Officera Business Banking Officer, and as a Branch Manager. Nancy recalls encountering widows who were living solely off Social Security. Oftentimes they would come to the bank and find that they had run out of money only halfway through the month. The faces and stories of these individuals have contributed to Nancy’s passion for helping others to create something better for themselves and their families. 

While in banking, Nancy noticed people would go to specialists such as bankers, insurance agents, or stock-brokers and receive advice based on each particular specialty, versus holistic planning.  Nancy recognized the necessity of looking at the whole picture and building a personalized financial plan that truly aligns with a client’s goals and what’s important to them.

Combining Nancy’s knowledge as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM practitioner and a RETIREMENT INCOME CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL® with the tax expertise of a Certified Public Accountant has proven to be a winning combination. As a team, KDP is able to build tax-optimized wealth management strategies with the added focus on keeping more money in our clients’ pockets after taxes.

Nancy and her husband, Carl, have three children, and one adorable grandchild. Nancy is also a proud dog mom to an Australian Shepherd and two cats, one who thinks she’s a dog.   Nancy’s has a competitive spirit and fell head over heels for the game of pickleball. She’s completely addicted to the sport and loves to travel for tournaments and talk strategy with anyone who will listen.

Kristina West

Kristina West joined the KDP Wealth Management team in 2018 as a Financial Services Administrator, with almost no experience in finance. From a very young age, Kristina felt a persistent need to help others. She recalls an experience from her childhood where she witnessed an elderly man sitting outside of a local restaurant with a sign and with the help of her mother, she purchased a meal for the man. The look of pure gratitude that she saw in his eyes that day have remained with her throughout the years, and since that moment, Kristina realized the absolute joy and sense of fulfillment that can be found in helping others.

Upon completion of her bachelor’s degree at Portland State University, Kristina worked in security and case management in a re-entry center, helping federal inmates learn to re-integrate into society after serving a prison sentence. Among her various responsibilities there, Kristina facilitated a course for the residents each week, providing support and discussion opportunities regarding the many challenges a long-time inmate faces during the transition process. The experience Kristina gained during her employment at the re-entry center was incredibly valuable, however a need to be closer to her family led her to Southern Oregon.

After continuing her work in social services in the Rogue Valley, Kristina decided she wanted to take her career in a different direction, still focusing on her yearning to make a difference in the lives of those around her. With zeal and persistence, Kristina pursued an opportunity to be employed with KDP Wealth Management. Kristina is absolutely thrilled to be a part of the KDP team, and loves the opportunity to learn and grow within the financial services industry. She recently obtained her insurance license and is looking forward to continuing to advance her career with on-the-job learning, as well as further outside education.

When she is not working, Kristina loves to spend time with her husband and high-school sweetheart, Danny, and their two dogs, Sully and Wyatt. Kristina is part of a very close-knit family and jumps at any opportunity to visit with her parents, sisters, niece and nephews.
