Serving Those Who Serve

At Bellina & Associates, we understand how overwhelming it can be to navigate the world of financial planning and investing.

We are an independent financial services firm assisting clients in securing a future for themselves and their families. We believe there is a need to help families create and preserve wealth, and that financially healthy families help make their communities better places to live and the nation stronger. We provide comprehensive wealth management, including strategic, tactical and family planning. Our top priority is to serve our clients first, last, and always. We believe our clients appreciate the value we offer and our personalized attention.

We also offer a unique perspective to financial planning because we are an Endorsed Local Provider for the Dave Ramsey Show. As Dave's Endorsed Local Provider, my team and I are committed, just as Dave is, to providing Biblically-based, common sense education and empowerment, seeking to give hope to everyone from the financially independent to the financially distressed. Our faith in God, our community, and our country shines through in our interactions with clients because we seek to serve as ethically responsible stewards to our clients.

We strive to learn and understand individual and business financial information, build and maintain long lasting relationships, and provide the highest quality information, service, and products to help bring financial peace.
