About Eric O'Neill
Before becoming a financial advisor, I grew up in small-town Iowa. I was active in all facets of school (sports, music, academics, etc.). Away from school, there was always work. Whether it was walking beans, bailing hay, cleaning horse stalls, installing fences, building grain bins or just simply counting cows in the deep cold of winter, there was always work to be done. Growing up in a farming community, I learned about work ethic, integrity and the importance of community.
I left the Midwest farm life for the military and a new community. I served in the US Army from 1992 to 1996, then supported DoD contracting efforts for over 20 years after being discharged.
I am married and have four children, two daughters and two sons, and three grandchildren. In my free time, I enjoy the outdoors, hunting, fishing and spending time relaxing by a campfire. I have also obtained a BS in Mathematics, with minor emphasis in Statistics and Business, as well as an Executive MBA.
As a financial advisor, my focus continues to be on the military community. As a service-connected disabled veteran, my emphasis is on serving veteran small-business owners and the military community as a whole. Providing financial advice to those that serve our country, whether in the military or as a civilian, is the reason I chose to become a financial advisor.
