About Me

I am a problem-solver and a teacher at heart.

I founded Krehbiel Financial after 15 years in marketing and engineering management at Harris and Intersil, and 11 years teaching physics at West Shore Jr./Sr. High School in Melbourne, FL. Throughout my career, problem-solving, interpersonal skills, and teaching have been keys to my success in working with other people.

One day on the radio, I heard Dave Ramsey say, “You want a financial advisor who has the heart of a teacher”, and I thought, “That’s me!”

I have an engineering degree from Caltech and a masters in management from M.I.T. I am a Certified Financial Planner (TM) professional and a member of NAPFA (National Association of Personal Financial Advisors) and the XY Planning Network. I also write financial advice and other answers on Quora,com (because that is also an opportunity to teach, and both my kids work for Quora!)

When I am not helping people accomplish their goals with their money, I enjoy road biking, bike tourism, traveling, meals with friends, and being a member of Church in the Wild, in Melbourne, FL.
