I started C. B. Bond Financial Planning after a 15-year career in engineering. Being analytical and number-oriented translates well to finance and investments. At the same time, financial planning provides a way to directly and positively impact the lives of clients. As a career-changer myself, some of the most rewarding client engagements have been ones in which I help a client make a transition to a more satisfying career or better work-life balance.

My wife Mary is a retired Registered Nurse/travel nurse. She is now using her sewing skills developed over a lifetime to start a sewing business on Etsy.  We journey together and are full-time RVers.  We may visit and reside in several states in a given year. Through this, I have developed experience with both the financial and non-financial aspects of life on the road and have incorporated this experience into the travel worker specialty in my practice.

I value education and have invested the time to get the credentials that provide a solid base of knowledge for what I do. I update and keep current on technical knowledge and industry trends and practices through continuing education programs and by attending professional conferences.

Outside of work, I enjoy fitness and outdoor activities including hiking, cycling and sailing.
