David R. Uhlmann | Certified Financial Planner | Synergos Advisory

David R. Uhlmann, CFP®, MSF, APMA®, AAMS®

As a STEM professional, you prefer to manage your own finances, but you want to feel confident you are on the right track.  When you partner with Synergos, we provide you with ongoing financial planning, guidance, and education so you can make informed decisions to help you align your financial resources with your aspirations.

As for me, I enjoy working with people, numbers and technology. Being a financial planner allows me the pleasure of working with all three. As a financial planner over the past 15 years, I have leveraged my diverse experiences and background in finance to help a number of entrepreneurs, business owners, executives, technologists and researchers achieve the quality of life they aspired to.

Allow me to do the same for you.
