I have been in the insurance & financial services business for 32 years, wow!  I was the owner of Ryan Insurance & Financial Services, Inc for 23 years.  We were an exclusive agent for Nationwide for the first 12 years and then Independent agent for the next 11 years.  I sold the agency 4 years ago.  For those 23 years I also was licensed with my Series 6 and sold annuities, mutual funds and life insurance.  3 years ago I left Nationwide Securities and joined Prudential Advisors. 

Present day I own my own Prudential Advisors firm in Daytona Beach.  I love what I do and it’s never felt like a job from day one.  I really enjoy helping people.  The majority of my time is spent working on income planning for my clients.
