About Sammons Wealth Management
Meet Stephanie Sammons, CFP®
I’m Stephanie Sammons, Founder/Owner of Sammons Wealth Management. I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ and Wealth Manager with 25+ years of experience guiding my clients to and through retirement.
Prior to founding Sammons Wealth Management, I served as a VP-level Financial Advisor and held senior leadership roles at UBS and Merrill Lynch for 15 years.
Eventually, I walked away from the corporate world in order to work as my authentic self, serve the clients I truly wanted to serve, and be free of corporate objectives that did not align with the best interests of my clients.
My goal was to create a boutique, client-centric advisory firm that was small by design, and grounded in the values of equity, diversity, and inclusion.
My passion for this work is walking life with like-minded clients to help them realize their most important values, goals, and dreams.
Outside of the Office
I’m married to my long-time partner of 17 years, Texas “Super Lawyer” Kay Van Wey. In fact, we share an office together! We have two adult sons Nicholas and Benjamin, and three puppy dogs; Abbey Road (the Chihuahua in charge), Mia (the sweet Chihuahua), and Sadie, the “indifferent” Australian-Shepherd mix.
When I’m out of the office, I spend time on my passion of songwriting, guitar-playing, recording and performing. I’ve studied the art of songwriting in Nashville with some of the greats, and have been recognized by the Dallas Songwriters Association as an award-winning songwriter. You can stream my music wherever you listen!
Kay and I enjoy outdoor activities such as hiking, golf, biking, snowshoeing, and yes, pickleball, to name a few. I’m an avid reader, researcher, technology geek, and a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan!
