From his days as a teacher in Puerto Rico to coaching on a Hanover County football field, the theme in Tyler Snow’s professional career and personal life has been helping others make their dreams a reality. He’s pushed students and athletes to their goals with the right mix of education, discipline, and an emphasis on teamwork. “My background has been with people — listening to them, getting to know them, and really caring for them well,” Tyler says.

So it stands to reason why Verus would draft Tyler as an associate financial planner, despite no formal financial planning education (even if he spent years teaching college-level economics and global trade to high schoolers). “Verus saw my background as an opportunity to use the skillsets I have, and those I have acquired, to add to the excellence they’re already delivering,” he says.

Here, Tyler works with clients and financial planners on retirement and estate plans, investment guidance, tax strategies, and overall support of their financial health. He is working towards gaining designation as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® and was promoted to a financial planner after exhibiting a commitment to growth and a superior work product.

During his time at James Madison University, Tyler was captain of the Duke’s football team and named to the Academic All-Conference all four years in Harrisonburg. He says success in college athletics takes principles such as discipline, time management, communication, and integrity. “And it’s not always easy, and demands perseverance,” Tyler says. “These are good lessons for you to consider when you look at your financial future, and they are principles I use to help clients reach their goals.”

The Snow family, Tyler, his wife Anne, and their two boys, worship and are active at City Church in Richmond.
