It’s not often you find a financial advisor who lives and breathes all things veterinary care.
But as the dedicated husband to a hardworking ER Veterinarian, I found my business approach organically took that focus. As such, Nxt:Gen has been uniquely and meticulously crafted to serve the very specific financial needs of young to mid-career veterinary professionals.
At Nxt:Gen we use our breadth of insight to help veterinarians clarify your goals, and give you permission to explore a future both within and beyond veterinary medicine. Our mission is to focus on your values around money to create a financial roadmap using your income as a tool to achieve your purpose. We help you realize the type of life you want to live, and then show you how you can get there. Because we believe life planning is financial planning done right.
Providing this new wave of financial and life planning, we don’t focus on investments and cookie cutter goal setting, but instead focus on helping you live your best life using money as a mechanism to achieve that goal. We’re on this path with you. We focus on helping you establish money intentions, and guide you towards achieving them.
Ashley Foster, CFP®
I care about all of my clients as humans, and I also care about YOUR clients. As a major animal lover (and fur baby father), I know that when you are given the tools to live your best life, you’ll also be able to do your best work. And that means the animals you help get the best treatment. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Just like you, my wife is also a veterinarian. I see her in all of the people I help. Anna and I are a team, and although she is not technically a part of Nxt:Gen, she is so deeply embedded in its fabric that it would be impossible to imagine the firm without her. Our unique experience and insight helps me give our veterinarian clients a level of care and support that I know is unmatched in the finance industry.
I’m a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, meaning I serve as a fiduciary with a legal obligation to ALWAYS do what is in your best interests. I’m also fee-only, and my costs are completely transparent. You will always know where you stand, with no hidden surprises in the fineprint.
I aim to forge deep and lasting relationships with all the clients I help. I also strive to make working together as easy and enjoyable as possible. I have (at least my wife says this) a great sense of humor and a fun and warm personality with a zest for life and a passion for travel. Anna and I make a point of traveling as much as we can, often taking our cat, François, with us, too. He is our fur-child and integral part of our family. He’s also the Nxt:Gen mascot and honorary CEO. You can see him dotted around the website.
I am an avid soccer player, and a passionate advocate for providing financial literacy education to underserved populations. I volunteer in my community through my Rotary Club, and in my profession by being involved in my local chapter of the Financial Planning Association.
