Rick Eicheldinger CFP®, EA
Raised in the friendly confines of Buffalo, NY, Rick graduated from Hobart College before moving to Ohio where he attained a master’s degree from Kent State University. After years as a high school teacher and coach, he found his professional passion for helping families with their financial planning in 2013 and hasn’t looked back.
Rick resides in Canfield, OH with his wife Sharon who was kind enough to adopt his last name. Their two boys, Baron and Klaus, keep them on the move and provide perpetual entertainment while their 150lb dog – a Dogue de Bordeaux named Napoleon – keeps the wolves at bay.
