Why did Stephen become a Financial Advisor?

"I do not know from where my interest in finances sprang, but it was strong enough that in my early teens I earned the Personal Finances merit badge, which was one of my favorite merit badges I attained on the way to becoming an Eagle Scout.  That same interest led me to study accounting and law with an emphasis on tax.  A career as a financial advisor has been a marvelous way to combine my skills with the lesson I learned in the Boy Scouts of helping people."

Attracted to financial planning at a very early age, Stephen Dart’s path to his profession had already begun to form by seventh grade, when he earned the Personal Finances merit badge as a Boy Scout. Stephen attended the University of Washington, where he gravitated to accounting as an undergraduate and tax in law school. He began his professional career in the tax-planning department of Touche Ross in 1980, became director of special projects at Vacation Internationale, Inc. in 1988, and subsequently formed Savings Growers, Inc. A partner and cofounder of Conlon Dart Wealth Management, Stephen joined EP Wealth Advisors in 2019, where he continues to help clients achieve their goals. Stephen lives in Seattle with his wife and two teenage daughters. Outside of work, he finds special delight in exercising his artistic talent in the kitchen, helping his wife Lisa in the garden and enjoying the beautiful Northwest while hiking, skiing and fishing.
