A quote from Bart- "After years of teaching, I am thrilled to be joining Ken Zahn's team. His philosophy, content, and focus is just what I've been looking for as a veteran CFP® Live Review Instructor. I try to keep my classes informed, engaged, and entertained...... in that order of priority. You will get a lot of references to sports, movies, and rock n roll music (along with some corny jokes) in my classes though!"
Bart is a member of FPA Orange County.
