Hi, I'm Zack

My name is Zack Van Zant and I am a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ at Financial Solutions.  I love to write about financial topics in terms that are easy for everyone to understand.

My Background:

I have a degree in Financial Planning from Western Kentucky University. I spent half of my college career specializing in Family Studies and the other half in Financial Planning. I started in Family Studies because I wanted to be able to counsel and help guide families through tough times. I later transitioned to studying Financial Planning because it presented an opportunity for me to serve people, develop a personal relationship with them, and to help them reach their goals. 

I have also earned my CFP® designation, which means that I have met the rigorous education, exam, ethics, and experience requirements set forth by the CFP® Board

More About Me:

My wife is an elementary school special education teacher and we live in Louisville, KY.  She reads most of my posts and says that I have too many run-on sentences – I’m trying to improve.

Outside of financial planning, I enjoy basketball, golf, hiking with my wife, and spending time with family in Oldham County and Louisville. My wife and I are members at the East Campus of Sojourn and are members of a community group, as well as serve as small group leaders in the High School ministry.
