Desmond Henry, CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™
⚠️ I'm not your stereotypical suit and tie advisor. I prefer to wear jeans and crazy socks...so I do (everyday).
Financial planning is not just a job for me. I eat, live, and breathe this stuff. Like seriously, I've tried finding a hobby but I truly love what I do.
Outside the office, you can find me trying to keep up with my kid's activities or planning my next road trip because traveling is imperative to my existence. I have called Topeka, Kansas home since birth. My tuition dollars went to Washburn and K-State; but I'm a die-hard KU 🏀 fan. I'm constantly striving to be a better person than I was yesterday however my bad habits include a love for Mexican food 🌮 and soda. The people that make my life worth living are my wife, Jinni (yes, that's spelled correctly) and my kids- Brice, Damien, and "The Littles" - Delaney and Danika.
Academically, I received my Bachelor of Applied Science degree from Washburn University and a Graduate Certificate in Personal Financial Planning from Kansas State University. I also earned my CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ designation through the CFP® Board.
Professionally, I have been in the financial services industry for 15 years and founded Afflora Financial Life Planning in 2016. I was recognized in 2018 by InvestmentNews as a 40 Under 40 Honoree and was the recipient of Topeka's Top 20 Business Leaders Under 40 award in 2010.
In the community, I serve on the Washburn Rural High School Business Department's Advisory Board, the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library Foundation Board of Trustees, and am active in my church, Topeka Bible Church.
Lastly, I love God and I'm proud to say that- My faith alone has made me a rich man!
