I started Student Loan Planner in October 2016 after helping my wife and her friends figure out their six figure student loans. I used to be a bond trader, so I took my excel heavy skill set and built models for how to save money paying back student debt. When my wife and I tackled her debt from med school, there were not a lot of resources out there for professionals like her. Most of the sites that did exist just wanted us to refinance so they could earn a commission. All of our team members either hold the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) or Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®) designations. We all have a passion for conquering debt's hold on your life and mental energy.
