Hi, I’m John Ensley

So, who is this John Ensley character anyway? Well, here’s the short  version…

I joined the U.S. Army two weeks after graduating from high school but I was not one of those people who joined up for the college money or because I couldn’t think of anything else to do.

I joined out of a desire to serve and defend America and the ideals of freedom, independence and liberty it stands for. (Ok, when I was 18 I have to admit that I also wanted to jump out of airplanes, shoot big guns and blow things up, like Rambo…)

While there are many tangible reasons I chose to enter the financial services industry I believe the core reason that I do what I do today, is driven from the same desire to serve and defend the American ideals that led me to serve in uniform over three decades ago.

Beyond military service, I’ve been fortunate to enjoy a wide range of professional experiences encompassing corporate sales and management, debt collector, gourmet bakery owner, ski lift operator, sailing instructor, just to name a few…

Today, I’m a series 65 licensed, fiduciary, investment advisor representative and a licensed life insurance and annuity professional in most of the western states. I began independent practice in 2012.

As a fiduciary financial advisor, I believe in a common sense approach that goes beyond simply growing a nestegg. I specialize in creating plans built for tax efficiency, protection from market volatility and that provide income security.

On the personal front, I had an idyllic childhood growing up stomping around the rivers and mountains in rural southern Oregon, with two amazing parents and a younger brother and sister.

Now I live in Vancouver WA with the love of my life, Amber. I have two adult kids and 3 grandkids. I’m an avid outdoorsman, a certified sailing instructor and licensed sailboat captain (and a wannabe kite-surfer!).

I am so fortunate to get up and go to work every day in a business I absolutely love, doing work that truly matters, helping American families and businesses achieve financial security without taking unnecessary risks.

It is my great honor to serve you! Please feel free to reach out to me directly by email at John@wordpress-994628-3496946.cloudwaysapps.com or by phone at 360-281-6495, any time!
