Graeme S. Woods, ChFC®
Financial Planner, President
Graeme lives with his wife and child in the Central PA Susquehanna Valley area. His wife, Julie, is a physician at Geisinger Medical Center in Danville. The baby, who turned 4 this June, heads up the division of play and fun at her local pre-school. As a family they enjoy hiking and bike riding. Julie is an avid “I Love Lucy” fan and loves baking and spending time reading to their daughter. Graeme likes to tinker in his workshop, plays golf, and loves to swim. Since moving to the community they are on a search for a home church and for ways they can become involved in the success of the community. Currently he participates as President of the local Danville Centennial Lions Club, as a volunteer on the financial advisory committee for the Bloomsburg Theater Ensemble, and as a Board member of the Danville Child Development Center.
Graeme spent a large part of his youth as Boy Scout where he earned the rank of Life Scout and became a Junior Assistant Scout Master before leaving for college. He is a Veteran having served in the U.S. Army as a Civil Affairs Sergeant, linguist, and Parachutist. He had one overseas deployment in 2003 and 2004 to Bosnia where he supported the mission by helping local farmers develop strategies to help them compete in the international market. One, not so notable, notable distinction is that he earned the Army Driver and Mechanics badge for driving 500 hours in a combat zone with no incidents (on record).
Graeme entered the financial planning industry in 2010 as an investment advisor representative through his wholly owned firm. The goal was to help individuals and families start, grow, and preserve the wealth they work so hard for and deserve.
