Justin Pritchard helps consumers navigate the world of personal finance.
Justin began working in the financial services industry in 1999, when almost nobody was linking checking accounts and moving money online. He helped people use the first generation of online bill-pay services and walked internet newbies through the process of setting up payment accounts and transferring money online. At the same time, he helped them keep an eye out for fees. He now runs Approach Financial Planning in Montrose, CO.
Justin is a ghost author for financial topics, and he wrote The Everything Improve Your Credit Book (March 2007). He has worked behind the scenes on other financial publications as a technical reviewer and editor. He has been interviewed on banking topics by online and print media such as Bankrate.com, Forbes.com, CUNA Home & Family Finance, Men's Health, The Sacramento Bee, and others.
Justin has an MBA and MS in Information Systems from the University of Colorado. He completed the CFP® education program through The College for Financial Planning. Justin went on to pass the CFP® exam in 2009.
