Ryan Steitz

Ryan brings a wealth of experience in educating and supporting people in their pursuit of a more fulfilling life. Through his own life experiences, Ryan understands the positive impact of financial literacy, which is why he thoroughly enjoys helping members set and achieve their life financial goals.


Before transitioning to the world of financial services, Ryan taught in the Park Hill School District for eleven years – most recently as a middle school social studies teacher. In addition to both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in education, Ryan attended Brite Divinity School at Texas Christian University where he spent 15 years serving an exceptionally diverse group of people in churches throughout the suburban, rural and urban communities in Texas.


Ryan lives in Parkville with his wife, who is a prominent clergyperson in Kansas City, and their daughter who is an involved student at Park Hill South High School. Their son, Jacob, attends the University of Missouri. In his free time, Ryan loves to cook, entertain family and friends, and cheer on our Kansas City sports teams, especially the Kansas City Current.
