Kevin Smith is an Educator with Financial Education Partnership, one of the largest and fastest growing financial education 501(c)(3) nonprofits in the country.
Kevin was born and raised in Binghamton, NY. He has over 10 years of experience in the financial services industry. As his career has evolved, he has developed a passion for helping retirees and people nearing retirement maintain their lifestyles and live out the retirement that they have hoped and planned for.
Kevin is committed to helping people align their finances with their long-term goals, which involves giving them the information they need to make informed decisions. Early in his career Kevin heard a quote that resonated with him, “If you do these four things, you will succeed: Be on time, do what you say you are going to do, say ‘please’, and say ‘thank you.’” He continues to follow that advice today.
Kevin is actively involved in the community and volunteers for the Roanoke Chapter of SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives), which focuses on counseling established small business owners and business start-ups. He has served as the Roanoke SCORE Chapter’s Treasurer since 2011. Kevin is also a member of the Roanoke Valley Breakfast Lions Club, where he received the “Lion of the Year” award, in recognition of outstanding loyalty and service.

Kevin also maintains a passion for fitness and lives a healthy and active lifestyle. You will often find him hiking, playing tennis, and swimming in the ocean.
