However, growing up during the 2008 financial crisis and witnessing its devastating impact on families, people's lives, businesses, and retirement savings; Trevor’s desire to understand more about personal finance and risk mitigation led him to pursue a degree in Economics at Coastal Carolina University. During his time at CCU, Trevor was awarded an opportunity to intern at Carolina Wealth Advisors. During this internship, he gained valuable experience in the personal financial planning realm which coupled with his studies of economics gave him the tools to better understand what he witnessed during 2008.
