welcome to mellen money management

Hi, I'm Scott Snider.  After spending much of my 10-year career advising $44-million in client assets for a large regional bank, I decided it was time to break away from corporate America and start a fee-only financial planning firm named in memory of my Grandparents. Mellen Money Management embodies their generosity and serve-first values.  Today my firm works with clients in the Jacksonville, FL and Columbus, OH markets and offers virtual meetings for those that live on the other side of the country.

Mellen Money Management provides investment management and comprehensive financial planning, with an emphasis on understanding the impact of key life transitions on your money.  In addition, we specialize in helping young professionals and families navigate the confusing maze of college tuition, financial aid, and student loans.  It's our mission to ensure you are not letting the astronomical cost of college manage you. More importantly, we believe this problem can't be solved in a vacuum and should be balanced with the many other financial goals that compete for your money. Please explore our website, check out our blog, or contact Scott to learn more.
