welcome to mellen money management

Having spent much of his 10-year career advising $44-million in client assets for a large regional bank, Scott Snider broke away from corporate America in 2016 to start Mellen Money Management -- a fee-only financial planning firm that services the Jacksonville, FL and Columbus, OH markets and works with clients across the country regardless of location. Scott began with a goal of offering clients comprehensive financial planning and an emphasis on life transitions and how those key moments impact household finances.  

Upon learning how to navigate the confusing maze of college tuition, financial aid, and student loans, Scott saw an opportunity to help families and young graduates solve this very issue. Mellen Money Management's mission is to ensure you aren't letting the astronomical cost of college manage you. Instead we offer a way to take control both before and after college. It's never too early or too late to implement a plan. 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 site or contact Scott if you would like to learn more.
