How We Work

How We Work

Our reasons for becoming financial professionals are deeply personal. We repeatedly saw many friends and family struggling to find the help they needed to map out their financial future. We are confident that with our understanding of personal finance, coupled with our training as financial professionals, we can help people better prepare for the future. After years in the business, we have developed a reputation for educating individuals in an easy-to-understand manner so they can grasp personal finance and use those concepts to pursue their financial objectives. We feel a commitment to our community.

Our team approach adds perspective to all we do and provides increased benefits to our clients.

Meet Our Team

Stephen Brown



Stephen is both the principal and founder of D.S. Brown Wealth Advisors. He decided to open his firm because he wanted to create a different kind of experience for his clients. He wanted a firm that would feel at home in a small town, where he could see his clients on the street and talk about how their families are doing.  

Stephen brings with him years of experience. Before founding his firm, he began his career with Ameriprise Financial Services before moving into an Vice President role with SunTrust Private Wealth. He then spent several years as the Director of Financial Planning for the Signature Wealth Management Group. While there, he began to specialize in creating customized retirement plans and investment portfolios for affluent families and businesses. 

Outside of the office, Stephen enjoys woodworking and spending time in his yard. He is married to Caroline, with whom he has two children, Sadie and Grant.
