As a wealth advisor, Kristin Poole works with clients to deliver on Buckingham Strategic Wealth’s promise of true wealth management. Kristin has extensive experience overseeing the firm’s wealth advisory teams across the country and has worked throughout her advisory career to deliver personalized service that exceeds clients’ expectations. In recognition of her investment expertise, she was named to the firm’s Investment Policy Committee in 2014.
She began her career as a high school literature teacher in Cuernavaca, Mexico. Her time in the classroom taught Kristin two important lessons about herself: she loved teaching but did not want to spend the rest of her career in a classroom. She shared this with two lifelong teachers, her parents, who responded with valuable advice, “You don’t have to be a teacher to find ways to teach.”
Drawing from this advice, Kristin has set her goals on helping provide her clients with an experience that is driven both by education and service.
Kristin holds a bachelor’s degree in Spanish and English from University of Missouri-Columbia and an MBA in International Business from Saint Louis University. She has taken the opportunity for additional study throughout her life in China, Mexico and Costa Rica.
She has been involved in the Saint Louis University Alumni Association, serving as the current president of the International Institute and as a former board member for the business school. Other community involvement has included speaker and volunteer of Habit for Humanity and mentor for SLU Business School. Kristin is a board member for Healing Hearts bank, a local micro-lending program, and a volunteer for the Kids Community Closet. Both are National Council of Jewish Women programs, of which she is a member.
