Tina Hallmark – Registered Securities Principal

Originally from Carthage, I came back home to build my business, after graduating from Missouri State University. In the business since 2006, I have worked with mutual funds and variable/fixed annuity companies which helped me gain additional experience to better help direct my clients on the products that manage their needs. I am client focused on individual future goals; not product driven. Before I graduated from Missouri State University, I realized my calling to help others by offering the benefit of my education, knowledge of the industry and professional training to help you pursue your financial goals and leave a legacy for future generations. In my spare time, I like to travel, volunteer in the community with my church and many other various organizations. Most importantly, I spend my time with my husband, Jeff, and daughter, Jovalina as well as surrounding myself with wonderfully grounded friends and family.
