Reis, a Minnesota native, moved to Colorado at a young age and spent most of his childhood growing up on a ranch in the small town of Crestone in the San Luis Valley. Immediately after graduating from high school in Monument, CO, Reis became a Master Certified Mercedes Benz Technician until he joined the United States Army in 2006.
Reis proudly served our country in the United States Army for six years as a Production Control Non-Commissioned Officer. During his time with the Army, Reis was responsible managing a team whose duties included maintenance and major repair for a fleet of special operations helicopters, including inventory management and supply logistics across three countries. While serving with the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (Airborne) at Fort Lewis, in Washington, Reis met his wife Briana.
After Reis honorably left the military, he and Briana moved back to Colorado so that they could both attend Colorado State University in Fort Collins. In 2017, Reis received his Bachelor’s degree in Personal Financial Planning. It was during his undergraduate work that Reis started working in the financial services business. He worked as an office manager and then moved into production full time upon graduation. Within the Financial Services profession, Reis has worked with an insurance company, a financial advisory company where he specialized in working with public school employees, and also an investment company. During this time, Reis earned his Series 7 license as well as his Life, Accident & Health insurance licenses.
These experiences led Reis to the conclusion that an operations and support role was how he could add the most value to a team, and in service to their clients. He also wanted to have an integral part in building something new, lasting and with a strong community presence. It was this search that led him to be introduced to Justin and the vision of Impact Financial Strategies. He was hooked. And after several sessions getting to know each other, Reis joined the firm upon its launch in 2019.
Outside the office, Reis’s primary focus and energy is given to his beautiful daughter Jacklyn, who was born in 2018. When not doting on his girls, Reis is engaged fully in the Colorado life style and enjoys snowboarding, golf, and anything outdoors.
