Bruner StephensonAssociate Financial Advisor

Born and raised in Dothan, AL. I earned my Finance and Political Science degree from Auburn University after moving to Birmingham.

I went on to work with Morgan Stanley for several years and was later transferred to the World Trade Center where I worked and trained as a retirement and income planning specialist. After several years there I moved back to Birmingham and worked as the Planning Specialist for the state.

After many years with Morgan Stanley, I transitioned to the bank channels where I specialized in retirement and income planning.

With over 17 years in the retirement planning industry, my primary focus is to help families reach their retirement goals. I currently hold an insurance, Series 7, Series 63, and Series 65 license.

When I'm is not in the office helping clients, I enjoy volunteering for the animal rescue, golfing, fishing, or watching college
