Lodestar Financial Planning


David Fulton is a financial planner with Lodestar Financial Planning, a financial planning practice providing hourly and on-going financial planning and advice in Colorado and across the country.

David provides financial advice and coaching to individuals and their families from all walks of life. He does not set minimum income or net worth requirements to engage in financial planning, investment consultation, or portfolio services.

As the son of a bush pilot, David spent a unique and exciting childhood overseas in Africa and Haiti. After returning to the United States, he decided to pursue a career of adventure and service and earned an appointment to the United States Military Academy at West Point.  

Upon graduation, he was assigned as an officer in the United States Army where he served a successful and rewarding career as an Armor Officer, commanding Soldiers at all levels from Platoon to Battalion, including four combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan.  During his 20-year military career he also served at the Department of State in Washington D.C. and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) in Colorado Springs, giving him a broad and unique insight into the Department of Defense and Federal Service.

In 2014, at only 4 months old, David’s youngest son was diagnosed with a severe and catastrophic form of epilepsy called Dravet Syndrome.  Through the struggles of caring for a medically fragile child, he was forced to learn how to navigate the complexities of coordinating insurance, government benefits, and the many financial pressures facing parents of children with disabilities. His passion for solving these tough problems eventually led to his pursuit of a financial planning career where he could continue serving others while capitalizing on his many experiences.

David has earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point and a Master of Arts in Economics from Vanderbilt University. He is a proud veteran and special needs parent and lives in Colorado Springs, Colorado with his wife Whitney and sons Avery, Bennett, and Hugh.
