Snider Financial Group


Sheldon is extremely passionate about helping families and their children with special needs. He connects with them on a personal level because his youngest daughter has Down syndrome. He knows the extra demands that this puts on families as well as their need for high quality planning.

Sheldon understands the advocacy needed in providing for children with special needs. He has organized a network of professionals who serve these families and is regularly asked to speak at school districts and organizations such as the Washington State Fathers Network, and the Issaquah, Tahoma and Kent School Districts.

Sheldon has taken a unique path to arrive in the financial services industry. After graduating from California Maritime Academy with a B.S. Degree in Nautical Industrial Technology, he worked in the industrial marketplace for many years.

Ultimately, his love for client service led him to a career in financial services as a Protection Specialist with a major fraternal insurer; however, he found he couldn’t fully service his clients with their limited insurance options. Sheldon enjoys helping families who are planning for retirement as well as business owners who need advice on creating an exit plan while protecting the business they have built. Starting in 2012 Sheldon built his business at Pacific Capital Resource Group, Inc. in Bellevue, WA as a Financial Advisor, establishing niches. Sheldon then received an opportunity to move his business to Snider Financial Group as a Wealth Advisor in 2019.

Sheldon holds three designations; the Chartered Special Needs Consultant (ChSNC®) Retirement Income Certified Professional(RICP®) and the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®). He is also Life and Disability licensed.
