OUR TEAM

Our Team

At Volk & Associates Wealth Management, our team regularly challenges the status quo, constantly improving the value we bring to our clients’ financial lives by asking ourselves how we can do it better.

We are excited to announce that Kris Daniels, Financial Advisor, and Emma Langdon, Client Service Associate, have joined our team!

The addition of Kris and Emma gives our firm the opportunity to provide multi-generational planning to our clients’ families and their children. Our team will create a customized retirement income plan that addresses your impending shift in focus: from growing your money to making it last for the rest of your life (and beyond). Craig M. Volk primarily works with business owners on personal and business planning, preparing for the distribution stage and unwinding assets as they enter the work-optional phase of life. Financial Advisor, Kris Daniels, works with employees and families on their personal planning, in the accumulation phase of their working years. Client Service Manager, Emma Langdon, will support Kris and his clients.
