Biography

Scott joined Plancorp in 2017 after spending seven years in public accounting, first at BKD and then Brown Smith Wallace. He earned both his Bachelor of Science in Accounting and Master of Accountancy from Missouri State University.

As a manager in Brown Smith Wallace’s Family Wealth Planning group, Scott provided advanced estate and income tax planning and compliance services for high net worth families, closely held businesses and business executives. He brings that experience to Plancorp’s family office practice, where he helps families understand, grow and preserve their wealth.

Scott is a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Missouri Society of Certified Public Accountants. In his free time, he enjoys all sports, traveling, and spending time with friends and family. Scott says an African safari with his wife, Stephanie, is at the top of his bucket list— but for now, their young son Madden is their whole world.
