Blake HummelFinancial Associate
Blake joined the Abound Wealth team in 2023 after spending seven years working in Nashville’s music and live events industry. During this time, he toured with various pop, country, and Christian artists as a Lighting Designer, and he eventually took a job at Dave Ramsey’s company as a Production Manager. It was through this job that he discovered his love for personal finance and started listening to The Money Guy Show. Blake quickly realized how much he enjoyed sharing his growing knowledge of finance with others, and today, he loves getting to use this knowledge to simplify the world of finance and show people that their goals are possible with a little intentional planning.
Blake lives in Franklin, Tennessee, with his wife, Helen, and their energetic kitten, Winston. Outside of work, he enjoys running, reading, traveling, and being a part of Fellowship Bible Church. He is a Michigan native but was happy to trade snowy winters for Tennessee weather.
