Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.

The Advisor

My name is Shaun Melby and I am the founder of Melby Wealth Management, LLC. At the time of my certification, I was one of the youngest CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioners in the country.

I have over 10 years of experience in the financial industry while working closely with some of the biggest names in music. I believe the financial planning process is the best way to create and maintain wealth, so I formed Melby Wealth Management to help as many people as possible work towards achieving their dreams and obtaining financial peace of mind.

I grew up in Onalaska, Wisconsin and moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 2005 to earn a BBA in Finance as well as Music Business from Belmont University. My wife and I call Nashville, Tennessee home.

During my spare time, I enjoy going to Nashville Predators games, cheering on the Green Bay Packers, checking out the local dining scene, traveling, playing with our dogs Hank and Bo, and spending time with family and friends.
