As a local Edward Jones financial advisor in Seal Beach, Sean believes it’s important to invest his time to truly understand what people are working toward before they invest their time and their money. A big part of his job is to provide the most appropriate financial strategy for his clients and their families. In his work as Vice President of LAEF, Sean utilizes the same thinking in his passion for expanding student enrichment here in the Los Alamitos school district. As a Board Member, Sean helps LAEF strategically think through ideas and processes to ensure LAEF is making the optimal decisions for the students within our district.
During his career, Sean has served as field trainer, mentor, coach and consultant and has been honored with Edward Jones’ Client Service Excellence award for the past three years. He also received the AAMS professional designation in 2005 and the CFP® professional designation in 2008. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in 1998.
Sean is extremely active in our community, not only serving on the LAEF Board, but also as Chairman of Precious Life Shelter, and Past President of the Rotary Club of Los Alamitos/ Seal Beach. He believes that building relationships is key, and you can often find him greeting folks with a smile at LAEF events.
Sean has been married to his awesome wife Amy for 12 years and they have two daughters, one of which is a proud LAUSD elementary school student! And all of the Paynes were born and raised in Orange County.
A quote from Sean:
“One of the reasons we moved into this community was to provide our two girls with the outstanding education provided by the Los Alamitos school district. I am honored to be a part of LAEF and support our schools directly.”
