Ryan Ragoza had nearly a decade of experience as an engineer when he turned his interest in financial services into a new career at EP Wealth Advisors in 2022. Ryan began his career change taking courses towards the Certificate in Personal Financial Planning from UCLA Extension, after leaving his job as a Senior Design Engineer to move across the country. To create plans that help people gain peace of mind and find purpose, Ryan advises clients to “Think in decades, not days, and ignore the noise.” Besides finance, Ryan’s passions include traveling and spending time in the great outdoors. He enjoys planning adventures in the U.S. and abroad, seeing new sights, trying new foods, and hiking through the amazing National Parks. When he’s back home, you’ll find him rolling around the living room floor with his adopted puppy Penny—who is part chihuahua, part pit bull, part super mutt, and all American. Ryan migrated west in 2021 from Hoboken, New Jersey, driving across the country to land in sunny Venice, California.
