I AM TIM BAKER

As a sworn fiduciary and fee-only CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™
I have your best interests in mind.
I believe with a little help, direction and accountability you can achieve great things.
Let’s begin that journey.

About you

First, to the savvy, young professional (like a pharmacist!), who needs financial guidance, I’m your guy. Frustrated with questions like how much you’ll need to purchase your first home or when the appropriate time is? Uncertain if your retirement accounts are invested properly or if you’re saving enough?

Second, to the pharmacy student getting ready to graduate and start earning that paycheck, I’m also your guy! If that is you, “Congrats!” It’s a huge accomplishment and it’s exciting to begin the career you’ve worked so hard for so long. However, going from earning next to nothing to a substantial salary can be rife with danger. No clue how to evaluate student loan repayment plans? Need some help negotiating that first salary?

Ideally, I look for clients who are seeking a long term relationship, who are eager to learn and want to be coached. If you are a young professional, a pharmacist or about to become one, we should work together! What are you waiting for?

About Me

I grew up in the great state of New Jersey (seriously). We’re known for our delicious tomatoes (look it up), the show “Jersey Shore” (I’ve never seen it and don’t expect any fist pumps from me) and greats like Bruce Springsteen, Bon Jovi, Tony Soprano and Tim Baker, CFP®. After graduating high school, I attended the United States Military Academy majoring in International Relations and branching Armor. After having a cup of coffee in the Army (thanks medical board :/), I started a career in logistics for a major retailer and then a construction company in OH and CA, respectively. I enjoyed logistics, but left that career because I wanted something more. After months of deliberation, I narrowed it down to financial planner, police officer or personal trainer. Very different, huh? I guess the common denominator is that I wanted to be in a profession where I felt like I was actively helping people.

So, that is what I did. I moved to Baltimore, MD and joined a small independent firm and learned all I could about the business, earning the necessary licenses and certifications to begin assisting clients meet their financial goals. To me, there is no better satisfaction than hearing a client say they are relieved they have a plan in place. Launching Script Financial is a dream for me because I can brand and build a firm that is tailored to meet the needs of my clients. As someone who has worked in other industries, I know what it’s like to be clueless when picking out your 401(k) investments (I seriously bought Investing for Dummies…this is a sad, sad fact), or feel uneasy when purchasing a home (and feeling like you’re signing your life away!). Money can be a stressor, but it doesn’t have to be.

Let’s plan together!
