Ryan Edwards grew up in Bossier City, LA. The son of a local sports medicine doctor, Ryan wanted to pursue a passion for coaching. He followed this passion through his undergraduate studies at LSU and his graduate program at Northwestern State University, graduating from both with 4.0 grade point averages while working with the basketball teams at University Laboratory School and Northwestern State. The coaching profession brought him to Shreveport in 2006 to serve as the assistant men’s basketball coach at LSU Shreveport. In 2010, after several in-depth discussions with Kelly Young, who was in the process of starting Cornerstone Investment Strategies, Ryan decided to undertake a new challenge.
Transitioning from a career in coaching, Ryan Edwards began at Cornerstone in September of 2010. Initially serving as an assistant to Kelly, Ryan quickly completed the requirements to become an investment executive. Since then, he has steadily grown his business and particularly enjoys working with young professionals who have a desire to plan for their future. He holds the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM(CFP®) designation, a distinguished designation in the financial services industry awarded to financial advisors who have met strict standards for experience, knowledge and ethical conduct.
Ryan is married to the former Alice Yunker, and they have two children: Grant and Juliana.
