Who We Serve

Our main focus is serving current and former educators of the California public school system. We do help non-educators on a case by case basis. If you aren't an educator but feel like Blue Oaks could be a good fit for you, start a conversation with us here.  

There are a few reasons we help educators:

  • While PERS & STRS are good retirement platforms, they don't give advice, nor help with anything outside of what they provide.
  • Ryan's past experience allowed him to work one on one with hundreds of educators while part of the CVT (California's Valued Trust) platform. He also delivered on-site and virtual financial presentations to several school sites through CVT.
  • The typical 403(b) choices are too vast to navigate and people need guidance. Plus there are major pitfalls one could easily fall into with 403(b)'s.
  • Ryan is married to a teacher and has first hand knowledge of the retirement system from a teacher's perspective. Through many conversations with his wife and her fellow coworkers, he realized educators are too often overlooked or ill-advised when it comes to financial matters.
