About Me

After working decades in the insurance and financial services industry, Wes Shannon left insurance to do full-time financial planning and investment advising. Wes founded SJK Financial Planning and then merged with Dansby Wealth Management to form Brazos Wealth Advisors.

Wes has a Bachelor of Business Administration from the University of North Texas majoring in Financial Planning. Wes is a Certified Financial Planning Professional™. Wes is an active member of the National Association of Personal Financial Advisers (NAPFA), and a member of the DFW chapter of the Financial Planning Association (FPA) where he is the Pro Bono Committee chairman. Wes is also a member of the XY Planning Network (XYPN).

Wes enjoys the outdoors participating in backpacking, hunting, fishing, canoeing, and camping. He likes to cook, play guitar, and read. He has a passion for old movies and is a Turner Classic Movie fan. Wes says, “I love good story telling, that’s what I look for in old movies”. Expect Wes to listen to your story and dreams; then work in a sincere manner to help you reach those dreams.

About our Firm

We help attorneys gain peace of mind about their financial future through comprehensive financial planning and sensible investment management.

✅ We work only for our clients, so we're paid only by our clients.
✅ We act in our clients' best interests at all times.
✅ We anticipate client problems and provide solutions in advance.
✅ We respond quickly and thoroughly to our clients' issues.
✅ We invest client funds sensibly and solely in accordance with their needs and desires.


We want to help people attain the best life they can with the resources and means they have available. We also don’t want our motives to be questioned because of commissions and sales bonuses. That is why we are fee only fiduciaries. We work for, and get paid, only by our clients. No behind the scenes compensation or kickbacks. We do better as you do better.


We don’t like to lose money. We encourage clients to take the most conservative route to their goals. Our investment recommendations are intended to work for the client’s long-term goals.

We believe in the weak form of the Efficient Market Hypothesis. We don’t engage in market timing or trendy technical analysis. We use appropriate mathematical measures of risk and return. The standard deviation is our primary measure of risk, and we use the Sharpe Ratio for risk adjusted returns.

We believe a tactical asset allocation is the most important determinant for long-term portfolio performance.


The Brazos River has long been celebrated in American culture. Marty Robbins, Lyle Lovett and John Hiatt were among the many who have sang about the river, and it has been featured in critically praised works by writers such as Cormac McCarthy and John Graves. In one story, the Spanish conquistador Francisco Vázquez de Coronado and his team encountered the river as they fruitlessly searched for a fabled golden city. As Coronado and his men wandered in West Texas, dying of thirst, Indians guided them to a stream, which they joyously dubbed “Los Brazos de Dios.”
