Case Design Team

Marissa Pennington

Chief Case Designer

In just three short years, Marissa graduated summa cum laude from Wichita State University’s Barton School of Business with a Bachelor of Arts in Business Administration with minors in Marketing, Management, and Economics in 2010. After a brief stint with Walgreens, she started with Schreck Financial Group in 2012.

Marissa has had many roles in her time on John and Ron’s team and was recently promoted to start the transition into the role of Case Designer. She also is very proficient in all aspects of handling pending new business, addressing customer service issues, publishing client “Blueprints," and working with insurance companies and investment services providers.

Marissa is passionate about what she does because on a daily basis she sees how we’re able to help individuals and families by having a positive impact on their lives. She believes that the values that drive every decision we make are the same values with which she was raised; she feels fortunate to work with a team of people who share these values and who strive to share them with others.

She is married to Seth and they have one son, Gabriel. She enjoys spending as much of her free time as she can with Gabriel since he is growing up so fast! She enjoys cooking and coming up with new desserts and treats to try.

Kelly Secrest

Case Designer

Kelly graduated from WSU in 2013 carrying a 3.4 GPA with a bachelor's degree in Management Information Systems and a minor in Finance. He also studied Aerospace Engineering and Accounting. While attending WSU full time, he worked full time at O’Reilly’s Auto Parts, eventually working his way into management.

He joined Schreck Financial Group in 2013 and put his IT skills to work on the Blueprint Publishing Team. This work helps clients to have a clearer understanding of their current situation, as well as an easy to follow outline of what our recommendations would be to better align their current affairs towards their financial goals.

Outside work, he enjoys following the Shockers basketball team and going to the casino. The automotive field is something he truly enjoys so you will sometimes find him at the drag strip or helping people work on their cars.
