Raised in the Southeast L.A. Suburb of Pico-Rivera, Ernest received a B.A. in Economics from the University of California, Berkeley in 1991. Working as a financial advisor since 1996, he earned the designation of Certified Financial PlannerTM in 2004. Since his affiliation with Wells Fargo Advisors in 2014, Ernest has been designated a Senior Private Investment Manager, PIM Portfolio Manager and a Premier Advisor*. He lives in Benicia with his wife, fellow Cal grad and Education PhD, Stacy. Married since 1988, together with their sons, Alex and Steven, they’ve set a family goal to visit all 50 states.
