KC Martel



Born and raised locally, KC spent 17 years as a working actor during his childhood and teen years. He later attended Cal State Northridge and received his BS in Psychology. He then devoted 14 years working at a non-profit hospital and completed his Masters program in Marriage, Family, and Children therapy. As a public speaker and advocate he toured extensively and was in demand on a variety of topics. Coordinating the Adolescent Services program for the hospital, he learned about running a successful business and far more about people, courage and hope.

Eager to learn new things, KC went into the business world and worked his way up to a National Sales Director in a prominent software firm. Knowing he felt more rewarded when directly helping people, he moved to the financial industry and got licensed as a Financial Advisor. After 12 years in the corporate setting, KC opened Companion Wealth Management.  Blending his business knowledge with the opportunity to help others and build important relationships, KC created a place where people could feel safe asking questions, plan for their future, and enjoy being the central part of the process.

Living walking distance from where he works, KC, his wife, and two sons are often seen around the community. He enjoys golf, travel, learning, and those rare days doing absolutely nothing.
