DHill Financial
President
DHill Financial, LLC is an independent insurance firm providing life insurance, income protection, long term care, and health care. I spent 26 years as a Long Term Care Insurance Wholesaler and realized what I missed most during that time was not getting the opportunity to connect directly with people. I don't believe that insurance is the answer for every client, and don't look to use insurance as an investment. I do believe that insurance can be a positive dialogue if the client needs are the priority, and my philosophy is to focus on the who and the why versus the what. Our recommendations can be easily integrated with the other planning initiatives so that the advice you receive from your financial advisor, your attorney, your CPA, and your trusted insurance professional all have you rowing in the same direction.

Phil Hicks
Sandy Spring Bank | Chantilly
Branch Manager
As Branch Manager at Sandy Spring Bank, I continue to put to use the financial service and lending experience of my nearly 40 years in business. Experience in the industry is but a small part of what makes an excellent and trusted adviser though. Trust is earned and developed over time by demonstrating integrity, honesty and a willingness to help others. I've tried my best to show that to others not only at work, but also in my volunteer and community service efforts.

Most of all I love to hear a good story. It is by listening to the stories of my clients that I am able to understand what they want and what they need. Using that information to help them make proper and prudent decisions regarding their business or personal finances is where I derive the satisfaction from my job. I’d love to hear your story too.

John Griffin
Griffin Fitness
Owner
I have been passionate about diet, exercise and overall health for nearly eighteen years,  I first became certified as a Personal Trainer in 2001 following my experience with the Body For Life body transformation contest.  My wife and I competed in the couples category and were among the three finalists.  We did not win the big cash prize, but we did get a lot of recognition online, in magazines and in the Body For Life Success Stories book by Bill Phillips.  

Today, I am certified through the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Council on Exercise.  In addition to being a Personal Trainer, I am also a Health Coach and a Weight Management Specialist.  
I have authored three books on diet, nutrition, and exercise.  Although none have reached best-seller status, the process of researching and writing the books helped me to become a better coach and trainer.
