"The Student Governing Council is proud to endorse Amy Guerich and her firm of certified financial planners as they come to KUMC to advise our students. The students at KUMC are a diverse group with many financial needs. After meeting with the Financial Aid Office at KUMC and Ms. Guerich, we are excited about the opportunity for our students to have support from a firm that prides itself on its objectivity and variety in knowledge and expertise. SGC is confident that our students will benefit from this service and will be provided the support they need in whatever stage of life. " ~SGC
