Don Spini

MANAGING PARTNER

Don Spini genuinely cares about people. He is a former Los Angeles police officer who spent over three decades working in the financial services industry as an executive for nationally recognized financial institutions. Since he first started working in the financial industry, Don has felt that the process of retirement planning is often made more complicated and confusing for people than it needs to be. This has motivated him to develop an innovative and more intuitive approach to retirement planning. Don’s straightforward methodology makes retirement income strategies accessible and attainable for everyone while removing the unnecessary mystery and confusion from the process. Over the course of his career, Don has found that what he loves most about his work is helping people implement the strategies he develops for them. His greatest reward is seeing the peace of mind his clients get from a sensible and financially rewarding strategy he is able to create.

In addition to being recognized as a renowned public speaker who has reached audiences of tens of thousands of people all over the United States, Don has authored several best-selling books. He is currently raising his two daughters, Katie and Olivia, in Scottsdale, Arizona, with his fiancé, Logan, who is an accomplished corporate attorney.

Ashley Patterson

MANAGING PARTNER

Ashley Patterson has more than 17 years of experience in the financial services industry. She comes from a long line of family members with a combined 120 years of financial service among them. Ashley knows firsthand how important it is to generate a reliable monthly income in the retirement years. In particular, she wants her clients to avoid going through what her grandmother experienced when she retired from AT&T in 1999 during the “dot-com crash.” She lost nearly half of her total retirement savings one year after selecting a “cash-and-stocks” option over a pension, causing trouble and headaches when she should have been enjoying family and free time. Ashley dedicates herself to making sure her clients get the quality advice and assistance they deserve so no one has to go through what her grandmother did.

Ashley safely advised her clients through the Great Recession of 2008 and personally assisted them in capitalizing on their investments in the ensuing decade-plus-long bull market. She is both prudent and savvy when it comes to her investment strategy and maintains a stellar track record of success in both good times and bad times. This approach has placed her at a level of expertise that sets her apart from other financial professionals.

Raised in Texas, Ashley spends time between her homes in Austin, Las Vegas, and Scottsdale. She is an avid animal activist who enjoys raising her two adopted boxers, Bodhi and Bianca.

Logan Marcus, Esq.

INVESTMENT ADVISOR

Logan Marcus came to DNA Wealth Partners with more than a decade of experience in law, which helped to shape her principles and make her the advisor she is today. Despite her role as a financial professional with her Series 65 registration, Logan plans to never lose sight of her legal background and what is important to her, which is serving the best interest of her clients. During her legal career, Logan’s fiduciary duty called on her to uphold the Constitution and pursue justice for her clients. She now utilizes her vast array of tools to help clients on a different level — guiding them toward a comfortable retirement and ensuring her clients’ financial houses are in order. The first step in Logan’s process is to listen and truly tailor her advice to each client with an ear to their desires and goals prior to and during retirement. With a strong connection to her team, a wide range of resources at her fingertips, and a desire to do the right thing, Logan knows she can find the best solution for any willing client.

Originally from Newton, Massachusetts, Logan went to Syracuse University for her undergraduate studies and later moved to California to attend law school. She practiced in the San Diego and Los Angeles areas for many years prior to making a career transition into financial services. Logan now resides in Scottsdale, Arizona, with her fiancé Don. When she finds free time, she enjoys practicing Pilates, traveling, reading, watching movies, trying new restaurants, and pursuing an active lifestyle.

Jessi Johnson has been in the financial services industry for longer than a quarter of a century. In her initial roles she supported the underwriting process, but she has found her true calling in working directly with clients. With both her Series 65 registration and her life and health license, Jessi is willing to do whatever it takes to find the proper answer to any problem. Believing in a foundation of education, Jessi feels her job is incomplete unless her clients fully understand their portfolios, why she implements the strategies she does and how the focus on protection can help on the road to retirement. Leading with a listening ear and an open mind, her sense of purpose comes from building relationships and helping each individual person she meets with find the right solution for their own retirement. That right solution, however, is often different from what she gathers from a simple first impression, but she values the challenge and the opportunity to understand a problem before she solves it.

Originally from Kansas City, Jessi earned her MBA from Rockhurst University. An avid Chiefs fan and a true Midwesterner, she believes in family, food and football. She is now a resident of Scottsdale, Arizona, and enjoys spending her time with her mini goldendoodle and her daughter, a theatre student who keeps the entire family entertained and active.
