Our Team

Meet The Founders

Jerry Biegler, ChFC®

Over the years, Jerry has enjoyed working with his clients to plan for their financial future and realize their dreams. His experiences have allowed him to become knowledgeable about most financial products and planning methods. However, he never tires of expanding his knowledge for the benefit of his current clients and the additional clients that he hopes to work with in the future.

Jerry’s concern for his clients and the fact that they feel at ease around him stems from his humble upbringing. He was raised on a small family farm in North Dakota. As the youngest boy of 16 children, he watched his mother struggle to keep the farm after his father passed away. This experience has fueled his passion to encourage others to provide for their families, not only in the event of their death, but to help them create and enjoy the maximum wealth during their lifetime. At 17 Jerry enlisted in the Navy. He then attended the University of Wisconsin and graduated with a degree in History and Political Science. After graduation, he moved to Colorado and began his career in financial services.

Jerry lives in Colorado Springs with his wife Vicki, who has been by his side in life and work for over 20 years. He is an active member of his church and enjoys supporting charitable endeavors for single moms and children. His greatest source of joy has been watching his 3 children grow up and welcoming his first grandchild. He enjoys spending time with his family, especially when it involves hiking, skiing, or sailing.

Vicki Biegler, MBA

Vicki’s diverse background in banking, small business consulting, and financial planning made her a natural fit for Rocky Mountain Financial Services. She developed a desire to help others achieve financial security and pursue their dreams when she was young, as she observed her father run a business and participate in several entrepreneurial endeavors. Understanding the unique challenges and rewards of entrepreneurship, Vicki is committed to providing tailored solutions that meet the specific needs of each client.

Vicki finds great fulfillment in getting to know clients, preparing plans to help them achieve their financial goals, and observing their progress over time. She has a unique passion for reviewing tax returns and other financial documents to identify opportunities for improvement of the overall financial picture.

Vicki holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Delaware and a Master of Business Administration from the University of West Florida.

In addition to her professional achievements, she is an active member of her church and enjoys participating in Bible studies with other women. During her free time, Vicki enjoys hiking, group fitness classes, traveling, and visiting the beach. She has three grown children and a grandchild, which brings her immense joy.
