Shawn Bennett

Financial Planning Advisor


Shawn Bennett is a Financial Planning Advisor at Your Financial Legacy, having transitioned in February of 2024 from working for a large Fortune 500 company for the last 28 years. Shawn decided to work closer with and offer more to his clients regarding retirement, estate, and gift planning. He can provide hundreds of investment strategies through an affiliation with Inspire Advisors, Inc. and Charles Schwab, Inc.

As an independent registered investment advisor, Shawn is a fiduciary. This means that Shawn is committed to this important standard, requiring his actions to be only in the best interest of his clients, managing investments with care, and not having financial incentives to discuss one investment strategy vs another for monetary gain. A fiduciary advisor signifies an important distinction as many non-fiduciary advisors are limited in investment options and may choose to discuss high-commission insurance/annuity products vs the lower-cost alternatives.

Shawn has dedicated the last 28 years to building relationships and serving his clients' investment and retirement needs and is excited about this new opportunity to improve on past results significantly. Shawn and his wife Sheryl will work together at Your Financial Legacy. They have been married for almost 30 years and serve together in their home, church, and careers.

Family is very important; Shawn and Sheryl have two children, one son-in-law, and two dogs. Shawn's father has dementia; recently, his father and mother moved in with them so they could provide additional care and attention for his father. They both love to travel for pleasure and on mission trips. In the summer of 2023, their family and three close friends submitted Mt. Kilimanjaro at 19,341ft (5,895M). They both have a sense of adventure and drive to live life to the fullest. Shawn often tells others that you only live once and aren't getting any younger, so you best set some goals and plan for the future today. Other interests and hobbies include trail riding at San Felasco State Park, HIIT training, golf, and running.

Isabela Picoli

Administrative Assistant

Isabela Picoli serves as the Administrative Assistant at Your Financial Legacy. She is originally from Brazil, but has lived in Florida for over half of her life. During her childhood, she saw her parents handling money in a healthy and responsible way, always living at or below their means, which helped shape her view of money. In high school, at her father’s direction, she enrolled in the Academy of Finance, a 4-year magnet program at her school, where she was introduced to finance and learned basic financial principles.

While earning her B.S. in Biology at the University of Florida and the years following her graduation, Isabela came across people her age who considered making unwise financial decisions due to their lack of basic financial knowledge. She realized just how important her parents’ example and the basic financial principles she learned in high school had been to her life, and how beneficial it is to learn these principles at a young age. This led to her desire to help people, especially the younger generation, to be financially literate and have good money habits.

Outside of work, Isabela is involved in International and Children’s ministry through her church and has served on mission trips to the Amazon River Basin as a Vacation Bible School leader and Portuguese translator. She also enjoys going to the beach, visiting extended family in Brazil, and spending time with her parents and twin sister.
