Cullen  West

Cullen West is a Memphis native who attended MUS and is an active member of Second Presbyterian Church. Growing up, Cullen often volunteered, mainly focusing on special needs programs. From a very young age, he knew he wanted to serve his community and help others.

Cullen graduated from the University of Memphis in 2015, after which he founded a company that helped YouTubers build marketing strategies. He then went on to be an analyst for banks including Trustmark and Metropolitan, but he found that work didn’t fulfill his goals of aiding people to pursue their goals. That’s how Cullen found Shoemaker Financial.

In 2020, Cullen interviewed with and began his career in financial planning with Shoemaker Financial. His qualifications include licensing to sell health and life insurance as well as the Series 7 Securities Registration.
