Bryan Smith

Special Care Planner, Financial Advisor, ChSNC

I am a Special Care Planner with ALA Financial Group that focuses on working with families and business owners that have or care for a child with special needs. I am one of 400 Charted Special Needs Consultants (ChSNC) designated in the United States and one of the very few who serve the Houston community. I specialize in strategies that leave a legacy for your children in the most cost effective, tax efficient way. I discuss Life Care planning, educate on Social Security issues, help educate and review trustee options, and help secure a financial future for the parents along with the child. My mission is to serve as the family's financial macro manager by utilizing top professionals from around the industry to assist the family with any needs that arise. Helping special needs children and their families has always been my passion and I believe my calling. My younger brother is profoundly disabled and has numerous medical disabilities including severe seizures, osteoporosis, and brain malformation/atrophy. I can relate first hand to the highs and lows of what it means to take care of someone who needs special attention. I have dedicated my personal and now professional life to helping children with special needs from volunteering with numerous non-profits, to now being able to help Special Families prepare for their financial future. 



Tinja Anderson

Financial Professional

I was raised in a family of entrepreneurs whose entire mission is to create a legacy of excellence. Meaning you always leave anything you touch better than how you found it. That mindset applied to everything in how I was raised and continues to apply to all aspects of my life now. There is nothing more fulfilling to me than knowing that I can impact the lives of my clients by reducing the fear of not having enough, and by working with a team of Special Care Planners who assist our clients in navigating the complex world of special needs.

As a sibling of someone who grew up with a severe speech impediment, I know how important it is to find the community and support. I am genuinely honored to be able to support our community.
