It is said that if we command our wealth, we shall be rich and free; if our wealth commands us,
we are poor indeed. As a financial planner with Clear Financial Network, Barbara Schoonover
ensures clients remain in command of their financial future through education and advisement.
She is a down-to-earth, relatable professional who approaches her work with expertise,
knowledge, and a solid foundation of trust. Her ability to listen, understand, and translate
concerns into viable solutions is impeccable.
Barbara is a native of Pennsylvania and a longtime resident of Burleson. She began her career in
the beauty industry, where she built a solid foundation of customer service skills and a passion
for excellence. Her career path then led her into the insurance industry, where she took on the
role as a medical examiner, administering qualifying exams for health and life insurance. This
role expanded her expertise in customer service and a focused attention to detail.
Throughout these experiences, she discovered a passion for numbers and an ability to deeply
understand mathematical concepts. She prepared her tax return each year and brought it to Couch
and Russell for filing. Her unique grasp of numbers and ability to easily understand tax rules
caught the organization's attention. She was brought on as a seasonal tax preparer, where she
consistently performed in an exceptional manner. Barbara was later hired as the administrative
assistant to Michael Smith and Craig Couch. During this period, she learned every aspect of the
business, including complex financial concepts, planning, and building strong client
relationships.
She started working and studying towards her financial certifications and mentoring towards a
future career as a financial advisor. Ultimately, she earned her Certified Plan Fiduciary Advisor
(CPFA®) credential, Series 6 and 63 licenses, and SIE and life insurance licenses. Now, she is
an active member of the advisor team, where she is led and mentored daily while serving her
clients’ needs.
In her free time, Barbara enjoys fishing, Florida travel experiences, reading, and dining out. She
is a loving wife and devoted mother of two children and two dogs.
