Helping Clients Preserve Their Assets, Grow Their Wealth, and Take Care of Loved Ones

Financial planning is not a product—it is a process. Just as life changes, so too, does your financial plan. Working with recent widows, career changers, and even those just getting started, we believe that everyone—no matter their stage of life—deserves an independent consultant.

About Us

Our responsibility is to understand your “why” and implement financial strategies that help you live your best life. Just as every fingerprint and snowflake is unique, we believe your financial plan is unique to you.

Stewardship is the key fundamental that we hold steadfast on our team. We aim to empower our clients to make wise life and money decisions based on their current life stage, goals, ideals, and value systems. As independent financial consultants, we are not tied to any product or service. We always act in the best interest of our clients, serving as stewards at all times.

Timothy is originally from South Bend, Indiana and graduated with honors from Bethel College with degrees in both Business and Liberal Studies focusing in Christian Ministries. While attending school, Timothy was introduced to the financial planning industry by his golf coach. Upon graduation, Timothy moved to Knoxville and assisted Travis Cullman in building the Knoxville office.

Using Biblical stewardship principles regarding money, Timothy specializes in working with career changes and recent widows. Timothy believes that financial planning is a process and not a product. The relationship between a trusted advisor and his clients are paramount to any affiliation with investment products or companies. Some of the areas of focus include tax planning-helping clients systematically lower their taxes owed, estate planning-ensuring clients’ wishes are honored, risk management-helping protect clients from potential pitfalls, and investment planning-designing strategies to grow wealth and help clients meet their goals.

Outside of working with clients, Timothy enjoys playing golf and studying golf course architecture. Most of all, he enjoys spending quality time with his wife, Keilan, and their son Grayson. They live in Knoxville and attend First Apostolic Church of Knoxville.

Jeffrey T. Dobyns

President, SageSpring | Financial Advisor, RJFS

Beyond crunching numbers and investment strategies, at SageSpring, we’re about building relationships. When you encounter Founder & President of SageSpring, Jeff Dobyns, it’s easy to understand why this is at the very heart of who we are as a firm. You won’t find stuffy formalities with Jeff; instead, you can expect to find him sharing a warm smile, communicating a compelling vision, or patiently untangling life’s complex challenges with clients. He believes in truly getting to know clients, understanding their aspirations and priorities, and navigating their financial plans with a tailored, comprehensive approach. Our team members have often been caught taking notes on Jeff’s effortless relationship skills from a distance, and we admire them for striving to learn from one of the best. 

Jeff’s financial expertise and wisdom are the perfect match to his innate people skills. Jeff holds the prestigious CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM certification, Chartered Life Underwriter (CLU®), and Chartered Financial Consultant (ChLU®) designations, and has held executive positions with financial planning firms for more than two decades. 

His dedication extends beyond the office to the boardroom and the local community, where Jeff is passionate about giving back. He serves as Chairman of the Board of Men of Valor, a prison ministry and mentoring program. Jeff also serves on the board of Send Musicians to Prison, which shares hope, healing and restoration with the imprisoned through musicians & artists. Jeff actively supports other initiatives in the community by sitting on the board of The Signatry of Middle Tennessee and the Halftime Institute of Nashville. 

Witnessing his four children, Gracyn, Hunter, Tanner, and Logan, excel on the field is almost just as rewarding, if not more, than celebrating the victories of seeing his clients overcome obstacles and build wealth. Spending weekends boating on the lake, hiking mountain trails, and fishing with his family are the moments Jeff cherishes most. It’s this grounded perspective that reveals the true meaning of wealth for Jeff: not just numbers on a page, but the freedom to create experiences that enrich your life and the lives of those you love. When you choose the Dobyns McMillin Wealth Team, you choose more than financial expertise. You choose a partner who champions your dreams, celebrates your victories, and walks besides you on the path to achieving your unique goals.
