SageSpring Wealth Partners Launches Jones Wealth Team

FRANKLIN, Tenn., November 14, 2023 –– SageSpring Wealth Partners, a prominent wealth advisory firm, is excited to announce the launch of the Jones Wealth Team led by Elisa Leftridge Jones.

Elisa has spent over two decades in the investment and securities industry. During this time, she has dedicated herself to understanding her clients’ stories while helping them change their family’s financial tree. After starting her career in Nashville as an advisor for a Wall-Street based mutual fund company, Elisa later transitioned to an independent advisory firm where she served for seven years. 

Since 2017, Jones has been a key member of the SageSpring Wealth Partners team serving alongside Bob Sircy and Zach Hurd where she says that she has continued to see firsthand the importance of building strong personal relationships with clients. “These [client] relationships are not transactional to me; I strive to know them on a deeper level and build trust through meaningful conversations and personal connections,” Elisa said. 

Elisa believes that her relational personality and conversational approach paired with her financial competence come together to help the Jones Wealth Team achieve their mission of “helping clients achieve their version of financial freedom.” 

As she transitioned into her new role, Elisa expressed her gratitude to SageSpring Wealth Partners and the Sircy-Hurd Team, “I am grateful for the support of SageSpring and the incredible people here who have nurtured my growth as an advisor and given me space and resources to forge my own path.” 

“This is a huge opportunity for me to grow and create a legacy for my family,” said Elisa Jones. “Launching my own wealth team also gives me a greater opportunity and responsibility to support women and minorities.” Elisa continued, “Many people have not had easy access to the tools they need to understand financial literacy and wealth-building strategies.” “They need someone they can trust to come alongside them to support and educate them in building their financial plans” she continued. “It’s inspiring and fulfilling to me to support people who are starting from the ground up in building wealth.” 

Based in Franklin, TN, the Jones Wealth Team is open and ready to make a positive difference. “I strive to leave the world better than I found it every day,” Elisa said. “That’s the kind of legacy I want to leave behind for my clients, my family, and my community.”

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.
