Matt Weibler

CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner

Matt has been working in the financial planning industry for more than 10 years. Knowing it was what he wanted to do, he started working at Weibler Financial while he was still completing his bachelor's degree in business finance from the University of Idaho. 

Matt is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner. In addition, he holds the Accredited Investment Fiduciary® certification, his insurance license, and FINRA Series 7 and 66 securities registrations with Commonwealth Financial Network® as a registered advisor.

Matt and his wife, Jackie, were married in 2011 and had their first child in 2014. Matt loves living in Idaho and especially in Lewiston. While he and his wife certainly enjoy traveling, they could not imagine a more perfect place to live and raise a family. Matt and his family (especially his 3-year-old, Jane) enjoy fishing, hiking, and even just time spent playing in the backyard. Jackie is an incredible cook and having family dinner together is usually the best part of Matt’s day. Matt also enjoys shooting guns and hunting birds with his German shorthaired pointer, Walker. 

Matt just wrapped up his year serving as the president of the Lewiston Rotary Club. Chartered in 1921, this is one of the oldest Rotary Clubs on the planet. It is Matt’s desire to see the community he lives in be prosperous, healthy, educated, and for all of these things to endure sustainably. In Matt's opinion, Rotary is one of the best and most fun ways for a person to have a real impact in these areas.
 
It is Matt's belief that rational thinking, thoughtful planning, and diligent follow-through are the prevailing factors that determine a person’s future circumstance. Virtually any goal can be accomplished with commitment, objectivism, and a positive mental attitude

Christy Armstrong

Client Service Manager

Christy joined Weibler Financial & Retirement in March 2017. She handles the administrative duties of the firm, which includes supporting the advisors, maintaining operating efficiency with paperwork and software programs, greeting clients in the office, and preparing materials for upcoming meetings with clients.

Christy has more than 30 years of customer service and more than 20 years of a variety of bookkeeping experience. She worked for her family-owned window covering business in Spokane during her young adulthood, where she first experienced bookkeeping duties and ordering processes and developed her communication skills. She knew at a young age that she wanted to work with people, enjoyed bookkeeping, and was passionate about accuracy and making sure the operations of any business run smoothly and efficiently. She has always kept that philosophy throughout her professional career.

After living in Chicago from 2000 to 2003 for her husband’s job, they found themselves in the Lewiston, Idaho Valley. With three young sons, Christy and her husband, Jeff, wanted to be closer to their extended families. Christy worked in accounting and in accounts payable for several years. But her passion for small locally owned businesses drew her back to where she has found her home with Weibler Financial & Retirement.

Christy and Jeff love the LC Valley and plan on retiring here. She is passionate about helping support her local community and the surrounding small businesses, nonprofits, and schools, which have taken great care in educating and supporting her sons clear through high school.

Christy is currently serving as an ambassador of the Chamber of Commerce, and just recently served on the United Way Education grant panel. Christy has taken on additional responsibilities at Weibler Financial, which includes working on key marketing initiatives, planning client events, business development, streamlining different workflows within the office, and handling public relations for the firm.
