Investment Advisor Representative
Will Witherspoon joined the team at Advocacy Wealth Management in 2018 as an Investment Advisor Representative. Prior to joining Advocacy, he worked through the PMD program at Merrill Lynch, managing $4.2 million in assets. During that time, Will added to his insurance licenses and Series 63 by also attaining his Series 7 and 66.
The son of a retired military officer who was stationed abroad, Will spent part of his childhood living in Germany and England and speaks German. He attended the University of Georgia where he was a three-year starter prior to being drafted in the third round of the 2002 NFL Draft by Carolina. A two-time selection to the USA Today "All-Joe" team honoring the NFL's hardest-working players, Will joined the St. Louis Rams as a free agent in 2006 and made an immediate impact by leading the team in tackles. He was a Rams' team captain for two seasons and was voted the team's most valuable player in 2007.
During Will’s 12-year NFL career, he played for the Carolina Panthers, St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, and Tennessee Titans. Will was known for more than his skills on the field, routinely going above and beyond for his community and for his fans by doing a variety of charity work. He retired from the NFL in 2014 and became the St. Louis Rams sideline reporter for 101 ESPN and the Rams Radio Network.
Will served on the board of the Newmark Foundation, helping to raise the funds to build a centralized school in New Jersey for children with special needs. He currently serves on the Matthews Dickey Board and the James Beard Foundation on Food Safety. Will is also the owner of Shire Gate Farms in Owensville, MO, which has quickly become the industry's highest standard of humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone free, natural grass-fed beef. Will also enjoys spending time with his three daughters.
