Christene Dino-Hobbs, RICP®

Partner and Financial Adviser

As a wealth advisor, Christene helps clients fully understand where they are financially, what they want to accomplish, and what steps they need to take to achieve their goals. She works with business owners, families, and professionals, and she specializes in estate planning, business exit strategies, financial planning, retirement planning, and wealth management. Ultimately, Christene’s mission is to leave the world better than she found it, and she’s honored to be able to help people navigate their financial journey with peace of mind. 

In 2022, Christene received the Fusion Award from the Council for Inclusion in Financial Services for her implementing inclusive practices with a culture that embraces a collage of thought, race, gender, generations and preferences.

Heather and Christene met in 2013 as new advisers, and eventually decided to merge their efforts and serve clients together. Christene comes from a family of entrepreneurs; her father spent 40 years in the financial services industry as an executive and business owner, and she’s proud to continue his legacy. She graduated Cum Laude from SMU with a Bachelor of Arts in Corporate Communications and Public Affairs with a minor in business.

Christene has obtained the Retirement Income Certified Professional® designation, is a member of the Dallas Estate Planning Council and Finseca, and sits on the boards of the Communities Foundation of Texas and Business Transitions Summit Advisory Board.

Christene is engaged to Chris, a veteran Marine who serves as the Director of Client Success in the practice. Both she and Chris are proud to come from military families. Their family includes four beautiful daughters and two dogs, Breacher (a German shepherd) and Omega (an English bulldog).

In their free time, Christene and Chris enjoy playing golf and taking trips to the beach or lake with their girls and pups. They’re active in their church, and they both serve on the board and volunteer on the worship team (Christene loves to sing!). They are involved with several charities that promote healthy families, support veterans, and provide resources for kids’ extracurricular activities and leadership development.
