John Olson, CFP®, RICP®, MBA

Financial Advisor | President

John started his career in the U.S. Navy as a submarine officer. After serving seven years, John spent two years as a senior consultant for Booz Allen Hamilton.

He has served many clients including military, federal, civilian, retirees, and young families, guiding them through all of life's milestones and challenges.

John started 2250 Financial Services in 2020 in honor of his late father, John. The name "2250" comes from his dad's birthday as a remembrance of him. His father lived with integrity and to serve his family. He concentrated on what was truly important in life: family. That is the spirit that drives John in his practice—helping people manage their finances so they can focus their time and energy on what's important to them.

A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and the University of Maryland (MBA), John holds FINRA Series 6, 7, 24, 63, and 65 securities registrations, plus state life and health insurance licenses. John is also a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER certificant.

Marquita Hawkins

Registered Staff Member

Marquita credits her career in finance to her mother who raised her and her younger siblings. Through witnessing her mother’s difficult journey to finding financial guidance, Marquita saw a deep need for financial services provided by professionals who shared their same background. This inspired her to begin her career in financial planning to aid, educate, and be an additional resource to her community. A graduate of the University of Maryland (BA), Marquita holds FINRA Series 7 and 66 securities registrations, plus state life and health insurance licenses.

When she is not in the office, Marquita enjoys jigsaw puzzles, spending time with her family, and opportunities that introduce her to new spaces.
