TJ Walker



"You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending."

CS Lewis


This life is short and why not live it intentionally with purpose and impact. At a young age TJ was introduced to the challenge of being a good steward with his money. His father and grandfather walked him into a financial advisor’s office and started him on the path of connecting his money with his purpose. Ever since that day he has been passionate about helping others do the same.

Prior to joining Arkos, Tj owned and operated his wealth management practice Rooted Financial. He has been working in the financial advising space since 2012. Prior to financial services, he worked as the Director of Operations as a fourth-generation owner in his family’s mattress manufacturing company. He graduated from Portland State University with his bachelor’s degree and a double major in Business Management and Marketing.

He met his wife Jena while they were on a spring break ministry trip in Louisiana, helping rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. They met in the spring of 2006 and have been married since 2007. They have five children, Ella, Tyson, Lucy, June and Carson. They are actively involved in their church serving in multiple roles. In their free time they enjoy sports and the outdoors.
