Our Founders

Amanda Czosek and Kevin C. Sanders, Esq.
Owners and Co-Founders, Wealth Advisors

Amanda Czosek and Kevin Sanders, dedicated Investment Adviser Representatives and insurance professionals, founded Guardian Wealth Advisory Group in 2022 to provide caring, custom, comprehensive retirement services that help protect every aspect of clients’ financial lives, from investments and taxes to Medicare, legal and legacy planning.

Kevin and Amanda joined what is now Guardian Wealth a year apart from each other in 2013 and 2014, respectively. They became partners in 2017 before later teaming up to acquire and rebrand the firm to emphasize their values: trust, transparency, compassion and preservation. While Amanda focuses much of her energy on income, taxes and empowering women throughout our local community, Kevin is an estate planning attorney who creates diverse investment, retirement and estate strategies.

Amanda earned her psychology degree from Ferris State University before transitioning to the financial world. She and her husband, Brian, live in St. Charles and are the proud parents of two boys, Reid and Wade. Kevin graduated magna cum laude from the University of St. Francis in Joliet and received his law degree from St. Louis University School of Law. He married his college sweetheart, Ashley, and the couple lives in Pingree Grove with their sons, Roman and Rory, and middle daughter, Riley. Their youngest daughter, Reagan, passed away in 2020.
