Tyler Corn CFA


Originally from North Carolina, Tyler Corn moved to St. Augustine, FL in 2006 to begin his career in Finance working as a Commercial Banker with Prosperity Bank.

Wanting to develop a truly independent advisory practice that puts the interests of their clients above all else, Tyler and David Upchurch partnered with colleagues to form Barnett Wealth Advisors in 2014 and eventually launched Upchurch & Corn Advisors from that practice in 2018. Upchurch & Corn Advisors offers holistic financial planning services in Northeast FL. Tyler also serves as a Strategic Partner to firms in South Carolina and Kentucky, leveraging his experience in Investment Management and Financial Planning.

Tyler lives in Jacksonville, FL with his wife Lauren, daughters Avery and Caroline, and their dog Emma. He enjoys spending time with all his girls, fly fishing and generally being outdoors, and most of all when all those things intersect. He holds through LPL his Series 7, 66 and 24 licenses and is a Chartered Financial Analyst and active member of the CFA Society of Jacksonville.
