Maryann C. Sprout Administrative Client Services/Senior Front Office Associate

Peoria, IL


Before joining DVI in 2016, my experiences as a court liaison, legal assistant, and loan processor prepared me for the high level of detail and accuracy needed for my work at DVI. Double-checking everything before it goes out the door is second nature to me.


General studies at ICC.

What are the values that drive you in your professional and personal life?

At all times, I strive to be caring, hard-working, and dependable. It’s important to me to be helpful to clients, my fellow Associates, and to the greater community.

What is your favorite thing about DVI?

I love the story of DVI, especially the rich history of David Vaughan’s career, hobbies, artwork collection, and love of jazz. Even as the Firm has evolved over the years, David’s spirit and legacy are embedded in the culture. A special fact about DVI: We have received Orchid Awards for the building’s grounds and landscaping thanks to the excellent maintenance of our groundskeeper, Chris Downs.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time?

I love to listen to most genres of music: classical, country, rock, jazz… I enjoy reading, painting, and going for walks. Of course, I also love to spend time with my children and grandchildren—we like playing board games and outdoor games, or just catching up and talking about our days.

There’s a Team Behind Every DVI Team Member

DVI is not one person. Our clients come to understand that although they may interact with particular team members more than others, there is a multi-disciplinary team of professionals hard at work for them, collaborating each and every day on their behalf.

Fiduciary from the Start

Our founder, David Vaughan, created DVI over 45 years ago with an instinctive fiduciary mindset. He wanted to help his neighbors and community members grow and protect the financial success they had achieved in their lives. By building trust, he built a business that has grown in size and services. Today, we carry David's legacy forward with more comprehensive offerings to serve the ever-changing needs of our clients in Central IL and Central FL.
