As your Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to spend time in understanding your goals before investing your hard-earned money. Collaborating with you, your CPA and attorney, we can help determine an appropriate financial strategy to help you and your family reach those goals. Whether it's retirement, college, estate strategies or saving for that next big purchase, we can partner together.
I was born and raised in Pella, IA. I went on to graduate from Trinity Christian College in Palos Heights, IL, in 2013. There, I earned a bachelor's degree in accounting with a finance minor.
I started my Edward Jones career in 2016 serving the Le Mars community. I transitioned to the Rock Valley community at the beginning of 2018 and now serve clients from our downtown location. Edward Jones has been a community staple since 2002. Within our firm, I'm a financial advisor mentor providing one-on-one guidance to others as they start their own Edward Jones branch. I currently hold the Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor® designation.
My wife, Abby, and I have two kids, Hazel and Isaiah. Abby is a full-time mom and spends time volunteering in the community. I enjoy spending time with my family and watching my Iowa State Cyclones, Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears. I also love being outdoors fishing, grilling, hunting or taking care of my lawn. Ask me about my homemade jerky or bacon and maybe I'll share!!
My branch office administrator, Susan Eshuis, has been with Edward Jones for seven years and is dedicated to helping our clients and building relationships with them. Please don't hesitate to call her with any questions concerning your accounts.
Everything we do is to serve you and your family. We are currently registered in 22 states and have the technology to partner with you no matter where you call home. Get in touch with us through the "Contact Me" section in the top-right corner to see how we can help!
