In 2000, I began my career as a financial advisor serving clients in the Chicago area. I became a limited partner with the firm in 2006. In 2009, I relocated back to Western Michigan to assume responsibility for the downtown Grand Rapids, MI office.
A native to Michigan, I earned a bachelor's degree from Hope College. In addition, I am Series 7, 63 and 66 registered.
I have held numerous national and regional roles within Edward Jones and have served as a founding member of the women's initiative new growth strategies, West Michigan Marketing Committee chairperson, growth leader, field trainer and mentor. I am currently program leader for Optimize Your Practice and traveling throughout the country presenting about practice optimization strategies.
Since joining Edward Jones, I have completed five asset-sharing programs and have recruited more than 10 financial advisors to the firm. From 2016 through 2021, I qualified for the Managing Partner's Conference and I have attended six of Barron's Top 100 Women Advisor Summits and am a two-time attendee to Barron's Top 100 Summit..
I am passionate about serving my community. Currently, I serve on the Holland Home Foundation Board and Western Theological Seminary Board of Trustees and am a Young Life Committee Member.
With regard to my talented branch office administrators; Naomi Stirdivant has been with the firm for nine years; Abby Schoolmaster, six years, and Kate VanderWel recently joined our team. They are committed to ensuring that you are always highly satisfied. They will work thoroughly to address all administrative aspects of your accounts.
