Finding your passion as it relates to your career is challenging, but, when you find it - you will know. After earning my MBA in 2002, I spent a decade working in operations management for a manufacturing company. All my time spent managing employees, completing training courses and reviewing balance sheets/income statements were preparing me for the work I do today. When I finally made the career change, it was an answered prayer, and I knew right away that I had found my passion - serving others. It is what I was built to do. I love meeting people and learning their stories, meeting their loved ones and developing a financial strategy that helps them confidently work to achieve their dreams.

I currently live in Loudon with my wife, Sarah, and our two young boys, Thomas and Cannon. We love living in the Tellico Village community where my office is located. We enjoy being minutes from beautiful lakes and trails and just a short drive to the mountains. My family and I enjoy worshipping at First Baptist Church Tellico Village. I am also very active in the Tellico Village Pickleball Club and enjoy competing in tournaments in the East TN area.

My career with Edward Jones began in 2013. I hold the CRPC® designation and AAMS® designation and serve on the Edward Jones leadership team for the Knoxville area. I currently serve on the Loudon County Education Foundation Board and am also an active member of various other civic groups including Kiwanis and the Loudon County Chamber.

Entering the world of investing and trusting your money with another person can be intimidating, even scary. Those that know me well, know that I love to laugh. My goal is to make my clients feel comfortable at every step of the process. My branch team includes senior branch office administrator, Sheila Janssen. If you are unsure about working with a financial advisor, contact our office. We will do our best to help you find the best solution to fit your needs. We look forward to serving you!
