Although I began my professional life as a chiropractor, I found my true calling after becoming a financial advisor for Edward Jones. I credit this transition to a financial advisor who spoke to my class about investing during my final semester of college.

I hung on his every word and for the next few years, while working in the chiropractic field, I learned everything I could about investing. I decided to change careers when I realized my true passion was not in the world of healthcare, but in finance.

I've worked for the firm since July 2001. During those years, I've discovered how passionate I am about problem solving and setting and achieving goals. I educate clients about how investments work and how to strategize about financial success by adopting the right mindset. I am assisted by Kirsten Simons, my branch office administrator since 2006,

Areas in which I'm particularly active are planning for retirement and estate considerations. That applies to small and mid-size companies as well as individual investors. What I love about my position as a financial advisor is being entrusted by clients with their dreams and goals and working with them to find a solution. I'm proud of the difference we've made in clients' lives by clearly communicating strategies that address their financial concerns.

I have been married since 1993 and have two children. I enjoy spending time with my family and am a board member at Centralia Christian School. I also serve as a reserve deputy for the Lewis County Sheriff's Department.
