I discovered long-distance running as a teenager. For years, I dreamed of running a marathon and made three unsuccessful attempts to get to the starting line. Each time, I either didn't get around to training, got injured by incorrect training or simply lost focus. A friend suggested that I find an experienced marathoner who would work with me and teach me. I took the advice and one year later, I completed my first 26.2 mile event. Forty-one marathons later, I can state that success comes from being willing to learn from someone else's experience, committing to a plan and sticking with it even when it doesn't feel good.
Today, I utilize those same lessons and disciplines to help my clients achieve their goals. I believe success is a marathon, not a sprint.
My passion, in all that I have done, has been to make a positive difference. My time as a Navy submarine officer, as a teacher and as a school administrator, provided a wealth of experience upon which I draw. I have been blessed through the years to have worked with a wonderful group of clients to help them reach for and attain their goals.
Committed to service, I have served in numerous capacities with the Chamber of Commerce, on the boards of charities, as a volunteer in my church and as a volunteer running coach.
My wife and I are both native Houstonians and both call Edward Jones our home, as does one of our daughters.
We are committed to a role in the financial journeys of our clients. Our branch office administrator, Jaime Jarnagin, brings to our team an unsurpassed level of expertise and client service skills.
You have goals. You have dreams. Let's talk.
