I grew up in northwest Oklahoma, but I got to Texas as quickly as I could. I love where I live, but I treasure a lot of the life lessons I gained early in life. One of the more eloquent of these lessons came from my grandfather. "Work hard for your money, and then make sure your money works hard for you." This wisdom was delivered one morning when he was supposed to be taking me to school, but I don't remember arriving. Knowing what I do now I am certain this lesson was worth the missed class.
When I graduated from Oklahoma State University with a degree in finance, I had already worked for Edward Jones for nearly a year, with two excellent advisors. During this time I was able to see how Edward Jones cared for their clients. I was impressed beyond belief and knew this was something I had to pursue. I was given the opportunity to begin Edward Jones' financial advisor career development program, which gave me the training necessary to serve my clients in the capacity that I do now. In March 2018 I began serving clients in my current branch. My focus has been and will always be finding what financial goals are important to my clients and partnering with them throughout their life to help achieve those goals.
Outside the office, I enjoy spending most of my time with my wonderful wife, Taylor. We enjoy traveling, entertaining friends and taking our golden retriever, Charlie, on long walks. When I am not spending time with my small family I enjoy hunting, fishing and team roping.
Our branch office administrator is Breanna Pratt. Before coming to Edward Jones, Breanna was a trauma registrar at Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center for 12 years. Breanna plays a crucial role in serving clients. When Breanna is not in the office she enjoys improving her home and yard as well as spending time with her niece, Taylor.
