My father told me he'd break both my arms if I followed in his footsteps. He was a cement mason and in my earlier years, I sure poured my share of concrete. I eventually heeded his advice, but that experience gave me the work ethic that still drives me today.
2021 marks my 23nd year as a financial advisor with Edward Jones. I began my career six years earlier in our home office and then realized I wanted to merge what I learned with my passion for working with you, our Edward Jones clients.
My Branch Office Administrator, Lauren Murphy, and I work together to serve our clients. We partner with you to truly understand what is most important to you.
We use an established process to achieve your financial goals and help you stay on track. We also include partnering with your tax and legal professionals to help make sure your needs are met.
And that's not where the story ends. For us, it's more than strictly business. It is in serving our clients where we find great friendships, swap stories and have some fun along the way. Your journey inspires our journey.
Lauren and I volunteer in many capacities, both at Edward Jones and in the community. Currently, I serve as a divisional leader of the Ted Jones Coaching Program, a program designed to coach financial advisors to success. Lauren works along side me to support this valuable program.
My wife, Libby, and I were married in 1993. We have three wonderful children: Taylor, Collin and Justin. We are avid baseball fans, love barbequing, smoking meats and playing cards. Fishing and hunting are favorite pastimes.
Our team is here to help you achieve your financial goals. We invite you to experience the Edward Jones difference, and we truly look forward to getting to know you and your family.
