We are the financial team for those wanting to retire… With Purpose!

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to understand your purpose, your priorities in life, your goals and why they are important to you, before investing your money. Whether you're planning for retirement, saving for the education of your children or grandchildren, protecting the financial future of the ones you care for the most or creating your lasting legacy, we're here for you.

After joining Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 1999, and opening the firm's first branch office in Aurora, Ohio, I later earned the AAMS™ and CRPC™ designations and became a limited partner of our firm. I also led over 50 Edward Jones branch teams in Northeast Ohio as a regional leader (2016-2022) and general partner (2019 to 2022). Since 1999, I have been happily married to Julie Harris Krebs and have resided in Aurora. Julie is the owner of a virtual marketing and advertising business, Virtual Brand Advisors. When we aren't serving our respective clients, we enjoy sharing quality time with family and friends, travel and cooking.

Karen Haus, our Senior Branch Office Administrator, has partnered with me since 2000 to provide first-rate client service. She is a former math teacher with an undergraduate degree from the College of Wooster and a master's degree from Northwestern University. As a limited partner of our firm, Karen is dedicated to providing responsive, personal service. Karen resides in Aurora and when not serving our clients, enjoys music (especially singing), both professional and community theater (on and off stage), spending time with family and walking.

As a branch team, our purpose is to help you achieve the personal, professional and financial independence and security to live your American Dream. Working together to achieve your goals, we will develop strategies that are aligned with your personal values.
