I serve the community as a financial advisor, advising on and assisting with the financial affairs of a select group of families and businesses in the Jacksonville and Springfield, IL areas. I have served in this capacity since 2000.

I am assisted by Senior Branch Office Administrators Alison Yording and Frances Brockhouse. We share a three-part focus: To enable clients to retire with dignity, educate their children and leave a lasting legacy. Our team employs a highly disciplined, deeply personal approach to help people reach their financial goals.

From 2011-2014, our team qualified for Edward Jones' Financial Advisors Leaders Conference, an honor reserved for the firm's top financial advisors and branch office administrators.

In 2018, our team was awarded the Edward Jones Circle of Success, recognizing branch offices exceptional achievement in building client relationships.

In addition, I earned the AAMS® designation in 2007. The College of Financial Planning awards the AAMS® designation to individuals who successfully complete a 12-module professional education program, pass a final examination, commit to its code of ethics and agree to pursue continuing education.

I am a 19-season veteran of amateur league football and was, upon retirement from football, inducted into the American Football Association Hall of Fame in 2010 and the Minor League Football News AAA Hall of Fame in 2013. I am active in the local Kiwanis Club and coach Junior High Basketball.

My wife, Tiffany, and I reside in Springfield with our children, Brock and Brynn.
