As a second-generation Edward Jones financial advisor, I was just a child when my Dad began his career with Edward Jones. While I didn't fully understand everything he did at the time, many things I'll always remember. I remember going into his office off Canton Road in Marietta regularly. I remember my Dad always being so proud to introduce me to his clients. I remember his clients being so nice to me, and treating me like family. My Dad loved his clients and his clients loved him. He was highly respected, worked hard, made a meaningful difference in the lives of others, and he did so with honor and integrity. Because of that, it was always my childhood dream to grow up to be like my Dad, a financial advisor with Edward Jones.

I graduated from Kennesaw State University with a business degree in 2005, worked two years in a corporate job to gain experience, and ultimately joined Edward Jones in October of 2007. I began serving clients in March of 2008. Although my Dad retired in 2017, many of the clients I serve to this day, are clients that he introduced me to when I was just a child. As a financial advisor, I help clients build their wealth, protect their wealth, enjoy their wealth and eventually transition their wealth to their loved ones. In addition to being a financial advisor, I am also a limited partner with Edward Jones and have held a variety of leadership positions at the firm.

As much as I love my career, I love my family even more. I'm blessed to have married my high school sweetheart 18 years ago. She is a registered nurse, who now stays home with our two wonderful daughters, and homeschools one of them. My family loves animals as we have two dogs, a cat, bunnies, guinea pigs, fish and a turtle. I'm highly allergic to all, but as my daughters tell me, "suck it up, buttercup". I coach my youngest daughters' softball team, and we love to travel and eat.

I'm also fortunate to work with my wonderful and talented branch office administrator, Lisa Cornett. Lisa has been with Edward Jones for over 10 years and is a proud graduate of the University of Tennessee. She keeps the office running smoothly and handles many of the day-to-day needs that our clients have, and she does so with unmatched client service excellence. Lisa has three children and one grandchild who affectionately calls her "Lolli".
