I am Brett Harper and I love helping people. I was born and raised in the great state of West Virginia. My mother is Brenda Nichols Harper from the Clendenin and Charleston areas. My father is Dr. Tim Harper and my stepmother is Vicki Harper both of South Charleston.

I have a master's degree in finance and administration with honors from Colorado State University. I also hold a bachelor's degree in communication from Fairmont State University. I spent my late 20s and early 30s in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, enjoying the outdoors and serving my community there.

While in Colorado, I was a program director for a nationally renowned treatment company, Saint Paul Sober Living, LLC and I was a law enforcement officer in Eagle and Garfield counties. Both of these jobs brought great joy to my heart, as I helped people on their toughest days. Now, I get to help people be prepared for tough days and guide them to their best days!

I chose Edward Jones because of their ethical background and the sound guidance they provide to their clients. The ethical and moral guidelines Edward Jones uses are aligned with my moral compass, making them a perfect fit for me. I want to help clients who also have these guidelines.

I work with a variety of clients, from young couples to retirees to business owners, who are serious, long-term investors. By getting to know what's most important in my clients' lives, I am able to create a personalized strategy to serve them. I love sitting down with a client and brainstorming about their dreams and then showing them how we can help make it happen. My enthusiasm for my career hopefully rubs off on my clients as we breathe life into their dreams.
