When I first became familiar with Sparta and Alleghany County, I was immediately struck with the friendliness, generosity and welcoming spirit that I encountered in everyone I met. I quickly realized that this is where I wanted to make my home. Within a few years, an opportunity to do just that presented itself. I was selected to be the CFO at Alleghany Memorial Hospital and moved here in 2013. So many people here helped me in so many ways and made me feel welcome and a part of the community.

Most of my career has been spent in healthcare finance. I enjoyed being a part of organizations that were so important to the community they served. Knowing that, in some small way, I was serving the healthcare needs of my community brought me the most satisfaction.

The satisfaction that results from service to my community led me to become active in the Sparta Lions Club and to serve as a board member of the Alleghany County Community Foundation, The Alleghany Council on Aging, and the Alleghany Arts Council. In my spare time, I enjoy working with my honeybees on the farm.

In 2018, my healthcare finance career ended. I didn't know what life had in store for me next, but I knew that I didn't want to leave Sparta and Alleghany County.

So, when an opportunity to become a financial advisor with Edward Jones was presented to me, I quickly realized that it was a perfect opportunity to combine my finance experience with my desire to serve my community and its residents.

I believe that understanding what is important to you is an essential first step to successfully working together. Once I have that understanding, I will work with you to determine where you are on the path to your goals, develop a plan to help you achieve those goals and periodically review our progress to keep you on track, adjusting our plan as circumstances change.

I am proud to be a part of this community and look forward to serving you in the pursuit of your financial goals.
