As a kid, I was great at saving money, but I had no clue about investing. I started to look into investing after two years of working corporate life, thinking "how much do I need to save to retire at 55, because I don't know how much longer I can take this." With that I began my saving career with Edward Jones, and eventually my exit from big corporate life to be come an Edward Jones financial advisor myself.
I started my career with Edward Jones in 2004 because I wanted to have a meaningful career with a family-friendly company in my local community. I find great purpose in helping people save for their life goals, but more importantly that I help them get a great return on life.
I love to explain investing in easy to understand, funny analogies, which is why I have milk cows sitting on my desk. It is all about how much milk the cow gives you, not how fat she is.
Originally from St. Charles, MI, I moved to the area in 2003. My husband, Luke, and I have three amazing kids. They are all their own rays of sunshine, and I am so thankful I get to be their mom. If you are at any of their sporting events, basketball, golf, cross country, track, swimming or football, I am the proud, short, loud blond cheering on the side line, all good stuff!
