Please allow me to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Chris Recek, a financial advisor for the financial services firm, Edward Jones, here in Forest Grove, OR.

After graduating from Forest Grove High School, I served on active duty in the United States Army as a military police soldier for over eight years. Some of my hobbies include Crossfit, running, hiking, biking, playing golf and traveling. I am also a wine club member at several local wineries.

After serving in the United States Army, I began working for Kaiser Permanente as a security officer. Later, I began working at the Kaiser Permanente Westside Hospital in the emergency room as a patient access representative, where my job included registering patients and assisting with medical insurance and billing. During my time at Kaiser, I worked the night shift to continue my education at Portland State University.

I graduated from Portland State University in 2016 with a bachelor's degree in business administration management and leadership. After completing my degree, I began my career with Edward Jones as a financial advisor.

In addition, I hold the CFP® certification. To gain the CFP® certification, a financial advisor must pass the CFP® Certification Examination and the CFP Board's Fitness Standards for Candidates and Registrants and agree to abide by the CFP Board's Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility.

One of my personal goals was to have a small farm on my property just outside of Forest Grove with cows, chickens and pigs. After a few years, I was able to make that goal a reality. Now, I am focused on increasing that small farm by adding more fences and increasing my small herd of Dexter cows. What are some of your financial goals and how can our team assist you with reaching those dreams?

We work to help individual investors develop an investment strategy geared toward their unique, long-term goals. Whether you need to save for a child's college education, reduce taxes or plan for retirement, I can help.

At Edward Jones, we focus on serving the financial needs of individual investors of all ages and financial means. We have built our business by treating our clients as we would want to be treated, a simple idea that still makes sense in today's complex marketplace.
