August 2012, my Dad passed away after a short battle with cancer. While making his final arrangements, I quickly realized that he had not given much consideration to his final wishes, much less how to pay for them. As an only child, it was up to me to help my Mother navigate insurance claims, the Social Security Administration, banks and the funeral home.
This life-changing event led me to a deeper appreciation for those in the financial services industries and ultimately to my career at Edward Jones, where my practice allows me to do what my Dad taught me to do - Serve. I serve my neighbors in the communities of West Frisco and Little Elm, Texas.
After graduating from Jacksboro High School, I decided to join the world's greatest Air Force. I served in a variety of positions in the intelligence career field during my nearly 23 years of service. I was entrusted with the opportunity to lead organizations from small teams of only a few service members to large groups of up to 600, both at home and in a deployed environment. It was during my Air Force career that I realized my passion and calling for serving others. Specifically, I spent over 20 years helping others set and achieve their personal and professional goals.
During my time in the Air Force, I completed my bachelor's degree and my Master of Arts in management and leadership degree.
After military "Retirement," my wife, our three children and I decided to return to the DFW area to write our next chapter. I had a goal of serving others as an entrepreneur and found my calling as a financial advisor at Edward Jones.
I love helping others set goals and reach their financial potential. Personal finance is just that... Personal. I spent 23 years serving my country and my Airmen, now I serve my clients. Let's partner together to help get you where you want to be!
