As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money. The financial world can sometimes seem like foreign territory; I can work one-on-one with you to help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family.
I came to Edward Jones in 2000 because I wanted to help individual investors work toward achieving their financial goals. In addition, my senior branch office administrator, Marcia, is always here to help with your needs. She and I have worked together for 15 years to help ensure each client feels welcomed and valued.
Originally from the great state of Ohio and a graduate of The Ohio State University, my wife, Kathy, and I moved to Chicago in 1997 and eventually took up permanent residence in Evanston, IL, with our two daughters who keep us busy with their volleyball commitments!
Serving in various community organizations, I've been active in both the Park Ridge and Evanston areas. Currently, I am a member and past president of the Park Ridge "Noon" Kiwanis. I also serve as a board member for the Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse.
If you spent more time last year planning your vacation than planning your retirement, now is the time to take action. Preparing for retirement is like a cross-country journey. While it may seem like a long distance to cover, it starts with the first step of determining where you are today and where you want to be. Only then can you develop a strategy designed to help you achieve your long-term goals. I can help.
