I have a passion for helping people and, as an Edward Jones financial advisor, I get to help people, every day, work 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.

I was a high school science teacher for 12 years and though some may think that the transition to the financial industry is unrelated to education, it is actually very closely related because I get to teach people every day. I get to make a difference in people's lives by educating them about the best way to reach their long-term financial goals. Many people think that they will never be able to reach their long-term financial goals, but once we sit down together and go through my established process, they soon discover that their goals may be entirely attainable. The feeling I get from helping people become successful in their goals is what drives me in my business.

Another way I get to help people is by working with our local Habitat for Humanity team. Each week I work with Habitat building houses that are going to help people in our local community. Habitat is a creative outlet for me where I get to work with and meet people who take pride in strengthening our community.

I have lived in Ocala, FL, for over a decade and serve businesses and neighbors in and around this community. I am originally from Indiana and, during basketball season, you can probably hear me and my two children, Mark and Lillian, cheering for my alma mater, The Indiana Hoosiers.

At Edward Jones, relationships are key. In our view, meeting face to face builds strong relationships. We meet when it’s convenient for our clients because we recognize the challenging needs of their businesses and their lives. Contact me today so I can meet you and start helping you build a strong financial foundation for your future.
