I started with Edward Jones at the corporate office in 2006, after graduating from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana with a bachelor's degree in finance. I have worked as a financial advisor for over 15 years and was excited to return to my hometown of Tuscola in 2017. I hold the CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ certification, which helps me better serve clients with complex financial needs.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest my time understanding what you're working toward before you invest your money. It's equally important for me to understand your feelings towards risk to help you stick to your long-term goals and navigate the inevitable periods of volatility. Together, we can build a financial strategy designed just for you and your unique needs.

As our practice has continued to grow and our desire to provide exceptional service continues, we have decided to expand our team. Jessie Hanner is a financial advisor in our branch. She focuses on working with newer as well as experienced investors.

Tonya Thomas, our friendly senior branch office administrator, rounds out our team. Tonya has over 15 years of experience and is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. She is ready to answer all your administrative questions or schedule an appointment, just give her a call.

On a personal note, my wife, Kristin, and I reside in Tuscola along with our two children, Ava and Grayson. In 2019, we added Molly, a mini-goldendoodle, to our family. We are avid Cub fans, enjoy Fighting Illini sports and love to travel. I am an active member of the Tuscola Rotary Club and Tuscola Economic Development, which are both dedicated to serving the community we live in.

At Edward Jones, we want to understand what's important to you. Whether it be retiring comfortably, growing your business or that dream vacation, we're here. Let us show you how we can help you achieve your goals!
