I value my upbringing on my family's second-generation farm just south of Colton, SD. The lessons of integrity, accountability, hard work, dependability and the importance of family are the same qualities that guide me each day to help the people we serve to maximize their return on life.

My driving passion is my family which includes my wife, Stephanie, and our two adult sons, Connor and Cole. And not to be left out, our loyal and loving 7-year-old yellow lab, Cash, who loves my wife most.

I have been serving the Dell Rapids area since 2002. As a CFP® professional, I have worked with a variety of clients over the years. I have made the most impact with multi-generational families, farmers, business owners of small and large companies and individual investors approaching or in retirement.

Our team has been recognized at our firms Managing Partner's conference for the past 16 years. This event represents the top 400 teams out of our 19,000-plus offices and brings together the best of the best, providing opportunities to interact with one another as well as the firm's leadership. In addition to myself, our team consists of Barb Mergen and Lesley Simanek, who serve in key supporting roles to serve our clients deeply and help make doing business with us simple. Together, they have a combined 46 years of experience exceeding expectations. I am blessed to have them.

As your Edward Jones branch team, we excel at helping our clients understand and achieve their financial goals through our established process to build personalized strategies. Our clients and their families trust us to know the most intimate details of their lives so that we can better serve them. We take pride in making the complex simple, so that you feel understood, informed, secure and in control of your future.
