I began my career as a financial advisor with Edward Jones in 2001, opening the first branch office in Cottage Grove, MN. I became a limited partner with Edward Jones in 2014.
My primary goal is to help individual investors develop an investment strategy geared toward their unique long-term goals. Whether your goal is to retire early, educate your children, manage your income in retirement or save money on taxes, I will work with you to understand what is most important to you. I use an established 5-step process to build personalized strategies and partner with you throughout your life to help you stay on track.
One of my strengths is my ability to simplify my clients' financial lives by helping them consolidate accounts and keeping them regularly informed so they understand their financial strategy. Helping clients achieve their financial goals is truly an honor and a responsibility I don't take lightly.
My branch team also includes senior branch office administrator, Shelley Etter. She has been my office partner since 2005 and together we are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible.
But we're not alone. Edward Jones has thousands of people and advanced technology supporting our office so that we can better help you reach your long-term financial goals. In addition, we welcome the opportunity to work with your attorney, accountant and trusted professionals to deliver a comprehensive strategy that leverages everyone's expertise. Working together we can help you develop a complete, tailored strategy to help you achieve your financial goals.
My wife, Anne, and I have been married for over 25 years and our family includes three daughters: Abigail, Sydney and Paige, and two dachshunds, Boo and Marley.
I graduated from the University of Minnesota with a Bachelor of Arts degree. Go Gophers!
