The best decisions are made with a clear view of what you want to accomplish. I believe it is important to invest time in developing a thorough understanding of what is important to you before money is invested. While working closely with you, I will help you clearly define your financial goals and look at comprehensive approaches to meeting your needs and determining an appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I will then coordinate with you, your CPA, attorney and other personal professionals to implement and monitor your success.

In 2009, I began my Edward Jones career as a financial advisor in West Michigan Lakeshore area after managing money independently for three years. Prior to that, from 1997 to 2009, I served as president of both Red Apple Healthcare and Strasler, Inc. From 1988 to 2007, I served as vice president of Compliance Systems Inc. and Greatland Corp. While I enjoyed many successes with these companies, I wanted to be able to impact people’s lives on a deeper and more personal level by refocusing my skills and talents. This led me to Edward Jones as the best fit and common vision of how to help individuals improve and maintain personal financial health.

I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business management from Davenport University. I hold federal securities registrations and state insurance licenses.

I moved to West Michigan in 1980 and have lived in the Lakeshore area in Spring Lake since 1998. I have two sons, Luke, 24, and Noah, 22. My daughter, Bailey, is 19 years old. All three are currently pursuing degrees at Grand Valley State University.

I take an active role in the community that I live in and serve as an officer in the Fruitport Lions Club, a member of the Grand Haven Eagles Aerie and a member of the Muskegon Rotary Club.
