It's difficult to believe I began my journey as a financial advisor 22 years ago. I never intended to pursue a career in finance, but now I can't imagine doing anything else. Edward Jones has provided the perfect platform which allows me to maintain my life's mission – helping others.

I was a driven student and completed a 6-year program in five years, earning a master's degree in educational psychology from Ball State University by the age of 23. The first eight years of my professional career were spent in the counseling field, first as a substance abuse counselor/probation officer, and secondly as a student relations specialist. At that time, I was recruited to Edward Jones and never looked back.

Besides my children (who are now adults), I love nothing more than my community and my local school. I just completed my 31st year coaching baseball, most as the high school pitching coach, and also serve as president of the Nettle Creek School Board. I can also be seen on weekends playing guitar in my local rock/dance band.

I believe my strengths lie within the relationships I've been able to build and maintain with my clients. Nothing serves these relationships better than open lines of communication and availability.
