While growing up on the century old family farm in NW Illinois, I learned the value of hard work and saving for a rainy day. My Branch Office Administrator, Deborah Hampe, and I partner together to serve our clients. I work with clients and their CPAs and attorneys, using an established process to build personalized strategies to reach their financial goals and partner together throughout their lives to stay on track.

I began with Edward Jones in 2006 and had the opportunity to move my career to Champaign in 2007. In 2011, I became an Edward Jones limited partner and earned my AAMS® designation. I have served the firm as a regional solutions system coach and as a visiting veteran.

My oldest daughter, Megan, and her family live in the house I grew up in on the family farm while my mother lives in the house next to her. My youngest daughter, Kristen, obtained her master's degree at UIS and is now living in Springfield with her husband, Patrick.

Edward Jones awards I have received are:
Ted Jones Prospecting Award 2008
Edward D. Jones Sr. Founders Achievement Award 2015 & 2016
Ed Armstrong Achievement Award 2017 & 2018

I enjoy volunteering in the community in which I live and work. Before moving to the Champaign area, I was on the Hanover Township Library board and helped form the Hanover Township Park District and was the president until moving to Champaign.

Currently I am a member of the Champaign County Chamber of Commerce, the Gifford Lions club, the Champaign-Urbana Kiwanis club and The Tom Jones Challenger League in which I have held the following club positions:

2010-2011Champaign-Urbana Kiwanis President
2017-2018 Gifford Lions President
2012-present Tom Jones Challenger League coach and board member

Awards I have received are:
2014-2015 Champaign-Urbana Kiwanian of the Year
