It took every penny I had, but in the mid-1980s, I opened my first business (a video store). From there, I purchased and started a liquor store, three "iSOLDit on eBay" stores, two vinyl graphics companies. Eventually I opened an Edward Jones office. I have always liked helping people in one way or another, and my early business experience taught me a lot of valuable lessons on how to serve and care for my Edward Jones clients.

I truly want to help people realize all their dreams in their retirement. I love telling my clients, "Yes, you certainly can afford to do that!"

There's nothing like the personalized approach this is so ingrained in the Edward Jones philosophy of how financial advice should be delivered. Even in today's high-tech world, people crave human interaction, and machines cannot do what humans can -- and that is to care, to empathize and to be there in times of great joy and great concern.

I am very active in my community and serve as the co-chair of the ambassador committee for the Lawrence Chamber of Commerce; sit on the boards for the Kiwanis club of Lawrence, the Reset Center and Lawrence Parks department; and am the founder and club advisor for the Aktion Club of Lawrence (a club designed to benefit individuals with cognitive disabilities).

I have one son who is completing his last year at Indiana University before starting medical school. I have multiple college degrees, and I hold the series 7, 66 and 63 registrations as well as life and health insurance licenses.

I love to travel and have visited 29 countries. In 1992, I was the Indiana goodwill ambassador to Moscow. I import coffee beans from South America, roast, grind and make fantastic cappuccinos. I am an avid cyclist, and I love working in my garden and tackling DIY projects around the house. I'm a loyal Pacers and Colts fan.
