As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest my time understanding what is most important to you and your family. Working closely with you, your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy to help you attain the short- and long-term goals we set to accomplish. We do this by partnering together throughout your life to help keep you on track toward those goals.

In 2017, I retired from military service after 23 1/2 years and joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor, opening the firm’s fourth branch office in Fuquay Varina, NC.

I started my career in the military as an Enlisted Sailor in the U.S. Navy and served eight years before applying and being accepted into the U.S. Army Warrant Officer flight program in 2001. I completed an in-service transfer from Navy to Army and pursued my dream of becoming a helicopter pilot. I lived that dream for the next 16 years in the U.S. Army and flew the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter.

After serving my country for that period of time, I am extremely excited to continue serving you and everyone in the community as an Edward Jones financial advisor.

My spouse, Melissa Hernandez, and I have been married for over 25 years. We have three amazing children, two sons, and one daughter. My family and I have lived in Fuquay Varina since 2008.

My branch office administrator, Mary Coots, is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. Please don’t hesitate to call on her with questions concerning your statement, dividends, stock certificates or your account in general.

We provide highly personalized service. All aspects of our business are aligned to help us better understand and meet our clients’ unique goals and needs.
