I began my career as a middle school social studies teacher in Rome, GA. After 12 years (1994-2006) of teaching and getting a master's degree in educational leadership, my wife and I moved to Columbia, SC to be closer to family. During our 12 years (2006-2018) in Columbia, I served as a school principal and earned a Doctor of Education degree.

As public-school educators for 20-plus years, my wife and I made sure that we were on track to meet our retirement goals. However, like most families, there were several unexpected life events that took place during our careers. One of those events was that we needed to move closer to my wife's family in Virginia to help take care of an aging parent. At this stage of our lives, this transition really made us think about our finances and future.

As a result, we made the decision that I would transition from the education field to the financial advising field. Edward Jones is the only company that I considered when it came to this change. First of all, I appreciate and trust the service that Edward Jones provides for our family. Second, I know other financial advisors who have had very fulfilling and rewarding careers with Edward Jones.

My passion as an Edward Jones financial advisor is to meet and serve as many families as I can that will benefit from my services and experiences both personally and professionally.
