My passion is people. While I may deal in numbers, researching investments and developing financial strategies, what I’m really passionate about is people: working with my clients to help them achieve their long-term financial goals.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, my branch team and I value truly personal relationships based on a deep understanding of your unique financial needs. We then establish a solutions-based approach tailored to your individual goals and provide exceptional service.

Originally from Lebanon, KY, I graduated from Centre College with a B.A. in history and English. After starting with Edward Jones, I moved to Middlesboro to take over for retiring financial advisor, Steve Obermann, who established the first Edward Jones office here in 1985.

I hope to leave a legacy beyond providing financial advice as well, and I actively serve the Middlesboro community, including serving as l of our Middlesboro Main Street board, chairing our Levitt AMP Middlesboro Music Series and sitting on the local advisory board for the Appalachian Regional Hospital of Middlesboro. I am also active in our local church.

My wife, Kayla, and I enjoy hiking – along with our dog, Sadie, spending time with family, cooking together and cycling. We recently welcomed the birth of our first child, Stella Katherine Noel in December of 2021. We are thrilled to have a growing family and trying to savor every moment with her.

At Edward Jones, we’re focused on you. The firm has thousands of people and advanced technology supporting our office so that we can help you reach your long-term financial goals. All aspects of our business are aligned to help us better understand and meet our clients’ unique goals and needs – whether that be planning for or living in retirement, paying for education, preparing for the unexpected, or planning your estate or inheritance.

I would like to help provide the answers to your questions so you can make informed, financially sound decisions. Please contact us to discuss your situation and options.
