My journey with Edward Jones began as a client. As a successful businesswoman, I was looking for a strategy for my financial future and found it at Edward Jones. As my career progressed, it became obvious it was time to make a change and become a financial advisor.

I joined Edward Jones because I felt driven to help others by sharing the investment strategies that helped me understand my finances and achieve my financial goals. Being able to share investment strategies with my clients to help them achieve their financial goals aligns beautifully with my passion to help educate and partner together to create an individualized financial strategy they can be excited about.

My experience as a nurse for over 23 years allows me to be a great listener and to understand many of my client's experiences. You can expect clear, complete explanations of investments and recommendations, personalized attention and prompt answers to your questions and concerns.

Originally from Michigan, I have called North Carolina home since 1997. For the past 17 years, I have lived in the Leland area. Whether it is working on systematic solutions or volunteering with committees and programs, such as NAMI, community disaster response or Oak Island Sea Turtle Project, Leland is truly a special place to me.
