My passion for investing started at a young age when a teacher mentioned the history of stock market returns. Since then, I have been interested in the investment world.
I graduated from Southern Illinois University with a bachelor's degree in finance in 1999 and began my career as a financial advisor with Edward Jones in 2000. I also hold the AAMS® designation from the College for Financial Planning.
I really enjoy getting to know my clients on a personal level. I want to know your interests and what is important to you so we can create a strategy to help reach your financial goals. The best part of this job is to see your progress over the years and be a part of your accomplishments.
My wife and I have three children and we really enjoy outdoor activities that range from camping, fishing, preparing food plots for hunting (mini-farmer) and just spending time together.
My Senior Branch Office Administrator, Amy Tarrants, is here with me to take care of any and all administrative needs. She is married and has two children.
I welcome the opportunity to learn about you and your financial goals.
