My journey with Edward Jones began in 1985 at age 11 when I met with our family's financial advisor about opening an account to invest my modest earnings at the time. That day, we discussed the importance of diversification, focusing on quality, the discipline of investing systematically and the power of compounding over time.

Being a financial advisor can mean a lot of things. For me, the key is the relationship between our team and clients. First, we gain a clear understanding of where you are today and what financial goals are most important to you, your family or small business. Next, I work through an established process to define personalized strategies to help you achieve those goals, on time and within your comfort with risk. Finally, we partner together throughout your life to help keep you on track. All of this enables us to help you organize, grow, protect and ultimately transfer your wealth.

I moved to Lawrence in 1992 as a third generation Jayhawk. I owned a successful small business here for nearly 20 years. My two children, Amelia and Luca, are active in theater, orchestra, choir and scouts. We have an energetic dog named Hank, and I enjoy time with my kids, pickleball, KU basketball, scouting, motorcycling, travel and friends.

My senior branch office administrator, Emily Lilienkamp, has over 20 years of experience with our firm. Emily is a Lawrence original and a lifelong KU fan. She and her husband, Brian, are blessed with two adult children and two very spunky dogs.

We work hard so that our clients feel understood, informed, in control and secure about their future.
