While growing up on our farm near Marshall, Mo., my parents and three siblings were all hard working people. Dad was a county agent. Mom was a nurse. We all worked on our farm to make ends meet.

There came a tumultuous time in our family’s life when my parents knew they needed help or they would never achieve their goals of sending four kids to college and being able to retire.

This led them to work with Tom, our local Edward Jones financial advisor, one of the wisest financial decisions of their lives. Through the years, Tom helped my parents develop and implement the strategies that enabled them to achieve these goals and not outlive their money.

Tom and his wife, Susan, became dear family friends. Their lives have had an incredibly positive impact on three generations of our family so far. Their influence led me to become an Edward Jones financial advisor in 2005. In the same way that Tom helped my family achieve their financial goals, the focus of my branch team is to help our current and future clients do the same.

My background helps to accomplish that goal and includes being a pro football player, a teacher/coach and I've had years of working with nonprofit organizations to help them achieve their financial goals. My degree is from the University of Missouri at Columbia. I earned an AAMS® designation, Series 7, Series 63, Series 66 and insurance licenses.

My supportive wife, Donna, and I have two sons (Ethan and Evan) and a daughter-in-law (Marce). I’m active in our church. My work in our community includes 10 years as chair of the Summer Creek BizCom (A project of the LHA Chamber of Commerce), and I serve on the executive leadership team of the GLH Heart Walk.

We are best suited to serve clients who are serious about achieving their long-term financial goals and want to have confidence they are making wise decisions about their financial future. If that describes you, please contact me. I would be honored to visit with you.
