As early as my 10th grade year in high school, I knew I wanted to be a financial advisor. I just didn't know how to go about getting there and, not having a college degree, the opportunity did not materialize.

The United States Air Force provided opportunity. After enlisting, I promptly began my quest for a college degree by going to night school. After earning my bachelor's degree in business and management, I went to Officer Training School and received a commission. This led to many leadership opportunities, much travel, and two master's degrees. I retired as a Lieutenant Colonel and began a new career.

My high school dream of becoming a financial advisor became a reality when I was hired by Edward Jones. My office is in Willmar, MN where I continually help manage the financial affairs of families and businesses. There is nothing more satisfying than helping a client achieve one of their goals such as saving for retirement, college, emergency needs or paying off a mortgage, providing for survivor needs and assisted care needs. Identifying and helping achieve client goals is our specialty.

Community involvement has played a large role in our success. I actively participate in the Willmar Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and the Willmar Rotary Club, particularly the Rockin' Robbins Summer concerts. Military organizations include the American Legion, AMVETS and the Reserve Officers' Association.

None of this would have been possible without the help of my family. My wife, Julie, and I have three grown children and ten grandchildren.
