As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I help lead the firm's strategic vision in Thomasville, GA. I utilize dynamic investment methodology and guide our team to craft solutions that help empower our clients to achieve their most important goals. With my many years of investment experience, my practice focuses on successful business owners and professionals. It is my conviction that having a panoramic view of a client's entire financial picture must be in place before effective financial advice can be given. This perspective is the foundation of the 5-step process that help clients define and achieve their financial goals.
I am a CFP® and AAMS™ professional. Over the years, I have evolved into a relentless advocate for simplifying money management concepts and presenting a more straightforward approach to my clients. I've conducted numerous workshops on topics of investing for retirement, protecting your assets and maximizing Social Security, among others.
I have qualified for numerous Edward Jones Financial Leaders Conferences, an honor reserved for the firm's top 800 financial advisors. Edward Jones has nearly 19,000 financial advisors.
I was born in Finland and grew up in England and Australia. After a brief professional tennis career, college tennis brought me to the USA where I met my wife, Julie. We have lived in Thomasville for over 18 years with our four children: Niklas, Jakob, Kathren and Klaire; our Havanese Poodle, Dolly; and cats, Rosie Bell and Graham. I am a member of First Baptist Church, Rotary Club of Thomasville and a YMCA Board Member. I am instrument-rated private pilot and enjoy spending time playing tennis, soccer, biking, snow skiing and watching UGA sports.
The Edward Jones downtown Thomasville location is supported by three branch office administrators – Cindy Sloan, since 2008, Melanie Cromartie, since 2013, and Lezlie Tyson, since 2021. We are dedicated to providing you the highest level of service.
