After being a client for more than twenty years, I joined the Edward Jones family to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others. Whether planning for retirement, saving for education or preparing for the unexpected, I want to understand what is most important to you.

We use an established process to help you achieve your long-term goals. Understanding that everyone's situation is specific to themselves, we make a point to build deep relationships with our clients and partner with them over their lifetime.

Additionally, our team is committed to providing financial guidance to business owners and families that seek consultative advice with a high level of personal service. We work together with your professionals, including CPAs, estate planning attorneys and life insurance specialists, to ensure that all the pieces of your financial puzzle fit together.

Prior to Edward Jones, I served within the U.S. House of Representatives and Missouri State University system. My four beautiful daughters and I live in West Plains with our spunky cocker spaniel, Bella, and our temperamental cat, Skippy. We are active members of the community and of the greater faith community of Pomona Christian Church.

When not in the branch office, I can be found coaching the West Plains Waves USA Swim Team, reading, traveling and volunteering with various organizations such as Missouri State University, West Plains Chamber of Commerce, Noon Rotary Club, West Plains Civic Center and the West Plains Public Library.

My senior branch office administrator, Linda Cates, has had the honor of serving our clients with Edward Jones for 15 years and proudly represents the community of Thomasville in Oregon County. She and her husband, Bill, will celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary soon with their two daughters, son-in-law and four grandchildren.

We welcome the opportunity to learn about you, your family and your goals. Let us show you how we can make a difference.
