I began my Edward Jones career in November 1994 as a financial advisor in Danville, VA. I have been with Edward Jones for over 27 years.
I attended Danville Community College and graduated with an associate's degree in business administration in 1991. A 1994 graduate of Radford University, I hold a bachelor's degree in finance.
In 2004, I earned my CFP® certification. The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. awards CFP® certifications to individuals who meet the board's requirements for professionalism in financial services.
In 2015, I attended the Financial Advisors Leaders Conference, which recognizes financial advisors who are among the leaders in the financial services firm. I was among 1,003 financial advisors who qualified out of the firm's then-12,000 financial advisors in the U.S. and Canada.
In 2015 and 2018, I received the firm's Spirit of Caring Award, designed to recognize those who exemplify the values, culture and spirit of giving back.
I have been involved in Boy Scouts since I was 12, and have held numerous leadership positions as an adult Scout.
My wife, Dr. Lauren Stone, and I have two children, Anna Kathryn and Brent. Lauren has been a doctor of audiology at Audiology Hearing Aid Associates in Danville, VA, since 1998.
