My favorite part of being a financial advisor is getting to build relationships with my clients. I love sending a little gift when a new grandbaby is born, getting a picture from a dream vacation or giving them a hug when someone they love passes away and telling them I am here for them. Yes, we discuss goals, allocations, rates of return, insurance, etc., but I genuinely love hearing about all the great things happening in my clients’ lives.

When my clients work with me, there is absolute transparency. I am transparent on my costs, investment selection and the strategies we use to reach your goals. People desire and expect honesty and integrity from those they do business with. I also love telling clients the Edward Jones story – we are a partnership; we have 100 years of industry experience and have a culture of teamwork. Clients and I are a team – we partner together to reach your long-term goals.

My wonderful branch office administrator, Debra Thomas, is my business teammate. She is the glue that holds the office together. She keeps up with our appointments, our personal goals as an office and takes care of all administrative needs of our clients. We even have people that call in that want to speak to her instead of me! I hear almost daily how lucky I am to have her from clients and how much they appreciate her and her help.

Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Betty Kay, and 3-year-old son, Ross. Our family is looking forward to the arrival of our second child in late Summer 2021. My hobbies include hunting, golfing and watching football. I am also a member of Edgewood Baptist, the Salvation Army (board member) and the Rotary Club. In addition, we Edward Jones financial advisors in Hopkinsville pride ourselves in participating in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s and Relay for Life.
Now that you've gotten to know a bit about myself and Debra, we'd love to get to know you. Feel free to call or stop by – we look forward to connecting with you.
