Being a teacher for twenty years was extremely rewarding and satisfying. Working with students and helping them develop into contributing members of society was as noble an occupation as you could have; however, I needed a new challenge and as I constantly encouraged my students to take chances, I decided to follow my own advice.

Approaching my 50s, I knew very little about preparing financially for the future, but I was in a good place because I had worked closely with my Edward Jones financial advisor. So closely in fact, I was asked to join the Edward Jones team. Having a desire to help others, I jumped at this opportunity.

Being an educator helped me develop into an excellent listener and communicator. I present information in a way that is easy to understand, explaining things in real-world terms, not industry jargon, allowing you to make appropriate decisions for your situation.

Serving in the Army, being the student body president at TCC and earning a degree at CWU are accomplishments that I treasure; however, my greatest joy is my family.

Dorian, my amazing wife, and I have two incredible children. Jacob is pursuing degrees in computer science and math at CWU and Karlye is following her dream of becoming a sound engineer at DigiPen.
