Known as Jay, I was born in Newark, NJ, and later raised in Charlottesville. Helping others has been an integral part of who I am and I'm happy to have the opportunity to help those throughout the country reach their financial goals. I've been in the financial industry for over five years and wrote my first children's book, Mahogany goes to Wall Street, which introduces the financial market in a story format.

I'm a firm believer in that your experiences shape who you are. At the age of 7, my father passed away. As in most homes, he was the patriarch of the family. Following his death, I witnessed my mother, a new widow, mismanage a large insurance policy due to her lack of financial education and poor financial advice – sometimes you don’t know what you don’t know. This ultimately led to the loss of my family home, financial hardships and me pulling out of college, only to later pay for it myself. That experience put financial literacy at the forefront of my mind and showed me the value of the entire family being financially educated.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, clients can expect a high level of service and a personalized approach. I believe it's important to invest my time to understand what you're working toward before you invest your money. We strive to make sure clients feel heard and that we understand their unique stories. We work to help clients understand the investment world in terms they can relate to. We offer the investments, services and tools our clients need to achieve their financial future.

I am an active member of the community; I'm a committee member for The Arc of the Piedmont gala, I volunteer at Community Investment Collaborative and I'm a member of Black Women of Charlottesville Virginia, Boss Babes C'ville and Common House. I enjoy traveling abroad with my boyfriend, Keith, owner of The Pie Guy, and spending time with my nieces and nephews – I pride myself on being the best auntie! I love plants, water sports, trying new food and DIY projects.

I look forward to working with you to achieve your life goals and be a part of your family! Give me a call today or message me on LinkedIn.
