The most important part of my job is building a relationship with my clients. Whether it's learning about their family, their hobbies, recent trips or helping them achieve their financial goals, I treat everyone that steps into my office as an individual. My priority is to understand what's important to my clients, use an established process to customize a strategy and then partner with them to keep them on track.

Soon after graduating magna cum laude from Northern Illinois University, my wife and I decided to move to the Chippewa Valley to raise our family. My family and I have enjoyed every minute in West-Central Wisconsin.

I enjoy spending my free time with my wife, our two daughters and our three dogs. Whether we are running the kids around to extracurricular activities, spending the winters snowmobiling or spending the summers doing yard work, taking the dogs for walks or just enjoying all of the outdoor activities that Dunn County has to offer, you'll more than likely find us together.

It has been an honor to serve in the community, not only as a financial advisor, but also with different organizations. I am the past president of Menomonie Area Business Builders, a past president of the Menomonie Area Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals and a sponsor of the Dunn County Fish and Game, the Gifts of the Heart Banquet and the Dunn County Community Foundation.

Ashley Knopps joined my team in January 2023 and has previous experience in marketing and finances; specifically account payables. She is committed to ensuring our clients receive the highest level of service. Ashley grew up in the Twin Cities and relocated to western Wisconsin after meeting her husband. Outside of work, you will find her helping on the farm and enjoying outside activities with their two younger children.

So, whether you're retiring soon and looking for options, a business owner searching for an effective plan, trying to consolidate your assets, planning to start a 529 plan for the kids, interested in long-term care or life insurance, or just wanting to learn about investing, I would really enjoy getting to know you and helping you achieve your goals.
