I grew up in Dearborn. My father was an engineer at Ford and my mother was a stay-at-home mom. We enjoyed spending time up North at Lake Ogemaw near West Branch. My wife, Lisa, grew up in Grosse Pointe Woods. She had a career in fitness until she became a stay-at-home mom. We live in Bingham Farms with two children currently at GVSU and CU Boulder.
Upon graduation from the University of Michigan, I chose to follow in my father's footsteps. However, I quickly learned I was more interested in finance than engineering.
I joined Edward Jones in the year 2000. After telling my parents about this career change, I learned that my grandfather, who died when I was born, was a "stock broker". I like to think he guided me to one of my best career decisions.
What drew me to Edward Jones is the culture and environment for people like you and me. The personalized care and attention that is given to clients and employees is unsurpassed in this industry.
I truly love what I do, and I hope it shows in the level of care and attention to detail I show you.
My branch office administrator, Candice Bissonnette, grew up in St. Clair Shores. She began her career as an early childhood and elementary school educator. Candice married Jeff, a construction foreman, who also grew up in St. Clair Shores and they enjoy living there today. They have five children and two grandchildren. Candice enjoys the Renaissance Festival, tarot card reading, learning anything new and spending quality time with her family.
Candice and I want to understand what's important to you. Whether you are planning for your retirement, saving for college or trying to protect what you worked hard for, we will use an established process to build a personalized strategy to help you achieve your goals.
