Prior to Edward Jones, I worked for a national marketing firm as a consultant to hundreds of business owners throughout eastern Tennessee, southwest Virginia, and western North Carolina. I enjoyed watching those businesses thrive and their owners prosper. In the same way, I knew I'd enjoy helping individuals and families just like mine achieve their own financial goals, whatever they may be. That led me to Edward Jones.
I was raised in Piney Flats, TN where my family and I still reside today. I earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from East Tennessee State University in 2002.
My career with Edward Jones began in Johnson City, TN in the Spring of 2017, and I moved to my office here in Elizabethton in April 2019.
My wife, Jenn, and I were married in 2009. We have two children, Addison and Noah. We are very involved in our home church, Calvary Church in Johnson City. Jenn is a local eye doctor, Addison is a super cute, full-of-life and smiles little girl (Daddy's princess), and Noah is a handsome, very medically-fragile little boy who requires around-the-clock nursing care in our home due to an extremely rare genetic condition. He captures the heart of everyone who meets him. With him, I know firsthand how life can deal you cards that you never in a million years expected or anticipated. As your financial advisor, we'll work closely together to not only evaluate your financial goals, but also make sure we have strategies in place to be prepared for the unexpected, and to help keep who you love the most financially protected.
Our goal is to provide easy-to-understand education and investment advice to help you meet long-term financial goals, and focus on who and what are most important in your life.
My branch office administrator, Jan, and I would welcome the opportunity to meet and get to know you! Call us today for an appointment.
