After several years working as a marketing consultant to hundreds of business owners throughout the region and getting to know their business goals and aspirations, I felt it was time for a career change. 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 began my career with Edward Jones in Johnson City, TN in 2017, and moved to the office here in Elizabethton in 2019. I feel it's important to give back to your community any way you can. Therefore, I have joined the Kiwanis Club of Elizabethton to help support the many outreaches they do for local families, for kids, and those who are less fortunate around us. I am also active in my local church.
I was born and raised in Piney Flats. After a few years living in Virginia, we moved back to Piney Flats where we still reside today. I earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from East Tennessee State University in 2002.
My wife, Jenn, and I were married in 2009. We have two children, Addison and Noah. Addison is a full-of-life and smiles little girl who keeps us hopping all the time. Her brother Noah on the other hand is quite a challenge, medically. Due to a rare genetic condition, he is our special-needs child who is truly a special little guy. He captures the heart of everyone who meets him. With him, I know firsthand how life can deal you cards that you never 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.
Our goal is to provide our clients with easy-to-understand education and investment advice to help meet their long-term financial goals. How may we serve you? Call me, I'd love to get to know you!
