Growing up, I was determined to do something important for a career. In my mind, this was defined as wearing a business suit, working in a high rise in the city and being in a corporate setting. After graduating St. Louis University in 1999, I worked as a CPA for four years as an auditor, but there was just something missing. After a few years, I moved on to build an Allstate Insurance office of my own. I loved helping people but craved more, so I sold the business and took my best leap of faith ever, leading me to Edward Jones. I opened my office at the end of 2005 and have truly loved every single day of work since then. This is when my ability to do something big really started.

As a financial advisor, I get to stand beside clients every day, help them make a plan (and stick to it), send kids to college, afford the next home, retire with confidence and one day to pass their wealth to the next generation. I love the relationships I have with my clients, from the in-depth appointments about their investments, to the random stop by for a hug and a cup of coffee. My vision of success had changed. Where I once felt that "making it" meant a business suit and a high rise, I know now it's found in the parent that can let their child choose the college of their choice and not worry about the cost. It's the hard-working single parent that can retire with comfort, the widow that I sit with and tell her that she WILL be ok financially. It looks a lot different than I once thought, and it's the sweetest reward.

I am so privileged to have Randi Cooper and Marsha Schmitt work side by side with me. They are as passionate about serving our relationships as I am, and they show it every day. With our team, we will partner with you every step of the way in your financial path, and we are honored to do so.
