After receiving my bachelor's degree from North Georgia College and serving 13 years in the Armed Forces, I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 2002. I moved my beautiful family to North Georgia and opened the first Edward Jones office in Blairsville in 2007.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest my time to understand what you're working toward before you invest your money. I will work closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, so that I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I am highly skilled at creating retirement strategies to help you prepare for and live successfully in your retirement years. While preparing for retirement is a big part of my business, I also can help newer investors with education and advice to help grow and protect assets.

My branch office administrator, Melody Strickland, has 25 years of experience in the finance industry and is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. Melody can help you streamline your banking needs to compliment your Edward Jones experience. Please don't hesitate to call on her with questions concerning your statement, dividends, stock certificates or your account in general.

We strive to provide highly personalized service. All aspects of our business are aligned to help us better understand and meet our clients' unique goals and needs.
