As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it is important to invest my time understanding your goals before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I can also help with your retirement savings strategy so you have more options when you retire.
I have earned a master's degree (MBA) in finance from Tulane University in New Orleans, LA. I also have a bachelor's degree in economics, cum laude, from Tulane University. I graduated from Circleville High School with honors.
I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 2006. Previously, I was a financial management consultant with Ernst & Young LLP and Cap Gemini Ernst & Young LLC from 1992-2005.
I have earned the following awards in the past 16 years at Edward Jones: Regional Leader Award; Winners Circle Award; Partners Award; Edward Jones Sr. Founders Award; and Field Trainer Award. I have served in multiple training roles for other financial advisors at Edward Jones.
I have been married 27 years to a high school teacher who works for the Bloom-Carroll Local School District. We are both from Circleville, and I am the fourth generation of my family to live in Pickaway County. My community involvement includes the Circleville Noon Rotary Club, the Pickaway County Chamber of Commerce, Partners for Paws and 4-H.
