I began working with Edward Jones in 1991, in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Over the past 30-plus years of working with individuals and small business owners, I have implemented a wide variety of strategies to increase their financial success.

With the support and resources of Edward Jones, I review and coordinate the variety of investments, insurance, debts and assets accumulated during our client's working career. Using a consistent process of identifying where they are now and where they want to be over the remainder of their lives, we help keep them focused on their goals.

The majority of my time is spent with individuals between the ages of 55 to 73, as a significant number of age and health "triggers" for decision-making fall within that time frame.

We also work with the children and parents of our clients in education funding and estate considerations. I enjoy working with tax and legal professionals to tie those critical aspects into our client's strategies.

Keeping all of this running smoothly is the responsibility of Senior Branch Office Administrator Wendy Ritzdorf. Wendy is committed to provide you with the highest level of service possible by continuously reviewing current and upcoming needs of our clients and their families.

I hold my Life Accident and Health Insurance Agent License, FINRA 7 and 66 registrations, as well as achieving my ChFC®, AAMS™ and RICP® designations. I believe in maintaining those licenses and designations by continuing my financial education through a consistent coursework of rigor and current topics.

Outside of the office, JoAnne and I are active in outdoor pursuits and involved in our community.

I am an active member of the Grand Junction Lion's Club, the Western Colorado Estate Planning Council and Guys Giving Club, and support Crime Stoppers of Mesa County, the Marillac Clinic and Food Bank of the Rockies.

My wife and I enjoy gardening, landscaping, fishing, hunting and camping. We love to travel, both domestically and internationally, and share those experiences with Will, our adult son.
