After thirteen years at another financial firm, I joined Edward Jones for two reasons: it allowed me to focus my attention on my own community of Mineral Wells, and it gave me the opportunity to put my clients first. It didn’t take long for me to realize that by focusing my efforts closer to home, I was able to help my neighbors and community members invest in the things they care about, which in turn make our community greater. Whether that’s funding a child or grandchild’s education, opening or running a small business, comfortably entering retirement or something else, I’m honored to partner with so many members of our community who are working towards what matters to them.

When it comes to what my office can offer our clients, our approach to investing is both strategic and compassionate. Over years of working together, my clients and I become very close, so I take my responsibility to give them peace of mind and keep them working towards their goals very seriously. That’s why I develop and update personalized strategies that play to my individual clients’ strengths and help them avoid common mistakes like trying to time the market.

Regardless of whether they’re local or remote, our office works hard to make sure that each of our individual investors feels supported by and connected to our team. We couldn’t do it without our branch office administrator, Vickie Ballow, who offers our clients nearly a decade of experience on top of her amazing organizational and customer service skills.

Prior to joining the firm, I received a Bachelor of Arts in speech communication cum laude from North Texas State University in 1976 and a Master of Divinity from Texas Christian University in 1979. I have six securities registrations and am licensed to sell life insurance.

Outside of the office, I am active with the Rotary Club and serve at First Christian Church as a teacher and board member. I also enjoy spending time on the ranch my wife and I own west of Mineral Wells.
