My name is Joe Federico and I have been passionate about helping people make sense of their finances for as long as I can remember. I find purpose in helping families work through life events and financial decisions, so they have confidence in their future.

I was born in Providence, Rhode Island, but have lived in Central Florida since 1988. I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a bachelor's degree in finance. After college, I felt a calling to join the United States Air Force Reserves and serve a higher purpose. Throughout my Air Force career, I was able to travel the world, meet absolutely incredible people and help those in need. While on deployment, I was awarded the Air Force Commendation Medal for direct actions in Operation Enduring Freedom.

In 2014, upon returning home from a deployment and still in the Air Force Reserves, I joined Edward Jones and eventually opened the firm's first branch in Dunnellon, FL. The work we do takes a high caliber team to be successful. I am joined by Senior Branch Office Administrator Caryn Pache and Senior Branch Office Administrator Victoria Somers. Collectively, we have over 45 years of industry experience and are dedicated to providing the highest level of service possible. We have developed and refined our process to put all the financial pieces of the puzzle together by understanding what's important to you, building personalized strategies to help you reach your goals and partnering with you throughout your life to keep you on track.

I hold my Accredited Asset Management Specialist™ designation from the College for Financial Planning®. The College for Financial Planning® awards the AAMS™ designation to individuals who successfully complete a 12-module professional education program, pass a final examination, commit to its code of ethics and agree to pursue continuing education.

Outside of the office, I enjoy classic cars, baseball, DIY projects and traveling with my beautiful wife, Whitney, and our three children, Luciana, Grayson and Hudson. I am an active dad and believe in a family-first attitude.

I would like to help provide the answers to your questions so you can make informed, financially sound decisions. Please contact me to discuss your situation and options.
