Prior to becoming an Edward Jones financial advisor, I served on active duty in the United States Air Force as an Instructor Pilot in both the T-6 and KC-135. A 2005 graduate of the United States Air Force Academy, I hold a Bachelor of Science in foreign area studies and in 2013, I graduated magna cum laude from Trident University International with a master's in business administration.
I married my beautiful wife, Amy, a Louisville native, in 2005 and we have been blessed with three wonderful children. After multiple relocations while in the service, we are thrilled to finally put down roots near both of our families and raise our kids here in Louisville.
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. The financial world can sometimes seem like foreign territory, but I can work one-on-one with you to help determine the most appropriate financial strategies for you and your family. I may not fly airplanes anymore, but I would love to help pilot you on your journey to reach your financial goals.
Misty joined the team in June of 2020 as the branch office administrator. She and her husband, Michael, moved to Louisville from Sarasota, Florida to be more centrally located to family. Their son, Joshua, is in the Army and is stationed at Fort Campbell.
As a branch team, our goal is to serve our community one household at a time. We work each day to earn your business and referrals by treating you the way we would want to be treated. Your victories are our victories and helping you achieve your financial goals is the reason we do what we do. We listen to what is most important to you and help you visualize your future; design a personalized roadmap, using an established process; and partner with you long-term to help keep you on track toward reaching your financial achievements.
Give us a call and we can set up a convenient time to chat.
