My passion for a career as a financial advisor started at a young age as I watched people close to me miss the opportunity to get sound financial advice and ultimately see the negative impact. They didn't know what they didn't know. I realized my desire to help not only those in my immediate circle but so many others that have dreams they want to accomplish, but just need a partner to help them. I made it my goal to continually develop myself so that I am equipped to serve my clients at the highest level. I am a graduate of the University of Akron with a business degree, and a holder of the CFP® and AAMS® designations. When I found Edward Jones 20 years ago, I knew I was in the right place as they had the same desire and passion as I did - to make a difference for so many.
As a financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest time in understanding where you are and what you're working toward before any advice is given. We want to build customized strategies to help you accomplish what's most important to you, and help you navigate all the complexities of the wealth management landscape.
I'm inspired everyday by the people I am so lucky to work with. My branch team of Cindy Schuette and Rachel Hancock strive each day to serve you on your terms to deliver the most ideal client experience possible.
My wife and I reside in the City of Green with our two daughters. We enjoy exercising, traveling and spending time together at our swimming pool.
Each day, I try to instill in my children certain values that I also try to bestow on my clients. Those values are to treat everyone with kindness, be attentive to the needs of others and show people that you care about them.
We know your time is valuable and my team works very hard to make things as simple as possible for you. We invite you to experience the Edward Jones difference: convenience, personalized planning and one-on-one relationships.
