Growing up, I lived a normal, middle-class life. We always had food on the table, played whatever sports we wanted to, traveled once a year and received presents for our birthdays. Sounds great, right? Wrong! On the surface things looked good, but as I got older, I started asking more questions around money and debt. How on earth did they pay for everything? Well, unfortunately my parents, like millions of Americans had too much debt, didn’t have a plan for how to get out and didn’t have someone to guide them.
My journey may have started with my family, but my passion for helping my parents get on track is why I am here today and why I want to make an impact in your life. Through a personalized approach, I want to work with you and help you reach your retirement goals. As your Edward Jones Financial Advisor with more than five years of financial services experience, I understand every client is unique and requires a personalized strategy. It is most important to invest my time to understand your goals and retirement dreams so we can truly make sure my strategy is personalized to you. It's also important to understand the level of risk you're comfortable accepting when investing so we can balance it with the steps necessary to reach your long-term goals.
My office is in St. Peters, MO where my wife, Kelly, and I reside and actively serve. I enjoy spending my free time with my family, traveling, playing golf and being active in our community. I coach both youth and high school lacrosse and am fortunate to serve on the board of directors for Missouri Kids Org. Kelly and I are both involved with several animal rescue organizations and am currently in the process of becoming enshrined to be a Shriner, as I too was once a Shriners patient as a child.
I look forward to working together!
