My career as a financial advisor began in 1993. I wanted a career where I could help people accomplish their financial dreams and build my own practice. I have been able to realize these goals as an Edward Jones financial advisor since 2009.
Over the years, my most memorable moments have come from when I hear a client thank me and say they wouldn't be where they are now without my help. It's very fulfilling to be invited to the graduations, weddings and retirement parties of my clients.
Our branch team greatly values the significance of helping our clients build, protect and distribute their financial resources in a way that matters most to them. It's also a pleasure to help multi-generational households build wealth and pass it on to their loved ones, creating their legacy. Each member of our branch team has very clear roles which enable us to serve our clients at the highest level. Our clients can expect to be served in a manner to which we ourselves would like to be served and always with utmost trust and integrity - this is our branch culture.
My commitment to serve begins with a strong foundation of knowledge and education. I earned my Bachelors of Business from Michigan State University. More recently, in 2019 I earned the CFP professional designation from the Certified Financial Planning Board of Standards.
We are strong supporters of community involvement. I have been the president of the board for the Kent Chamber of Commerce. I currently serve as a board member of the Green River College Foundation and a board member of my Rotary club where I have served this community for over 18 years.
I live in the area with my wife, Naomi, and our two boys, Roman and Anghus. My passions are my family, slalom waterskiing, golf, snowboarding, mountain biking and realizing my calling as an Edward Jones financial advisor.
