As your Edward Jones branch team, we believe it's important to invest our time in understanding what you're working toward before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help with your retirement savings so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.

I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 2000, opening the firm's fourth branch office in Reno. I have served the firm as a field trainer leader, level 3 leader, mentor, field trainer, member of the hiring team and as a culture of compliance leader.

I attended Northern Arizona University and Arizona State University. I also completed the College for Financial Planning's CFP® professional education program in 1996. I received the AAMS® professional designation in 2007.

My wife, Tracy, and I were married in February 2018. Between us, we have eight children and seven grandchildren. I lived in Reno the first time in the mid-1960s, when my father was stationed at Stead AFB, then moved here to stay in 2000.

I am a member of the Boy Scout Troup 107 Executive Committee, member of Reno Rotary and am a current member and past president of the Sierra Sunrise Toastmasters.

My Senior Branch Office Administrator, Beverly Gill, has 18 years of experience and is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. As our office continues to grow, we added this year an additional Branch Office Administrator, Sharon Brannon. She has had considerable industry experience prior to coming to Edward Jones. Please don't hesitate to call on either Sharon or Bev with questions concerning your statement, dividends, stock certificates or your account in general.

We provide highly personalized service. All aspects of our business are aligned to help us better understand and meet our clients' unique goals and needs.
