My name is John Wilson and I am a financial advisor with Edward Jones. Our office is located at 204 W Main St. in Covington and I have the pleasure of serving the entire Alleghany Highlands as well as the cities and towns surrounding it. I believe it is important to know the type of person you are doing business with and that is why I am sharing my background with you.

I was born and raised in the eastern part of Kentucky in a small town called Manchester. I am a graduate of Union College where I played baseball and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration. I now live here in the community with my wife, Krista, our daughter, Sawyer, and our son, Macklin. My wife is a native of Alleghany County and she is currently a nurse at the local hospital in Low Moor. I am also a former Covington Lumberjack, where I played during the 2012, 2013 and 2014 summers. I am also a member of the local Alleghany Highlands Kiwanis Club. In my spare time, if my wife allows it of course, I enjoy hunting and fishing.

I am excited to have my business here in our community and be able to serve the people of the Alleghany Highlands and surrounding areas. I strive to provide the best client experience and serve the people of this community the best way I know how, and that is by first understanding what is most important to you and your family.

One-size-fits-all may be fine for some investors, but we believe investments should be tailored to your needs and not generically based on guidelines for someone your age or at your stage of life. Whether your goals include preparing for or living in retirement, paying for education, planning for the unexpected or creating an estate or inheritance, we offer investment solutions tailored to all your financial goals.

I am looking forward to meeting you soon. If I haven't met you face to face by the time a need arises, please reach out to me and let me know if I can be of help to you and your family.
