As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my 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 determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I can also help with your retirement savings strategy, so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.

The key to successful investing is to develop a strategy now that can help you reach your future goals. At Edward Jones, we work extensively in meeting the needs of individual investors by helping them map out long−term investment strategies.

I began my career at Edward Jones in 2000 after teaching for 20 years. I am committed to professional development, and have since earned the AAMS® professional designation. The College for Financial Planning awards the AAMS® designation to individuals who successfully complete a 12-module professional education program, pass a final examination, commit to its code of ethics and agree to pursue continuing education.

I enjoy being involved in the community, and I currently participate in a fundraiser I created three years ago that benefits the local foodbank, Christian Assistance Ministry. I am married to my spouse, Joe Mechler, and we have two daughters and nine grandchildren.

I love helping people and working at Edward Jones provides me with the opportunity to help others every day. My top priority is to do the very best for my clients – please contact our office so we can begin discussing your own financial future.
