As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest my time in understanding what's important to you before you invest your money. We use an established process to build personalized strategies to help you achieve your goals, and we will partner throughout your life to keep you on track.

Our office strives for our clients to realize the potential of their investable assets through sound financial allocation. This philosophy is based on the proactive process of asset diversification while considering one's risk tolerance.

I am a Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®)* and earned the professional designations of AAMS® and CRPC® from the College of Financial Planning. I also hold my Series 7 and Series 66 securities registrations in addition to life and health insurance license.

My wife, Monica, and I have one child, Jackson. We love spending time together attending Jackson's various sporting activities, traveling and cheering on The University of Illinois basketball and football teams.

Tara Busboom is our branch office administrator and came to Edward Jones in 2017 with a background in banking. Tara and her husband, Dustin, have two children, Evan and Kolbie. They enjoy attending their kids' sporting events, cooking and rooting for the Chicago Cubs.

Let our team focus on the proven steps necessary to help your family reach all of your financial goals.
