As a high school senior, I took my first economics class. There was a module on investing and retirement. I thought, how does anyone plan and save for retirement? My parents took me to see their Edward Jones financial advisor and I opened an account. Little did I know, less than six years later, I'd be doing the same thing for others.

I grew up in Cary, Illinois. The suburbs of Chicago are home to my friends and family. I enjoy spending my free time with them, especially my niece and nephew.

In college I received my Bachelor of Business in finance from Western Illinois. I earned a Graduate Assistantship from the Illinois Institute for Rural Affairs and earned a Master of Arts in economics. I accepted a position as financial advisor with Edward Jones and moved to St. Louis to complete the Financial Advisor Career Development Program. I was eager to learn how to best serve my clients and return to Illinois where I could work face to face with them.

My passion is to help clients achieve their financial goals, but I also enjoy giving back to my community. I am a member of the Bloomingdale-Roselle Rotary Club and served as president for two years. I also serve on the board of the advisory committee for the finance and accounting department at Western Illinois University.

I work with individuals and businesses to create tailored financial strategies that put them on track to reach their financial goals. It is important I understand the whole financial picture and risk tolerance in order to provide solutions.

I am grateful to work with investors in Roselle and the surrounding communities. Along with senior branch office administrator, Lisa Freeman, our office is committed to helping clients reach their financial goals.
