My career as a financial professional has spanned more than 25 years and I have had the privilege of working with clients as an Edward Jones financial advisor since 2017. I chose Edward Jones because every conversation with an Edward Jones professional during the interview process started with, "At Edward Jones, we always put the client's interests first." That really resonated with me and set them apart from the other firms.

Jennifer Kowantz joined the branch team in 2019. Jenn has a passion for helping others and together, we focus on delivering best in class service to our clients. We work together to help individuals, families and small business owners build, protect and transfer wealth.

Because every client has different goals, needs and resources, there is no one-size-fits-all solution for investing. My approach is to get to know you personally to understand what’s most important to you. That enables me to develop customized strategies to help you achieve your goals. We then partner with you throughout your lifetime to help make sure you stay on track to meeting those goals.

I have a bachelor's degree in accounting from Michigan State University and I hold an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business with concentrations in finance and economics.

I moved from the Midwest to New York City where I met my wife, Mary Rose. We chose to make our home in Berkeley Heights where we are raising our three children – Declan, Noreen and Molly. We love being part of the community through school, sports, volunteering and supporting local restaurants, shops and businesses. To recharge, I like to travel, get outside with the family or take on a DIY project around the house.
