With over 28 years' experience as an Edward Jones financial advisor, I have the skill set and knowledge to create the custom guidance my clients are looking for as they work toward their financial goals. I am dedicated to fully understanding my clients' needs, which helps to keep their strategy on track through life's challenges.

Throughout my career, I've had the great pleasure of educating clients and individuals about finance and making sense of investing. I taught adult education classes for over 25 years on basic investing and preparing for retirement, as well as general high school investing classes and college classes on a variety of subjects from personal finance to investing.

In addition to individual investors and families, I partner with self-employed business owners, farmers and entrepreneurs. I enjoy helping business owners with the complex financial needs and challenges they encounter with owning their own business. I'm an active member of the Norwalk and South Des Moines Chambers of Commerce, and I love to meet all of the business owners in our community.

My teammate in serving clients is branch office administrator, Julie Manatrey. Julie is a great listener and problem solver, and I can count on her to always help our clients.

Outside of the office, I enjoy spending my time with my wife of 38 years, Ginger, and our four children and six grandchildren. With a large family comes a lot of activities – biking, dances, concerts, soccer, softball and basketball games. We are members of Valley Church.

I was raised on a farm in central Iowa, so I enjoy being outdoors and learned the value of hard work from my parents and grandparents. I like to stay busy with DIY projects around our house and acreage.

My professional experience has shown me that partnering with a financial advisor makes navigating the market's twists and turns all that much easier. I'd like to help guide you as well.

Please contact our office – Julie and I look forward to meeting you.
