As your Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to understand what is important to you, and to use an established process to help you reach your financial goals. Relationships are key, and in our view, meeting face to face builds strong relationships. We utilize technology and many planning tools as we partner with you throughout your lifetime to achieve your financial goals.

I live my life with a purpose: Laugh often and live life serving others. I want to see humor when I can and I want to work tirelessly serving my family, friends, community and clients.

In 2000, I began my career as a financial advisor with Edward Jones. I became a limited partner with Edward Jones in 2007 and a general partner in 2021. Today, Edward Jones serves Mineola and the surrounding community from three convenient locations.

My branch team consists of branch office administrators Marilyn Ballem, Carla Dobbs and Donna Pratley. They have over 30 years of combined experience and are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service.

I earned a bachelor's degree in business administration with an emphasis in banking and finance from the University of Southern Mississippi. In addition, I have earned the ChFC®, CLU® and AAMS® professional designations.

My spouse, Amy, and I were married on July 31, 1993 in Grapeland, Texas. We lived in the Houston area for four years and relocated to Jacksonville, Texas due to a promotion. In 1997, we were blessed with twin boys, Austin and Riley. In July of 2000, I began my career with Edward Jones and moved to Mineola in August of the same year. In 2002, we completed our family with our third son, Jackson. We live on acreage northwest of Mineola and enjoy working outside and sitting on the porch in the evenings.
