An Edward Jones financial advisor since 1995, I enjoy helping serious investors achieve their long-term financial goals.
I serve individuals and their families in planning for retirement and other goals, such as education savings, asset protection and estate considerations. Additionally, I assist business owners and nonprofit boards.
A frequent speaker to professional and community groups, my emphasis is big-picture planning, goal setting and quality investments.
A native of Jefferson City, TN, I hold a B.A., magna cum laude, in directed studies from Carson-Newman College and an M.A. from Boston University, School of Public Communication.
I serve on the boards of Ft. Sanders/Covenant Health Care, Helen Ross McNabb and Knox County Library Foundations and the board of Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum. I am a mayoral appointee to the City of Knoxville Pension Board and member of investment and personnel committees. Among others, I volunteer for Knox Heritage, Covenant Health's Artsclamation, Legal Aid of East Tennessee and Tennessee Clean Water Network. I'm a member of PEO and of Knoxville Symphony Orchestra's Circle of Friends. I participated in the 2014 Covenant Health Leadership Academy.
A former president of North Knoxville Rotary, I was active in projects for Cerebral Palsy Group Home, Adopt-A-Road and Flu Shot Saturday. Prior community involvement includes boards of Fountain City Business & Professionals, Race Relations Center of East Tennessee and Knoxville YWCA, where I co-chaired The Big Read project.
