I am a lifetime South Dakotan, having grown up in a small community working in a family owned business and worked my way through college while participating in collegiate football and wrestling. Upon college graduation, I went to work for John Morrell as a salesman, returned to the family business of farming, moved on to utilize my degree at a bank as a loan officer and then spent 20-plus years as an owner agent of a successful insurance agency before moving on to a career as an advisor with Edward Jones.
At each step along the way, I have been involved in the Chamber of Commerce and economic development boards and have actively supported athletic programs, the local church and volunteer work. Our family enjoys the outdoors through skiing, snowboarding, camping and hiking, while finding unique restaurants and family-owned diners and pubs.
Observing individuals striving to gather assets and desiring to help people reach their financial dreams is what precipitated my move to the financial advisor position. The joy of working with individuals while talking through and walking through their life experiences and watching their plans come to fruition brings great satisfaction.
The process is one that gains understanding of what is important to each individual client and develops a strategy and understanding while providing guidance and direction to assist them in reaching what is important to them.
With seven-plus years of experience working with Edward Jones and over 25 years helping accomplish what's important to my clients, I look forward to many more years helping individuals discover and achieve what is important to them.
