I became a client in 1999 and experienced firsthand the quality-oriented, long-term investment philosophy of Edward Jones. My financial advisor, also my father, had an amazing impact on me and I realized I wanted to help people and change lives in the same manner he had done for me. In January 2012, I became an Edward Jones financial advisor, and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I put my clients' interest first. I want to know what is important to you before you invest your money. After identifying your goals, I use a defined process to build customized strategies to help achieve them. Finally, I partner with you throughout your lifetime to help you stay on track and adjust when necessary.

I grew up in central Louisiana and then graduated from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in 2008 with my bachelor's in business administration. My wife, Emily, and I have three children – Vince, Vileigh and Valerie – and a lovable Doberman named Zeus. I am active in the community and volunteer my time frequently. I spend my free time either doing physical fitness, swimming with family, golfing, bowling or traveling.

Lavena Sherrod, my branch office administrator, joined Edward Jones in 2002. She grew up in Leesville and has been living in Alexandria since 2015. Her daughter, Carrie, is also a branch office administrator in Colorado Springs and her grandson is a body builder. When she's not working, she enjoys family, home time and reading.

Please contact us to discuss your situation. Lavena and I pride ourselves on providing highly personalized service to help us better understand and meet our clients' unique goals and needs. We look forward to speaking with you!
