For nearly 30 years, I have been working with families and business owners, understanding what is most important to them and helping to build personalized investment strategies. Working closely with you and your other trusted professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy to help achieve your financial goals, such as building a personal retirement plan, saving for education, insurance strategies or business retirement planning.
I grew up in Huron, SD, spending a lot of time on family farms, learning the value of faith, family and hard work. I graduated from Crown College with a bachelor's degree in history.
My wife, Janice, and I live in Rochester and have two grown children. We both believe it is important to give back to the community and are involved in a number of local charities, giving our time and resources.
As my business has grown, I have partnered with several financial advisors to assist me in providing clients with exceptional and personalized service. I have been a coach to a number of financial advisors. A few years ago, I was blessed to be awarded with the Ted Jones Spirit of Caring Award. The Ted Jones Spirit of Caring Award is designed to recognize financial advisors who exemplify the values, culture and spirit of giving back. It is unique in the fact that the winners are selected by his/her peers in the region.
Recently, I was awarded the inaugural Community Impact Award for my work helping Edward Jones increase our impact in each community we serve. I coordinate Edward Jones' impact with the The Walk to End Alzheimer's for the state of Minnesota. There are nearly 500 Jones offices and 14 Walks to End Alzheimer's in Minnesota.
My branch team, Dawn O'Connell and Joy Kaul, have 35 years of combined experience. Working together, we believe it’s important to invest our time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money.
I get a great amount of personal satisfaction and significance from helping people get the "Return on Life" they desire. It's not just about the return on investments; it is living the kind of life that makes a difference with the people and causes that they care about.
