As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my time to understand what you're working toward before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family. I can also help with your retirement savings strategy, so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.

I began my Edward Jones Career in 2003 as a financial advisor. I have volunteered my time to the firm as a field trainer, recruiting leader and diversity inclusion specialist.

I grew up in Joplin, graduating from Joplin High School and Missouri Southern State University. My wife, Lisa, and I have four sons and a daughter.

An active member of the community, I have served as president of Joplin Kiwanis and currently co-chair the Joplin Arts Fest. I serve in the United States Army Reserve as a Lieutenant Colonel. I am a veteran of both the Enduring Freedom and Iraqi Freedom campaigns.

My branch office administrator, Vicki Welde, has been with the firm since 2008 and is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. Please don't hesitate to call her with questions concerning your statement, dividends, stock certificates or your account in general.

Relationships are key, and in our view, meeting face to face builds strong relationships. We meet when it’s convenient for our clients because we recognize the challenging needs of their business and their lives.

I am looking forward to working with you.
