As your Edward Jones branch team, we believe it’s important to invest our time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money.
In 2008, I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor, opening the firm’s first branch office in Whitehouse. 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 so you have more options when you retire, regardless of what you decide to do.
Relationships give my work meaning. From a young age my father and I discussed personal finances, and he taught me so many things about being a good steward of your resources. I wanted to take what I learned from him and my education and apply it to relationships at Edward Jones.
I attended Grove City College graduating in 2008 with a bachelor’s degree in finance with a concentration in mathematics.
I have been married to my wife, Emily, since 2008. She completed a PhD in psychology from Bowling Green State University. Originally from Pittsburgh, I have lived in Northwest Ohio since 2008, when my wife was accepted into the graduate program at BGSU. We have a daughter, Tessa, and another baby on the way in August 2020.
I am an active member of the community, serving on the board for the Anthony Wayne Regional Chamber of Commerce from 2009-2018 and president for Waterville Rotary 2014-2015. I am a member and one of the Elders of Bowling Green Covenant Church. Lastly, I volunteer as a committee member on the Black Swamp Area Young Life organization.
My Branch Office Administrator, Cindy Torres, began her career with Edward Jones in 2008. Her experience and dedication provides you with the highest level of service possible. Please don't hesitate to call on her with questions concerning your statements, dividends, stock certificates or your account in general. She also supports the community by being involved with Cherry Fest.
