Growing up in Johnsburg, I learned what it meant to "earn a living." Whether it was stacking hay, throwing salt or delivering pizzas, I grew up understanding that if I worked hard, then I could have the life I always dreamed of. I know that we are a community of hard workers, and I feel truly honored and privileged to help protect the futures that we are all working so hard to secure.
Working as an Edward Jones financial advisor in the community I grew up in and live in has been extremely rewarding for me. I'm a member of the Johnsburg VFW, the JCMC, the McHenry Rotary Club, JABA and the Johnsburg Library board of trustees. My family and I live in Ringwood. Alexis, my wife, sells chocolate from home for a local chocolatier. On top of that, she runs our entire household and takes amazing care of our three children: Cade (oldest), Cam (middle) and Piper (youngest). Being so heavily involved in the community means that I'm not just accountable to you in our office. I'm accountable to you at sporting events, at the grocery store and any number of other boisterous events that help support or build our great community. I value the relationships that I build with my clients and I look forward to meeting new clients who value that level of trust and accountability.
I believe that, if I truly understand who you are and what your goals are, I can then create a personalized strategy for you, partner with you to reach your financial goals and set realistic expectations for you and your investments.
We pride ourselves on providing highly personalized service to help us better understand and meet our clients' unique goals and needs. Savannah Gonzaque, our branch office administrator, partners with me to ensure your needs are met. You will be welcomed with her contagious smile - and her notorious flower in her hair - and leave feeling like you're part of the family. We look forward to speaking with you!!
