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 earned a bachelor’s degree in management and finance as well as an MBA with a specialization in finance from Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, Illinois. In addition, I received the CFP® professional designation in 2017. The Certified Financial Planner Board of Standards Inc. awards CFP® certification to individuals who meet the board’s requirements for professionalism in financial services. To gain certification, a financial advisor must pass the CFP® Certification Examination and the CFP Board’s Fitness Standards for Candidates and Registrants, agree to abide by the CFP Board’s Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility and comply with the Financial Planning Practice Standards.

I have lived in Southern Illinois my entire life and am involved in several community-minded organizations.

My Branch Office Administrator, Melisa, has been with firm since 2002 and is dedicated to providing highly personalized service.

We embrace the opportunity to serve our community by helping you feel understood, informed, in control and secure about your future. We look forward to partnering together over your lifetime to keep you and your family on track with what's most important!
