At Edward Jones, we focus on serving the financial needs of individual investors of all ages and financial means. We have built our business by treating our clients as we would want to be treated, a simple idea that still makes sense in today's complex marketplace. Whether your goals include preparing for or living in retirement, paying for education, planning for the unexpected or creating an estate or inheritance, we can offer investment solutions tailored to all your financial goals.
I joined Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 2000, opening the second branch office in Vandalia. I earned a bachelor's degree in 1998 from Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville. I also have my AAMS® professional designation.
I grew up in Vandalia and have lived here since 1983. My husband, Charles, and I have two children, two dogs and two cats, so we have a full house. Some of my hobbies are running, traveling and spending time with my family.
My branch office administrator, Krystal Hohlt, has 18 years of experience and is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. Please don't hesitate to call on her with questions concerning your statement, dividends, stock certificates or your account in general.
We provide the investments, services and tools our clients need to work toward their financial future. I would like to help to provide the answers to your questions so you can make informed, financially sound decisions. Please contact me to discuss your situation and options.
