Throughout my life, helping others has been an integral part of who I am. I chose a career in financial services because I believe I can make a difference in the lives of families in my community.
At Edward Jones, we strive to make sure clients feel heard, and that we understand their unique story. We also work to help clients understand the investment world in terms they can relate to.
For the last 20-plus years, I have served our community, a portion through our local YMCA and the remaining through the very company I continue with, Edward Jones. My commitment to clients' needs and goals are what keeps me coming back day after day. I am the happily married wife of my husband, Shane, mother of daughter, Sydney, and grandmother of two beautiful grandsons, Jordan and Camden. A lover of the arts, I enjoy traveling and hitting every gallery in my path.
I work closely with my clients to help them reach their long-term goals. And find it greatly rewarding to see their goals come to life. Whether you are planning for retirement, saving for college for your children or grandchildren, or just trying to protect the financial future of the ones you care for the most, we can work together to develop specific strategies to help you achieve your goals.
