I grew up in southern California and moved to Western Pennsylvania at the age of 17 when my parents purchased a small farm there. I loved the people of Franklin, PA, and was blessed to begin my career with Edward Jones there in 2003.
My husband, Bryce, and I are newly married and we are delighted to have made beautiful Moore County, North Carolina, our permanent home. We have four grown children between us, and we just welcomed our first grandchild!
Over the years, I've served the community in various ways, ranging from civic organizations, such as my local Rotary club, to serving with my church family, teaching Sunday School, etc. I fulfilled my dream of opening my own financial practice in 2007, where I can make sure that any person who comes to me with the desire to better their financial future will not be turned away.
Edward Jones allows me to serve my clients in a personal way, keeping their best interests as my top priority. I work to understand what is most important to the families and business owners I serve, and I use an established process to help them create realistic goals and implement personalized strategies to help them accomplish those goals. By partnering together and remaining accountable to each other, we work to stay on track through all stages of life.
I'm committed to explaining investing in terms that are easy to understand. There are three things you can expect to take away from every conversation:
1. Why I am suggesting a certain investment or strategy
2. What you can expect in volatility and return
3. How much it will cost
I am currently meeting with out of state and local clients via web conference and in person, by appointment, while adhering to health guidelines. Please call us at the branch, and we will schedule a time for us to visit.
