I have been a member of the Edward Jones family for 25 years, the first three as a client.
Prior to Edward Jones, I was in advertising sales for our city magazine. It was enjoyable, but I did not feel I was making a true impact in people's lives. My financial advisor helped me to realize that a career with Edward Jones would give me the opportunity to do what I loved, which is making a difference in the lives of others.
My ideal clients are those that want to carefully and thoughtfully work towards financial goals that range from: preparing for and living in retirement, sending children to college, estate considerations and protecting wealth with life insurance and long-term care plans.
My wife, Kim, and I have two children. Cade, our son, is a freshman at Georgia Southern University and is an avid go-kart racer. Regan, our daughter, is a high school sophomore and a competitive cheerleader. Most weekends, you will find us at a race track or cheer competition. In our free time, we enjoy exercise, cooking and decompressing from all the activities that require our attention.
I attended Wake Forest University on an Army ROTC scholarship where I graduated with a degree in business. I served eight years in the National Guard and Individual Ready Reserve. I serve on the finance committee at church and am a member of the Martinez/Evans Rotary Club.
I welcome the opportunity to learn about you and your financial priorities. It all starts with a conversation.
