I became interested in finance and investing because I wanted to help people avoid the anxiety and depression caused by financial stress. I believe that, in order to have a comfortable life, one must have a clear financial strategy.

Firsthand knowledge of this stress and anxiety was provided by growing up on a farm where finances were constantly tight.

I am a seasoned Certified Financial Planner™ (CFP®)*. I have been with Edward Jones since October 1999. Prior to Edward Jones, I was a CPA, having started my accounting career in Atlanta after graduating from The Georgia Institute of Technology (Management) in 1988 focused on individual, partnership and corporate taxation and business management. I have seen a lot of wealth destroyed by poor, uninformed financial decisions. I have seen wealth created by well-planned financial decisions. I partner with my clients through various life stages to help them benefit from this unique knowledge.

Edward Jones gives me the tools and environment to help make the best choices with my clients so we can do what is in the client's best interest.

As a Certified Financial Planner™, I must stay current on all relevant matters through ongoing continuing education.

Give us a call to see if we would make good partners on your financial journey.
