As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to invest my time to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money. By working closely with you and your other financial professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family and one that provides you with many options and opportunities along the way to retirement. I look forward to the opportunity to partner and work with you to help you reach your goals.
In addition to my work at Edward Jones, I have been involved in business and civic affairs in Anderson County for many years. As an active member of the Anderson County Chamber of Commerce, I serve on the Education/Workforce Development Committee and the Business Development Committee. I am also on the boards for the Young Professionals of Anderson County, Leadership Anderson County and East TN Regional Leadership Association. I also serve on the board for the Methodist Medical Center Foundation.
As an Eagle Scout, I volunteer for the Friends of Scouting annual fundraiser to support local BSA troops.
I grew up in Clinton and attended Oak Ridge High School followed by the University of Tennessee-Knoxville. I teach classes for the ORICL program (Oak Ridge Institute of Continued Learning) at the Roane State Community College campus in Oak Ridge. I also speak at Oak Ridge, Clinton and Anderson County High Schools.
