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. Through working for Edward Jones, there is an opportunity to implement financial strategies that can provide a lasting impact to clients. There is a culture of support and family that is emphasized on a company level that I value and will provide to my clients as well.
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. We will work together with prospective clients to develop in depth relationships that focus on their interests and goals for the future. In turn, we will be able to cater a customized approach to helping them achieve their financial goals.
I was born in the Chicago suburbs but raised in South Florida. After attending college in Indiana, I made my return to the Chicago area. With my parents and three of my four brothers currently living in the Chicago area and having lived here for over 13 years, it is safe to say that Chicago is home.
I received my bachelor's degree in kinesiology from Indiana University - Bloomington. I hold my Life Accident and Health Insurance Agent Licenses, as well as FINRA Series 7 and Series 66 registrations.
Outside of the office, you can find me riding my bike on the lake front, hiking, camping and exploring state and national parks. Lastly, it can't be said enough, Go Hoosiers!
