My name is Michelle Bowman. I'm a Rockford native with a passion for the community. I joined Edward Jones in an administrative capacity in 2006, received a limited partnership in 2011 and became a financial advisor in 2013. I opened my branch in the historic Edgewater Neighborhood in Rockford in 2015.

My husband, Brad, and I have been married for 21 years, and have three amazing children that we home school. My hobbies include yoga, hiking and time with family.

Prior to joining Edward Jones, I was a home health agency administrator and earned the designation of Senior Services Specialist through the Northern Illinois Area Agency on Aging. I graduated from Rockford College with honors in 2004 with a degree in business administration with a dual emphasis on management and marketing.

My community volunteerism includes The Northern Illinois Care Coalition, PEO Chapter ET, The Rockford Chamber of Commerce, Edgewater Neighborhood Association and the Pregnancy Care Center of Rockford. In addition, I like to offer financial education to various churches and nonprofit organizations.
