As your Edward Jones branch team, we believe it's important to invest our time in understanding what you're working toward before you invest your money. Working closely with you and your CPA, attorney and other professionals, I can help determine the most appropriate financial strategy for you and your family.
Originally from Chester, IL, I've lived in Mahomet since marrying my wife, Alicia, in 1997. Prior to coming to Edward Jones in 2002, I was proud to serve as the commander, F/202 ADA, 1st CAV during Operation Iraqi Freedom from 2003-2005 with an overall career in the U.S. Army and IL National Guard from 1985-2006.
I've served the firm as a growth leader, a member of the region's leadership team, a legacy host for several new financial advisors and field trainer.
I've been involved in several area organizations: Mahomet Area Chamber of Commerce, president 2014; Savoy Rotary Club, president 2013-2015; Champaign Chamber of Commerce; and the American Legion Post 1015 of Mahomet, IL.
I'm AAMS® certified since 2007, CFP® certified since 2018 and have earned several awards, including: Savoy Rotarian of the Year 2010; Edward Jones AF McKenzie Achievement Award in 2019 and 2020; Edward Jones Century Award 2010; Edward Jones Jack Phelan Award 2018; and Edward Jones Frank Finnegan Achievement Award, among many others. I became a limited partner in 2011.
I have two branch office administrators as part of our branch team. Senior branch office administrator Amy Jones has helped serve our clients since 2008 and has been a limited partner since 2015. Amy received the Ted Jones Spirit of Caring Award in 2013 and 2015. Branch office administrator Polly Hoewing has been a part of our team since 2021. Both Amy and Polly are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service.
