As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I want to understand what is most important to you. I use an established process to collaborate with you to identify and prioritize your goals, customize the solutions and help protect those goals from the unexpected aspects of life. I am passionate about helping you grow and protect your wealth for current and future generations, as we partner with you over your life.
Prior to joining Edward Jones in 2010, I worked for Nicholas|Applegate Capital Management, working with institutional investors. I was also area finance controller for Capgemini Consulting North America, where we provided business and management consulting to large organizations and business around the globe.
I earned a BS in business management from the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business in 1999. I received the Accredited Asset Management Specialist™ (AAMS®) designation* from the College for Financial Planning in 2013. I became a limited partner with Edward Jones in 2018.
My branch team includes Isel Norris, senior branch office administrator, who began her career with Edward Jones in 2013. She has a BS from Penn State University and an MBA from WGU. She is responsible for helping ensure that you receive timely support and personalized attention to all operational account matters.
I believe in being a good steward in the Houston community, taking active roles with various charities and local organizations to help end hunger, improve financial literacy, and fight to end Alzheimer's and MS.
* The College for Financial Planning awards the AAMS® designation to individuals who successfully complete a 12-module professional education program, pass a final examination, commit to its code of ethics and agree to pursue continuing education.
