I have worked in the financial services industry for almost three years. I graduated from Iowa State University in May of 2017 with a degree in public relations and began working at Principal Financial Group. While there, I specialized in work with 401ks; working with participants through a variety of questions and concerns they may have had with their plan. I learned the importance of saving and preparing for retirement and saw firsthand how a well-prepared strategy being put in place early was extremely important. I came to work for Edward Jones because I knew that with my knowledge I could help people put those strategies into place and help execute them, an important next step in my drive to help people live comfortably in retirement.
I live in Beaverdale with my wife, Anna, and our rambunctious (and often crazy) dog, Ollie. We both grew up in the Des Moines Metro, and knew after college this is where we wanted to settle down. In our free time, we enjoy taking Ollie on walks around the many parks and pathways Des Moines has to offer, as well as spending time with our families and friends and volunteering at Anna's place of work, Easterseals Iowa.
I am inspired to do this work because I have seen what can happen when people do not put a plan in place for their retirement. I want to be a resource to people who simply do not know where to go next.
Whether you are just beginning your career and need some guidance on investing, or you are nearing retirement and are ready to begin a withdrawal strategy that makes sense, I am happy to sit down and personalize a strategy designed to work for you. It all starts with a conversation - let's visit.
