Thank you for visiting our page! You have made a wise decision to research professional help for your financial well-being.

I started in 2008, but you could almost say I've been with Edward Jones my entire life, as my mom was a branch office administrator at an Edward Jones office before I was even born. One of my earliest finance-related memories was my dad teaching me the "Rule of 72." Looking back, I'm very thankful I was introduced to the concept of fiscal responsibility at such a young age.

I attended SIU Carbondale and received my bachelor's degree in finance while simultaneously serving six years in the IL Air National Guard as a medic.

My wife, Jennifer, daughter, Alivia, and our dog, Bella, live outside Sterling and we love spending time outdoors. My daughter especially enjoys country drives in our classic pickup truck.

Here in our community, I am currently president for our Sterling Noon Rotary Club, and I am active in Kiwanis, Sterling Main Street, the American Legion and the CGH Health Foundation Planned Giving Committee as well. I am also a limited partner with Edward Jones and provide training to new financial advisors.

I am honored to introduce my branch business partner, senior branch office administrator, Meghan McCullah. Meghan started in 2009, is also a limited partner with the firm and has held multiple internal leadership roles within our region. Meghan and her boyfriend, Pip, live in the country and love to spend their free time biking and with their pets.
