I work with individuals and families in my community to navigate the increasingly complex and volatile investment environment by using established investment strategies designed to help them live their financial lives on their own terms. Throughout my career, I have helped a broad range of clients plan for their investment goals, including retirees, business owners, multigenerational families and those with special-needs considerations.

Prior to joining Edward Jones as a financial advisor in 2017, I began my career in the financial industry as an account executive with Acorn Management Partners, an investment relations company, where I worked my way up to the role of senior vice president of the ETF division. In order to further my financial knowledge, I have earned the CFP® and CRPC® professional designations.

I was born in Novosibirsk, Russia, and spent my early childhood in the outskirts of Siberia. At the age of 10, I moved to the United States with my mother, and we soon found ourselves living in the North Georgia Mountains. Through my experience as an immigrant, I learned the importance of cultivating strong relationships in new situations and being detail-oriented with my communication. I later attended the University of North Georgia, where I graduated as a four-time dean’s list recipient with a B.A. in international affairs.

Today, I am a proud resident of Blairsville, where I support our local businesses as a member of the Chamber of Commerce and the Mountain Networking Referral Group. In addition, I am part of the Blairsville Kiwanis Club, a Sigma Chi Fraternity alumni and an Eagle Scout. I am married to my college sweetheart, Claire, and together we have taken on our most challenging role of becoming new parents to our daughter, Ava Alexandra. This wonderful experience has already taught us that perfection is unattainable– both in parenthood and in keeping the house clean.
