As an Edward Jones financial advisor since 2003, I partner with retirees, small business owners and families to build personalized strategies to help meet their financial goals. Throughout our partnership, we'll use the Edward Jones 5-step process to establish and regularly confirm your financial foundation by:

- Creating specific financial goals based on what's important to you

- Assessing how comfortable you are with taking risk

- Recommending tailored solutions, aligned with your comfort for risk, to help you achieve those goals.

My Branch Office Administrators, Penny Gaissert and Johanna Stapleton, are true professionals, dedicated to delivering excellent client service. Penny and Johanna have over 40 years of experience in the financial services industry and take great pride in going the extra mile for the families we serve.

In the spirit of volunteerism, I have served as a performance leader, mentor and coach. I now assist other high performing financial advisors through the Ted Jones Coaching Program. I am also an active member of the First Baptist church and past president of the Griffin Exchange Club. My wife, Jessica, our three daughters and I currently live in Brooks, GA. We live on a farm with our many animals which include dogs, cats, goats, sheep, guinea fowl and chickens. I also enjoy coaching my daughter's youth sports, camping and Georgia Tech athletics.

At Edward Jones, our purpose and goal is to improve the lives of our clients and their families now and for generations to come. Additionally, we welcome the opportunity to work with your estate attorney, CPA and other trusted professionals to deliver a comprehensive strategy that leverages everyone's expertise. Working together, we can help you develop a complete, tailored strategy to help you achieve your financial goals.
