Although our clients come from all walks of life, they have one thing in common; they are serious long-term investors seeking the advice of a financial professional for help with achieving their goals.

As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it's important to invest my time to understanding what is important to you. Once we identify your individual financial goals, I use an established process to build personalized strategies to help you achieve those goals. Finally, we will partner together throughout your life to help keep you on track. That's what clients receive when working with our Edward Jones branch team.

Prior to coming to Edward Jones, I served in the United States Army from 1981 to 2001 as a Military Policeman. Upon retiring from the military, I attended the University of Minnesota and graduated from the College of Mortuary Science in 2004 with a Bachelor of Science degree and served the community of Mankato as a funeral director until 2008.

In 2008, I left funeral service and joined Edward Jones and opened a branch office in Mankato. In 2015, I relocated to Albert Lea where I, along with five other Edward Jones financial advisors, serve the needs of investors of Albert Lea and Freeborn County.

My branch office administrator, Lory Petersen, has been with Edward Jones since 2016. She is dedicated to providing our clients with the highest level of service possible. She is a tremendous asset to the branch and to our clients.

My wife, Jodi, and I have five grown children and three grandchildren. My hobbies are fishing, playing the piano, golfing and traveling.

Relationships are key, and in our view, meeting face to face builds strong relationships. We meet when it’s convenient for our clients because we recognize the challenging needs of their businesses and their lives.

If you find that you could benefit from our services call us for a complimentary financial strategy review.
