Ever since I first joined the Edward Jones team in 2015, I’ve been passionate about building our practice around family. Whether I’m welcoming a new client into our family or helping you take care of the generations to come, I understand that at the heart of every investment strategy are the people and things we care about most. That’s why we take an intergenerational approach to investing that helps our clients to enjoy milestones like graduations, weddings, new additions and retirements without having to worry about what they might mean for their financial futures.

The care we take getting to know each of our investors means that they become part of our client family. We believe in building highly personalized relationships with our clients that focus on them as individuals, their goals and their values. Your financial strategy should be every bit as unique as you are, and custom tailoring these strategies to reflect our clients’ individual goals allows us to help put their financial needs back into perspective. By giving a professional and honest opinion of how to stay on track, we can help our clients avoid common pitfalls like reacting to an unpredictable stock market or life event that can hinder investors.

Our branch office in Middletown, DE, is proud to partner with investors from our own community, as well as clients in Maryland, Pennsylvania and other states. Whether they’re around the corner or across the country, our branch team is dedicated to providing exceptional, friendly service at every opportunity. With 17 years of experience at Edward Jones, our Branch Office Administrator, Kelly Tharp, leads that charge by providing our clients with exceptional service, a wealth of knowledge and a warm attitude that makes her an incredible asset for our client family.

Prior to joining Edward Jones, I graduated from Wilmington University with a degree in business administration. I currently live in Cecil County, MD with my wife, Aubree, daughter, Lyla, and dog, Daisy. For fun, I enjoy playing golf, wood working and most importantly, spending time with my family. Our family loves traveling to new places and we also enjoy being home where we spend a lot of time on the Chesapeake Bay. I am also proud to be an active member of the MOT Chamber of Commerce.
