I was born in Bristol, TN, where I spent my childhood focused on education and sports. Those two interests led me to pursue a degree at Appalachian State University, but I ended up transferring to the University of South Carolina, where I graduated as a scholar-athlete (football).
The start of my journey in the world of finance was either by accident or God’s grace. In 1993 I was using my degree to get a job, really any job. I was excited that I had the skills the banking industry needed. A few promotions later, I was managing a wholesale residential mortgage business. Despite my success, I felt I could use financial services to help people even more.
In 2009, I joined Edward Jones in Greensboro, NC, with zero assets under management. I took the skills I had learned earlier in my career, used the training Edward Jones provided, and worked diligently with the community and prospects to share the potential impact proper financial guidance can provide. Over the next four years, I built a successful business that helped clients continue to achieve their financial goals during a tough economy.
In 2012, I moved my practice to Douglasville, GA. Here, with Edward Jones, I have built a business with my community. Helping clients understand financial strategies while learning their goals and what is important to them is a role I enjoy, and one I will retire in.
I am an active member of the Douglas County Education Foundation (Formally Public Education Trust-PET), Kiwanis, and a member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. Additionally, I serve on the West Georgia Technical College Board, Douglas County Chamber Finance committee and my church's finance committee. I enjoy spending time with my family, golfing, fishing and traveling around the world.
