Raised in Rantoul, I learned the significance of diligence and the necessity of preparing for unforeseen circumstances. My father, who founded this branch in 1982, taught me the importance of disciplined, long-term investing. My grandparents, farmers in the Rantoul area, inspired me with their unwavering work ethic.

2016 I was delighted to join my father at Edward Jones after relocating from North Carolina with my family. My wife, Renee, and I enjoy cooking, outdoor activities, and traveling. We feel fortunate to raise our two children close to our family.

Our office has established a systematic approach to assist clients in defining and achieving their financial goals. We primarily focus on serving successful business owners and professionals who aspire to a work-optional lifestyle. We utilize face-to-face meetings, web conferences, and phone calls to maintain open communication. I feel privileged to help clients fulfill their ambitions in the community where I grew up.

I obtained my CFP® certification in 2019. My dedicated team, including Kelly Carter and Tiffany Graham, is committed to ongoing professional development to serve our clients best.

Kelly Carter, a Financial Paraplanner Qualified Professional (FPQP), joined our team in June 2018, bringing over 14 years of banking industry experience. Her expertise enhances our branch's ability to provide exceptional client service. Kelly and her husband, Kenny Carter, have two children actively involved in sports. Originally from Flatville, Kelly currently resides in St. Joe.

We have also welcomed Tiffany Graham to our team after she moved to Illinois to be closer to her family. Tiffany is pursuing an MBA at the University of Illinois, further strengthening our team's dedication to professional growth and providing top-notch service to our clients. Tiffany and her husband, Willis Graham, live in rural White Heath and stay busy with their daughter, who enjoys gymnastics and horse riding.
