We made a family decision and joined the Edward Jones family. It has allowed me to continue taking care of people and changing lives. I want to get to know you and learn what is most important to you, use our established process to build an individualized strategy and partner together throughout your life, helping to keep you on track. I believe wholeheartedly that we will become friends and like family in this partnership.

On a personal note, I have a wonderful wife, Kari, and two terrific daughters, Kellsie and Karissa. Kellsie is our Class of 2022 graduate from Roane County High School and competitive dancer, while Karissa, our 6-year-old, likes swimming, dance, golf and trying to be just like her sister. I attended the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, where I received my bachelor's degree. While at UTK, I earned a letter in football, made the SEC Scholar-Athlete Honor Roll, was on two SEC Champion football teams and a member of the 1998 National Champion football team. I went on to earn my doctorate at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga. We like to have fun outside the office with traveling, attending dance competitions to support "Big Sis", watching all things animated with "Little Bit", swimming and playing golf.

Finding ways to pay it forward, I pursue activities to help in our community including:
- Lions Club
- Civitan International
- Operation REACH
- Alzheimer's Association

My branch office administrators, Angie Eason and Nina Lay, are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible.

We believe in the power of family to achieve dreams when we lean into them. We enjoy teaching how planning can change their life's trajectory and their legacy. Our clients either are or have been hardworking professionals who are positive and realistic, value our process and focus on our worth rather than cost.
