Our team is passionate, caring and ready to go to work for you. I can help with retirement and estate considerations for serious, long-term investors who value thoughtful advice and desire a complete retirement strategy.

We all have goals. But, at times, we may be unsure of our progress towards those financial goals. Can I get there? How do I get there? Am I on track?

We are ready to help you get answers. We'll listen for the "why" behind your goals. Then, we'll use an established process to map a path forward specifically for you.

Along the way, I'll be with you to monitor your progress, examine and manage risks, coordinate for tax-efficiency and help keep you on track.

We strive to help our clients thrive in retirement. We want them to live freely as we partner in creating and realizing goals for their life and legacy.

I hold the Series 7 and Series 66 securities registrations and also earned the AAMS® professional designation in 2010.

Originally from Waterloo, IL, I have lived in Quincy since 1999. I have been married to my wife, Melinda, for 26 years. I am an active member of the community, serving on the board of directors of the Blessing Foundation. I have also served as past campaign chairman for the United Way, Salvation Army Tree of Lights, Western Illinois Heart Walk and Quincy Area YMCA.

Senior Branch Office Administrator Janice Zanger has lived in Quincy her entire life and has 13 years of experience at Edward Jones.

Senior Branch Office Administrator Cheryl Waterman, a lifetime local resident, has been with Edward Jones for six years. She helps to deepen client relationships and assist you with your administrative questions.

We look forward to working with you.
