Why Edward Jones
Following an extensive career in education, I made the career change to Edward Jones. During my teaching career, I found I enjoyed learning about finances and investing. I was able to do this through being a client of Edward Jones for many years. It was during this time that I discovered that my passion of educating and investing/finances could be blended into the perfect role for me: financial advisor.

I chose Edward Jones for three reasons: 1. We are a privately-owned partnership, which best positions me to put your needs first. 2. We have the support of thousands of team members, along with research, available to make recommendations that put our clients’ interests first. 3. My passion is people. While I may deal in numbers, researching investments and developing financial strategies, what I’m really passionate about is people: working with clients to help them achieve their long-term financial goals. We treat clients as we would like to be treated.

About Me
I attended Penn State University earning my bachelor's degree, Nova Southeastern University earning my master's degree, and Stetson University earning my specialist degree in education. I have lived in Florida since 1994. I have three children who were all raised in Central Florida. My daughter, Amada, and her husband, Sal, and three children live in Ohio. My other children, Lucas and Giana, live at home with me. On a weekend, you may find us enjoying outdoor activities such as bike riding or going to a festival. If it is football season, it will be time watching the games with my local Penn State Alumni Association. You may also find us spending time with extended family, celebrating a birthday, holiday or participating in a local event.

Our Partnership
As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to understand what you’re working toward before you invest your money: whether this means living in or working toward retirement, paying for an education, preparing for the unexpected or something completely different for you, I can help develop a strategy tailored to help you achieve your financial goals.

I focus on learning what is most important to you. I want to know what hesitations you may have, and I want to make the process simple and easy to understand, so that you can have a great client experience. Let's get started and begin our partnership!
