I started my career as a financial advisor in 2007 to help people meet their financial goals. Over the years working here, I believe that Edward Jones is the best company to help folks do just that, so I'm so fortunate to have started my career here!
I believe I have been called to a life of service to my God, my family and all humanity. With that purpose, investing in my community is one of my greatest passions. I am active with my church and have served on several non-profit boards since moving to Paris. I enjoy working with clients who are also passionate about their communities. There are many ways to manage multiple goals while planning for one's retirement, and I use an established process to help my clients retire while doing what they love.
I have a great team here that works hard for my clients! Melinda Kinslow started with me in 2010 and Kreagan Scott joined us in 2021. Together, we all work diligently to develop deep relationships with our clients and get to know what's most important to each of them. We partner from there to build sustainable strategies and manage those goals over the long-term.
My team is fortunate to be in this business with the trust of our clients that we strive to earn every day. I also believe in the importance of developing my skills and becoming a master at my craft. I graduated magna cum laude from Stephen F. Austin State University with a degree in finance before joining Edward Jones and have since earned my AAMS® and CFP® designations.
Last, and definitely not least, our families are some of the most important parts of our lives, and we prioritize our time with them. We'd love to share photos and stories and hear about you and your family when you come see us!
