Raised in Houston, MO, I received a Bachelor of Christian Education degree from Ozark Christian College in Joplin, MO. In college, I joined the music ministry of Christ In Youth (CIY) and traveled nationally working with youth from junior high through college ages. CIY led to St. Louis, MO, where my work in the investment and financial services industry began.

I have 40 years of uninterrupted financial industry experience and hold the AAMS™ professional designation.

My industry experience includes Financial Advisor, Edward Jones, 2009-Present; Vice President, Investments, A.G. Edwards & Sons, Inc. (and successors) St. Louis, Rolla, Houston, 1989-2009; Financial Advisor, First Affiliated Securities, St. Louis, 1988-1989; Registered Sales Assistant, Merrill Lynch, St. Louis, 1983-1988; Sales Assistant, Drexel Burnham Lambert, St. Louis, 1982-1983.

Firm recognitions I have received in part include the Edward Jones Founders Achievement; Ted Jones Entrepreneurial; Spirit of Partnership; Regional Leader; and TNT Client Development Awards; A.G. Edwards President's Council and Crest Club.

I was honored by A.G. Edwards Retirement Services, Municipal Bond, Trust Company and Training departments by being asked to speak at internal seminars in order to help other financial advisors effectively use their products and services.

My husband, Dick, is a retired USAF colonel who spent 26 years in service to our country. He was with Boeing in St. Louis for 10 years, then came out of retirement once more to be our on-call branch office administrator. We have a son in Boise, ID, a daughter in Ashburn, VA, four grandchildren and numerous rescue cats and dogs. Our personal focuses are our faith, animal rescue and helping youth.

Deena Elmore, our senior branch office administrator, joined us in 2014 after 25 years in the insurance industry. Deena and her family share our love of animals and have been active in their church and local youth programs through the years.

Together, we appreciate the privilege of working with clients to help them meet their particular needs and goals. Regardless of stage of life or the investing experience of individuals, businesses or organizations, I can tailor portfolios and services to each.

Our industry experience is valuable, but equally so is our understanding of the importance of earning – and keeping – our clients' trust and confidence.
