I have lived in LaGrange, North Carolina my entire life. While growing up on a family farm, my grandparents and parents taught me the meaning of hard work and the value of money. I worked on the family farm every summer until I left for college. I was held to a higher standard because I was to set the example for the other workers. Now, my family lives on that farmland, where we enjoy the peacefulness of country living.

After graduating from East Carolina University in 2001 with my bachelor's degree, I worked 15 years in another career helping exceptional children. I joined Edward Jones in 2016. I have been part of the Edward Jones family since 2007 when my husband, Stokes, joined the firm as a financial advisor in Kinston.

It is my experience in education that helps to me easily breakdown the complexities of investing into simple concepts. I really enjoy educating clients on the basics of investing. It's important for my clients and I to start on the same page so that together we can achieve what's most important to you. I help individuals and families organize and build wealth, protect goals and transfer wealth as tax efficiently as possible to loved ones. I work with estate attorneys, CPAs and other professionals to completely address your financial needs.

We have two amazing daughters that keep us active and engaged in the community. I have attended Trinity United Methodist Church since I was born. I am currently serving as the worship chairman and I have always been actively involved with the youth. I enjoy traveling, spending time at Topsail Island and being with my family and friends.

My team consists of senior branch office administrators Johni Hussey and Anna Smith which have over 45 years of experience in the financial industry. They handle all of the administrative needs for the office.
