2023 brings exciting changes as we introduce Edward Jones to the Le Claire community. We are excited for our new office at 1103 Canal Shore Drive, at the front doorstep of this amazing little river town. We were attracted to Le Claire because of the river, and we fell in love with the community and the friendly people. I am beyond excited to be serving our friends and neighbors and look forward to getting more involved in our hometown.

Our team at Edward Jones is committed to you living your best life. From retirement planning to helping you cross off bucket list items or leaving a legacy, we are dedicated to helping you reach your long-term financial goals.

My wife, Carrie, and I live in Le Claire with Bryzzo and Cooper, our two puggles. We enjoy frequent trips to Chicago and Ankeny, visiting our three daughters and two grandsons (and the sons-in-law). Aside from spending time with family, we love to travel to off-the-beaten-path destinations, relaxing on the river and are active in our church.

I hold a bachelor's degree in economics from St. Ambrose University. I joined Edward Jones in 2008 and became a limited partner with the firm in 2014. We currently serve the financial and investment needs of 170 families.

When it comes to the complexities of your life's savings, we don't take chances. We are blessed to have our Senior Office Administrator, Kara Blanche, on board and we are committed to taking care of every last detail when it comes to your investments. Whether it is connecting you to Online Access or making certain you received your tax forms, Kara is on it. Her attention to detail is second to none.

Kara has made it a lifelong commitment of caring for others. Kara has made it a mission of supporting QC Greyhound Adoption, in both adopting greyhounds but also as a dedicated volunteer at the shelter.

Kara graduated from Eastern Kentucky with a bachelor's degree in education and special education. After a decade of teaching, Kara joined the business world. Kara joined Edward Jones in 2010 and became a limited partner in 2014. She and her husband, Neal, live in Davenport.

Together, we look forward to serving you and your family.

"Everyone must be known for something. We want our legacy to be that we helped others achieve what was most important to them." ~ Tim Lane
