In 2008 my wife decided she wanted to go back to school. It wasn’t just any ordinary school, but medical school. I knew it was going to take a lot of money to get her through it. I was nervous and unsure, however I didn’t flinch when she asked, “Can I go back?“ Without even thinking about it, I said “Absolutely!“ I wasn’t going to tell her "no" and stand in the way of her dreams.
I had recently finished my undergraduate degree and was starting out in the workforce with very little savings. I had no idea what we were going to do. That’s when I knew I needed to come up with a plan.
This new adventure in our lives made me consume as much information as I could about finances and financial planning. It even led to me returning to school, eventually finishing with my MBA with a concentration in finance. As a graduate student, I had the opportunity to learn all aspects of finance and also teach others.
Academia was a wonderful opportunity, but I knew that something was missing. In 2017, I met with an advisor from Edward Jones. We discussed how fulfilling it was to help others so that they too could also work towards reaching their goals.
There are three significant days that stand out in my life. The first was the day I married my wife. The second was watching her receive her medical degree (MD), knowing she was debt-free, and that our persistence and planning had paid off. The third was joining the Edward Jones family. Very few people get to go to work each day, doing work they believe in and are passionate about. Edward Jones has allowed me to build a career that enables me to serve my community, work with our clients to reach their goals and build a secure financial future for our clients.
