I have a diverse background. I grew up in Dorchester and lived in a triple decker. My father died when I was young, and I was raised by my mother and my grandmother. My mother worked as credit manager for an oil company located in front on Fenway Park. On the weekends we would drive to her work and go see the Red Sox. The company moved to Framingham as I was entering high school. A woman she worked with had two sons and a small farm in Ashland. This is where I fell in loved with agriculture and cows. I attended Norfolk Cty Agricultural High school in Walpole.
After graduation, I attended Stockbridge School of Agriculture and then transferred to UMass. As part of my education at UMASS, I enrolled in education classes. I graduated with a BS in science with a minor in education. This is where I learned how to organize and present material which I feel is a benefit today as a financial advisor.
I became a Vo-Ag teacher on the high school level. I was state FFA advisor and became the president of the MVATA.
I worked in the animal health pharmaceutical industry, teaching veterinarians using their products because of my presentation skills, and earned several top sales awards.
I opened and operated a small business in the sporting goods industry which gave me a understanding of the challenges business owners face.
A financial advisor from Edward Jones helped my wife and I open our accounts, and plan for our future and sparked my interest in Edward Jones as a career. I joined the firm in June 2011.
I belong to The Amherst Chamber of Commerce, Amherst Rotary Club and the Belchertown Lions Club.
I love helping clients identify and set up strategies to accomplish their goals and develop custom portfolios. Along with my branch office administrator, Mara Priestly, we address other financial needs such as college savings plans, life insurance and long-term care insurance to address the whole client.
We want to partner with with you and I invite you to contact us.
