As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it is critical to invest my time to understand what is important to you before you invest your money. I want to make sure I know what is on your mind at each appointment and focus on that, along with keeping your long-term goals on track. I can help bring you closer to the future you see for yourself.
If you are going through a life change, whether it involves a change of job, retirement, divorce, illness or death of a loved one, we are here to listen, support and help you navigate through that very difficult situation. We will partner with you, your tax professional and estate attorney to help ensure everything is set up the way you want it.
I am a lifelong Topekan. I graduated from Washburn University with a Bachelor of Business Administration, double majoring in finance and economics. I had a successful career of 23 years in banking prior to joining Edward Jones in 2009. I hold my Series 7 and 66 licenses. I am licensed in numerous states and have clients all over the US.
Our team consists of myself and branch office administrator, Dina Moulden, who is just beginning her career with Edward Jones. Please do not hesitate to call Dina with questions or to schedule a meeting.
