As an Edward Jones financial advisor, I believe it’s important to understand what you’re working towards before you invest your money. It's also important to understand the level of risk you're comfortable with and how much time you have when investing so I can create a personalized strategy to help reach your long-term goals. We will monitor your progress together to help make sure you stay on track or determine if any adjustments need to be made. Throughout it all, my team and I are dedicated to providing you top-notch client service.

I began my Edward Jones career in 2016 as a financial advisor on the northwest side of Grand Rapids. However, my passion for my work started awhile ago while I was in the Army. I joined the Army after high school for the G.I. Bill to help pay for college. I was then randomly assigned as the "stocks and bonds guy" by my commanding officer and was told to direct soldiers to our headquarters for answers about their retirement accounts. I caught the financial bug and after I left the Army in 1997, I started working for a financial planning company and earned my Finance degree from Grand Valley State University. I worked as a financial planning analyst for many years, where I created and managed investment portfolios for the firm and helped develop financial plans for clients. Progressing to Edward Jones allowed me an opportunity to use my experience, education and training to build my own practice where I can help individual investors work toward achieving their financial goals.

At Edward Jones, we're focused on you. The firm has thousands of people and advanced technology supporting our offices so that my branch office administrator, Amber Paepke, and I can provide you with world class service while helping you reach your long-term financial goals. I would like to help provide the answers to your questions so you can make informed, financially sound decisions. Please contact me to discuss your situation and options.
