At the age of 19, I joined the Phoenix Police Department where I rose to the rank of lieutenant and worked in many assignments over a span of more than 30 years. During this time, I earned a master’s degree and completed an 11-week training program at the FBI National Academy. Late in my police career, I felt it was time to try a new line of work in the area of financial services. Because of its stellar reputation and high customer service ratings, I knew that Edward Jones would be a perfect fit for me. Though the Great Recession was an especially challenging time, I have never regretted my move to Edward Jones.
I believe our firm has led the way in the financial services industry by taking a personalized approach to investing with an emphasis on the financial advisor/client relationship. Over the years, I have developed a strong personal connection with many of my clients. It is satisfying to know that I have earned their trust by being totally honest with them, taking the time to get to know what is important to them and always serving in their best interests.
Michelle Woodruff is our senior branch office administrator. She connects on a more personal level with all our clients by keeping on top of life events such as birthdays, weddings and health issues. Outside the office, Michelle leads an active life and is totally committed to her family. She is also a Christian author and ordained minister who is very involved in her church.
Robin and I have been married for 46 years. We have three grown children, six grandchildren and two golden retrievers. We moved to Verrado in 2007 and love this vibrant community. We have made it a priority to be involved in many local organizations, which include the Rotary Club of Verrado and the Buckeye Valley Chamber of Commerce. We are active in our church where I serve as a volunteer on the safety and security team. Over the years, I have enjoyed coaching youth sports and have served in the Valley Big Brothers program.
