I have been a financial advisor with Edward Jones for more than 26 years. I have served the community of Fairfield since 1992 where I live with my wife, Lori, and our three children, Brooke, Gavin and Drew. All three of our children currently attend Iowa State University.
I am a member of the Edward Jones Grassroots Task Force, which is dedicated to making the voice of the individual investor heard on Capitol Hill. Established in 1985, the Grassroots Task Force is the securities industry’s only volunteer advocacy organization. The task force is comprised of financial advisors and branch office administrators from all 50 states. Its representatives serve as a constituent resource for elected officials and staff to ensure they are well informed on legislative and regulatory issues impacting individual investors.
I hold the AAMS® professional designation and am a graduate of Truman
State University in Kirksville, MO, where I earned a bachelor’s degree in communications.
I believe in the importance of community service and am currently serving as president of the Fairfield Evergreen Cemetery. I am a past president of the Carnegie Museum Foundation. I have served as a board member of the Jefferson County Hospital Foundation, Jefferson County Fair Board, Fairfield Youth Football League, and the Stars and Stripes Youth Wrestling Club. I am also involved with the First United Methodist Church and serve on their Finance Committee.
