As an Edward Jones financial advisor, it is my great joy and responsibility to help you achieve the financial goals that you desire. Whether it is retiring comfortably, caring for your family, growing your business or supporting causes you are passionate about – I work hard to unravel what's most important to you and fully understand your unique story. This helps me create a personalized strategy that fits your needs. Then, we partner together over the long term to help keep you on track to achieving your goals. Before proudly serving with Edward Jones, I had serious health concerns. I used that opportunity to embrace homeschooling my four children while I built a global holistic health coaching business that allowed others who struggle with food sensitivities, inflammation and celiac disease to reach their goals using established, personalized plans. With deep life experiences, a passion for people and an abundance of industry experience, I am able to help my clients with their complex financial needs. Serving in the community has always been important to me. I'm honored to be a veteran of the United States Air Force, where I served as unit deployment manager and an aircraft electrician and environmentalist on the U-2 reconnaissance plane. Later, I tutored math and served as president of my class at the University of Colorado Health Science Center. I volunteered in many capacities with the Veterans Affair Liaison at Pikes Peak Community college. Our family has settled in Blythewood and I dove right into serving the local community. You'll find me serving in Blythewood Chamber of Commerce, Junior League of Columbia, The Big Red Barn, a veteran non-profit, counseling low-income communities at the Christian Assistant Bridge and teaching financial fitness to local teens and business owners. It's a privilege to serve as a guide and advocate with something so meaningful and intimate as a person's finances. I invite you to experience the dedication and focus you deserve. It all begins with a conversation. Let's get started today.
