As a child, I remember talking to a stranger about her life as a physician. She beamed as she spoke of her patients, experiences and making a difference; the passion with which she spoke drove straight into me. I knew I wanted to live a life of service to others and I wanted to be a doctor. After high school, I was privileged to serve a two-year mission. I directly aided many different communities helping people move, cleaning houses for those that could not, praying with those who were sick; witnessing the joy as well as the suffering of others. This strengthened my desire to help.
At my first college mixer, I met the love of my life, Jenny. A year and a half later, we were married. Shortly thereafter, I got into my first college biology course where I realized quickly that it was not for me and I couldn't fathom the thought of studying it for the rest of my life. Then Jenny and I made the very sensible decision to go on a three-week tour of Europe with the business students. On that trip, I became close to one of the economics professors and through our conversations, I discovered that finance and economics are amazing and exciting, and I could be of service to others doing something I love. I now have a bachelor's degree in financial economics.
My wife, Jenny, and I now have three children, Lexi (6), Oakley (4), and Tessa (1). The five of us love to explore the world through travel and books. Jenny and I always find a way to dance together either in the kitchen or at the restaurants we visit. Lexi and Oakley are growing in skill in their Taekwondo classes.
Being a financial advisor is having the opportunity to continue studying the ever-changing field of economics and finance and utilize my passion for service. I enjoy guiding my clients with enthusiasm and passion. Those in the medical profession are trained to do something that I dreamed of doing – they help people heal. As your financial advisor, I will help you remove and eliminate the emotional burden that can come with family finances, freeing you to focus on the things you are passionate about.
At your service,
