My Approach

You are not just another face in the crowd.

You are unique, and so are your financial goals. That’s why I take the time to understand what’s truly important to you.

I can help you prepare for whatever life brings — both the expected and the unexpected — with personalized advice tailored to you. In fact, Ameriprise is rated #1 in the investment industry for trust.1

I deliver personalized financial advice to help you achieve your goals, today and tomorrow, through our Confident Retirement®approach. Working together, I can help you feel more confident, connected, and in control of your financial life.


Being a former football letterman at Appalachian Sate University, I have a keen interest in all sports, most specifically ASU football. I also participate in several charity Blue marlin tounaments each year on the NC coast. I believe that one must maintain physical sharpness and work on maintaining fitness at the local YMCA on a daily basis. My family and two dogs, Max and Jeezie, love to spend our weekends in the high country, outside of Blowing Rock during the weekends.
