I have over 25 years of experience in the financial services industry. Maybe more importantly with three daughters between the ages of 16 and 24, I understand all too well the stresses of raising a family, providing for college, while preparing for retirement.
I have seen clients and close family members deal with the results of poor financial decisions. These avoidable mistakes have shipwrecked lifelong plans. In addition, I personally had life-threatening surgeries to remove a non-malignant “pseudo-tumor” from my brain stem. I have been given a clean bill of health; however, the experience impressed upon me:
- the need for a proper emergency reserve,
- the need for proper insurance,
- the need for financial leeway and
- an appreciation for time.
I am passionate about helping working families live fulfilled, God-pleasing lives by addressing their financial situations and planning ahead for their future.
I did my undergraduate work at Texas A&M and received a M.B.A. from the University of Texas (since I have been to both schools, I know which one is best. Just ask me!)
I am a Certified Financial Planner® professional and have the Enrolled Agent designation (from the IRS). These licenses help me to stay updated on the latest techniques and challenges affecting my clients.
I am also a Qualified Kingdom Advisor™.
My wife Karen and I are the proud parents of three daughters and prouder still of our grandsons.
