I believe in the value of strong relationships--based on trust and built on teamwork. This is the standard I use in working with my clients. Whether preparing for retirement, saving for education or protecting their families with insurance. I want to know what is most important to them. Next, we work as partners to build and maintain a customized plan to reach those goals. Finally, I believe in clarity--explaining investment concepts, costs and strategies, so people are equipped to make informed and confident decisions.
Our office is centrally located in Winnipeg, just blocks from Little Italy. Kristin Nielsen, our Branch Office Administrator, has worked together with me since 2014, She is known for her friendly service and her attention to detail. We both strive to go above and beyond in taking care of our clients.
I graduated from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Arts (major in Anthropology and a minor in Geology). I also spent 5 years in Vancouver and love the west coast. However, I'm a Prairie boy at heart, and moved back to Manitoba to marry Heidi, my childhood sweetheart. I started my career with Edward Jones in 2012, and work closely with folks in Winnipeg and the surrounding communities, helping to make a real difference for their future and for their families.
When not working with clients, I enjoy spending time at home with Heidi, our five boys and our golden retriever, Buddy. I also enjoy woodworking and travelling, including our annual family fishing trip to the Duck Mountains, a highlight of every summer. With a busy household there are always projects on the go--I'm most proud of the permanent hockey rink, my sons and I built in our back yard.
At Edward Jones we believe in personal attention and small town service, treating others the way we like to be treated. Our mission is to help you become informed, secure and confident in your financial future. Give us a call, or stop by the office--we look forward to meeting you!
