My life is so full and busy that it’s hard to sum up in a paragraph or two for a bio introduction on a website. Obviously, you already know that I’m a financial advisor but that is just one small piece of me. I’ve been married to my husband since 1996 and have 5, sometimes 6 children. If that leaves you scratching your head, it’s because we opened our doors to children that needed a family to love them in 2014. We have two biological children, have adopted 3 children, and then have what we call a “bonus child” that spends a lot of time with us.
My husband, Shane, divides his time between CHI St. Vincent and Arkansas Hospice as their Chaplain. He served in various associate pastor positions at different churches for over 20 years before switching to the role of Chaplain.
I graduated from Ouachita Baptist University in 1999 with a degree in professional accountancy. I worked both public and private accounting for about 7 years until I really felt a pull away from it. Feeling a need to minister to kids, I thought teaching may be the direction to go and tried my hand at substitute teaching. Hindsight, I’m glad the Lord shut that door and soon after opened the door to financial advising. I obtained my securities licenses in 2007 and have worked with the StrongTower team ever since.
I can say that helping people with their finances and helping them set and meet their goals is something I truly enjoy. I also work with the best people I could imagine. Thankfully, I think they like me too because I’m not going anywhere! Good people with integrity, character, and values are hard to come by and work side by side with. Because of that, I foresee many more years of, not only working in the financial services industry, but also working with the StrongTower team.
