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 serving as an associate pastor at our church, chaplain for the hospital, and a dean of a small Christian college in our town. Oh, and he helps tag team for me with the kids.
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 untill 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. Hind sight, I’m glad the Lord shut that door and soon after opened the door to financial advising. I got 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.
