My Story

As a financial advisor, I encourage families to have a positive relationship with money and to be the best stewards of all that God has entrusted to them. Money is a tool that God uses with His children to create lives rich in meaning, gratitude, joy and abundance. Starting my financial services career in 2017, I launched my own financial planning practice in Marietta, Georgia within an experience team. After a path as a field manager with Thrivent for several years, I subsequently established the Avonlea Financial Group with financial advisor Katherine Gross in 2022. All throughout my tenure, my journey reflects a commitment to this profession and the clients and community I am privileged to serve.

Paying It Forward

My mission is to uplift my community and pave the way for a brighter future. As the Stewardship Chair with my local congregation, I dedicate myself to fostering others with a spirit of giving and abundance through biblical stewardship of God’s resources. Additionally, I am honored to serve as a Merit Badge Counselor for Personal Management, Music, and Bugling with the Scouts BSA - Atlanta Area Council. This role allows me to lead educational sessions with youth and spearhead the recruitment of adult leaders for Merit Badge Summits. In collaboration with cause organizations like The Sandwich Project, which tackles food scarcity in metro Atlanta, my team and I mentor youth in making meaningful community contributions. I firmly believe that God calls us to invest in others and our communities to His glory which enriches the world and also aligns with a purpose of spreading generosity through proactive engagement.
