I specialize in retirement, investment & insurance planning for my clients. I want to earn the right, over time, to be considered by you as your retirement planning professional. My goal is to establish a long-term, mutually beneficial, win/win relationship with my clients.
Over the last 10 years in this business, my true passion has been to bring all the puzzle pieces together so that my clients can retire with confidence. I primarily spend my time working with educators in Southwest Virginia. I represent Virginia Retirement Specialists Inc., a firm that specializes in helping educators understand the benefits under the Virginia Retirement System and helping them build a comprehensive retirement plan for their future.
I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from West Liberty University along with an MBA specializing in International Business. I was a captain on my Hilltopper wrestling team, and was an NCAA 3x National Qualifier, earning All-American honors during my senior season. I grew up in Huntington WV where my parents still reside and are avid Marshall Football fans.
I enjoy spending quality time with my wife Ashley, two kids Kyleigh (5) and Colesen (2), and Lab Addie. If not with my family or working with clients you’ll find me fishing or enjoying a round of golf.
My Mission Statement : To help families achieve their financial goals by uncovering their needs with customized solutions to unlock their full potential.

At VRSI we understand that individuals face unique challenges as they prepare for retirement. We can help take the mystery out of preparing for today and tomorrow. Whether your goal is preparing for retirement, college savings, or legacy planning, our personalized service focuses on your needs, wants, and financial goals and objectives.
We are in no way affiliated with the Virginia Retirement System, but we do specialize in the benefits available to you under the VRS and provide programs that are designed, not to replace the benefits that you currently qualify for, but are designed to supplement and enhance those benefits.
Many retirees, even those with 30 or more years of service, find that their retirement income is far from adequate - often less than 50% of their final salary. Most people spend more time planning a two-week vacation than in planning for a thirty year retirement. A few minutes of appropriate retirement planning can help avoid some retirement mistakes.
