For more than twenty years I have been helping individuals in Allen, McKinney, Plano and the surrounding areas plan for their financial futures.
Previously, I was President, partner and Chief Compliance Officer at JWA Financial Group. In addition to the pleasure of working with a great team and hundreds of clients, I had the privilege of co-hosting (with the firm’s founder, Jim Whiddon) a weekly financial radio show. It was an honor to interview such notable financial thinkers as John Bogle, Eugene Fama, Burton Malkiel, Richard Thaler and Robert Shiller.
I started my career in 1998 at another prominent Dallas financial planning firm, Carter Financial Management. There I had the opportunity to work at one of the first firms to promote comprehensive financial planning (way back in 1975), with one of the most recognized financial planning teams in the country.
In short, I have been very lucky to work with or interview the best and brightest stars in the areas of financial planning, finance and investment management over the last two decades. I am fortunate to love my work and look forward to helping our clients achieve their financial goals each day.
My twenty years in the financial services industry has taught me that money is only one dimension of wealth – your family, health and happiness are just as important. I published a book, Wealthfulness, in 2018 describing this much broader definition of a person’s wealth.
