I have many certifications including CFP®, RICP®, CRPC®, CPWA®, CEPA®. I love endurance racing. I have done a lot of marathons, Ironman Triathlon Races, and competitive 100-mile cycling races. Every morning, I hit my knees and ask God to give me the opportunity to add value to people’s lives in the way he sees fit. That could be through work, at the grocery store, or through working purposefully in the community. 

A social cause I care about is...

Poverty. I grew up very poor, and I think financial education can change lives. The more educated we are, the more aware we are, the better decisions we make that impact our financial futures.

A book or film that changed my life is...

``Hoosiers.`` I believe in the underdog mentality and the ability to accomplish things against odds.

My pet is...

2 dogs: Jackson, a border collie and Roscoe, a ``Taco Bell dog``.
