About Me

I am a native of southeastern Minnesota, graduating from Rushford High School in 1971, and Concordia College, Moorhead, Minnesota in 1975, with a B.A. in education.  Prior to entering this business I was an elementary teacher and Principal, acquiring a Masters Degree in Education Administration from Iowa State University.

My wife, Hope, and I enjoy our three grown children, spouses and four grandchildren.  Maintaining a strong family foundation and continuing to develop strong physical, mental and spiritual health is very important to me.  Hope and I like to travel, and I especially enjoy being involved in endurance athletics; triathloning and long distance bicycling.

I find my work to be very challenging and rewarding.  It is my intention to continue serving the people of Winona and the surrounding area for many years to come.  I have more than 36 years of experience in the financial services industry and have been a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ practitioner since 1993.
