Vice President at F&M Bank
Osaic Institutions Financial Advisor with F&M Financial Services, Inc.
Originally from Bridgewater, I graduated from Turner Ashby High School and Radford University. I now call Ottobine, VA home with my wife, Lindsay, and our two daughters. Outside the office, I enjoy sports, remaining active with my church, and supporting local organizations in the Shenandoah Valley.
What’s the most rewarding part of your work?
I enjoy being a problem solver for my clients. At the end of the day if the client has an issue or problem, they are looking to me for the solution. It is not an exact science but being able to customize each plan for every client is extremely exciting and rewarding.
How can residents of the Shenandoah Valley area benefit from working with a financial advisor?
The Shenandoah Valley is filled with a diverse population of workers, families, and communities. We are growing at a very fast rate and becoming even more diverse. A financial advisor is well positioned to provide a level of advice and expertise in the form of finances that can greatly benefit the population.

Having a trusted name and person to go to is something more and more people are seeking. In this complex world of speed and efficiency it is easy to understand why people tend to neglect their finances and only focus on what they need to accomplish each day. Working with an advisor is a way to relieve some of that financial burden but more so a way to find a partner in your financial story. I want to walk along with you, not lead.
What fees would come with having a financial advisor?
Fee structures are changing and evolving. The emergence of technology platforms that give purchasing power to the consumer are becoming very popular. At F&M Financial Services, we discuss your options that range from traditional transaction-type of accounts, to individualized portfolios, to managed model programs that can have multiple associated third parties. Regardless of your investment choices, we understand that these discussions can feel intimidating, which is why we are always transparent about the process and the associated fees.
