James has completed the most extensive educational program required for any financial services credential. Advisors with the ChFC® designation are required to serve you with the highest level of professionalism. All ChFC® advisors are required to do the same for clients that they would do for themselves in similar circumstances. He also earned his Retirement Income Certified Professional® designation from The American College in 2016. A RICP is an advanced designation for individuals who specialize in the retirement income planning field. Retirees, and soon-to-be retirees, need to pick a well trained, educated, and qualified financial professional to help develop their retirement income plan. An RICP® has that specific education and knowledge that can help you think through all the complexities of making resources last throughout retirement.

He has earned his Series 65 Securities License and is a licensed Investment Advisor Representative. He has also passed FINRA series 7, 6 and 63.
He is passionate about a healthy balance of work and family, so he built a home close to the office in order to have more time to spend with his wife, Missy, and his two boys, Carson and Max. In his free time, he enjoys flying remote-controlled airplanes, spending time at the lake and boating with friends and family.
