I have been a licensed financial advisor and insurance agent for over 22 years. I have experience in branch bank management with SunTrust Bank in Atlanta. I also served as a backup finance manager at a car dealership for a while. I have completed and closed at least 1000 applications and loans of all types. Several years ago I also served as a mobile notary signer in the Atlanta, GA area, although I don't remember what company I worked with. I am detailed oriented when it comes to paperwork. I understand the importance of getting it right the first time and of maintaining privacy for my clients.
Army service for 7 years in the 82nd Airborne Division, 18th Airborne Corps, 518th MP Battalion, two years in Germany, and 9th Infantry Division...all years in the military police. I have a total of 18 years of military and civilian police experience (Patrol, SWAT, Narcotics, Burglary, Special Security Operations, Field Training Officer). I then transitioned to financial services starting with Prudential Life and then management with SunTrust Bank. At SunTrust in the mid 90′s, I was part of the original management team that implemented the In Store Banking Division in Publix Supermarkets in the Atlanta Metro area. I eventually left SunTrust Bank and worked with various companies in financial and estate planning as well as employee benefits consultation. This included doing retirement planning for school teachers in DeKalb County, Georgia where I worked with teachers in 42 schools, as well as employees of the Georgia State Department of Education. I also traveled the state of Georgia working with employees of member banks of the Community Bankers Association and member dealerships of the Automobile Dealer’s Association of Georgia consulting on supplemental employee benefits. I worked several years with an estate and financial planning firm as a financial planner meeting with 8 to 15 families a week helping them with their insurance, estate and financial planning needs. I’ve been self-employed since 2005. The guiding principal in my business affairs is found in Proverbs 21:6, “A fortune made by a lying tongue is a fleeting vapor and a deadly snare.”
