The client experience is at the core of everything.  We offer tailored financial concepts and strategies to enhance the lives of our clients, their families and/or businesses.



MFA operates with a strong and diverse team of financial services professionals, who embrace healthy entrepreneurism, with client relationships coming second only to a healthy family-life/work balance.



Help each client identify their objective and foundation; strengthen and protect them by incorporating ideas and concepts that align with a clear plan; then continually assess and adjust the plan, as necessary, to stay on target.


As a founding partner of Meridian Financial Associates, I am committed to building a first-class team that helps individuals and families navigate the countless financial decisions and obstacles that they encounter on their journey. I’ll work alongside you to co-create a lifetime wealth plan that addresses your unique needs and goals, focuses on your hopes and dreams, using proven strategies to accumulate and protect assets. 

Throughout my life I have devoted myself to education, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Bloomsburg University, a Master of Business Administration degree from LaSalle University, as well as the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC®) and Retirement Income Certified Professional (RICP®) designations from The American College. These tools and experiences form the foundation of the work I do with those entrusted to me. I would be honored to journey with you!

I am blessed to serve God and my community as the Associate Pastor of Trucksville United Methodist Church, where I have an opportunity to lead worship and focus on mission and community service projects. My wife Allison and I have three amazing daughters, Emma (a Senior at the University of Mary Washington, majoring in Theatre), Abby (a Sophomore at George Mason University, studying Sociology) and Sarah (a Junior at Dallas High School). 

If you have questions about finances (or faith), I’d love to have a conversation with you soon!  Email me at or call me at 570.821.1600.
