Carrie, an educator in the North Scott school district, and I have three daughters. Carrie recently completed her second Master's degree in Education Administration from St. Ambrose University. Katie is finishing her undergraduate program at St. Ambrose and pursuing her graduate studies in Occupational Therapy, Emily is a pre-Med student at St. Ambrose University, and Madeline is a student at North Scott High School. All three girls are avid runners like their mother, and all active in Dance Marathon, church and supporting many community activities including volunteering at The Friendly House and raising funds for and supporting Special Olympics of Eastern Iowa. Tim and Carrie enjoy art, travelling, the occasional golf outing, and deep sea fishing.
I believe in giving back to the community and active in many organizations, including leadership positions with Bettendorf Business Network, QC100, St. Ann's Catholic Church and The Friendly House.
I work as a financial advisor with Edward Jones Investments in downtown Bettendorf. I work with individuals and small businesses in retirement planning, devising income solutions and investment strategies while working to protect client assets. I enjoy working with clients in simplifying their financial lives. My skillset as a financial advisor is backed by the expertise of Edward Jones, a firm that has been helping individuals plan for their financial futures since 1922.
Prior to Edward Jones, I lead the sales department for a national multimedia production company, working with major league sports teams and Fortune 500 companies across the US. I have a bachelor's degree from St. Ambrose University, where I studied economics, political science and finance.
It was through my early involvement with a community service project that I was exposed to the great work Rotarians do, but most significantly was how a group of individuals can come together in the name of service, and change lives forever. I never would have condsidered volunteering on my own for Special Olympics, but because a group of Rotarians were getting together to support the local cause, I was able to introduce my children to a tremendous organization committed to supporting those with special needs. Through Rotary's involvement locally with Special Olympics, my children were exposed to service, and all have dedicated a part of their lives to giving back to those who are not as fortunate. It was because of the great work Rotary does, that my children have stayed involved with Special Olympics and worked on relief efforts for tornado victims in Joplin, MO and Moore, Oklahoma.
In 2009, I moved my membership to the Bettendorf Rotary Club. I have enjoyed with fellow Rotarians in delivering holiday baskets, volunteering every week to read with first graders, distributing dictionaries to fourth graders, and serving on a committee to bring clean water to a village in Haiti. In addition, I have been able to play a part in Lobsterfest, which serves as our club's largest annual fundraiser. I am grateful to be a part of such tremendous work, with some of the most generous and committed members of our community, my Rotary friends.
