A graduate of Mississippi State University with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Economics & Management, Matthew holds Series 7 and 66 securities licenses plus life and health insurance licenses in Mississippi and Alabama.

Understanding that the biggest obstacle to financial security for most people is their own behavior, Matthew serves as a personal financial coach to clients, continually reinforcing positive financial behaviors. His thorough knowledge of military pay and benefits enables him to advise clients on how to navigate the Blended Retirement System, properly allocate their contributions to the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) and take full advantage of other benefits. Matthew will work with you to establish specific, meaningful goals that are consistent with your values and then develop a personalized financial plan to guide your pursuit of those goals.

Active in his community, Matthew is a member of Columbus Chamber of Commerce Military Affairs Committee and Columbus Air Force Base Community Council.
