Brad began his career in financial services in 2008 as an intern at Northwestern Mutual while attending Western Illinois University. Upon graduating from WIU, he accepted a position at J.P. Morgan Chase, eventually becoming Vice President of Investments for the Central Illinois area.  In 2015, he joined the team at Investment Strategists at Better Banks, where he has enjoyed practicing ever since. Brad holds the Chartered Special Needs Consultant® (ChSNC®) designation from the American College of Financial Services and has a passion helping individuals and families with special needs navigate the complex planning in this area of his practice.

 In his spare time, Brad enjoys volunteering within the community. He currently serves on the board of the Central Illinois Autism Association and on the hub team of the Autism Collective’s Project ECHO ®. When he’s not helping his clients or volunteering within the community, he enjoys working out, watching his favorite sports teams, and spending time being a dad to his son, Caleb.

I enjoy taking complex topics and delivering them to my clients in a way that is easily understood. Each day presents a new opportunity to better someone’s life and I am grateful for that.
