I am an insurance agency owner with a passion for helping people. I have been assisting clients with their insurance needs since 2008. As the owner of Compass Insurance Partners, I created the company to fill the need of a local insurance agency that specializes in individual health insurance and medicare planning. I also felt that the insurance industry has a strong need for a company with a family culture that embraces technology, which allows our team members more time to be with family and focus on the things they care about. 

 

I’m a Circle of Champions Elite Award winner for my work enrolling clients through the Individual Healthcare Marketplace. I’ve been advising clients with the Affordable Care Act since its inception in 2013. 

 

I am happily married to my wife, Erica, since 2005 and have two wonderful children. We have lived in Springfield since 2003. I graduated from Evangel University with a B.S. in Social Science in 2006.  I am very active in Hope Community Church here in Springfield Missouri. I enjoy playing competitive doubles Beach Volleyball. I also am  very engaged in our children's education at Gloria Deo Academy.
