So often people get insurance because it is required or they know they need it without understanding how that policy will perform when they need it the most. Because of this, Michel’s company motto is to educate, advise and empower consumers and her clients to not just get insurance, but get the right insurance for them, their families and their assets.
Michel and her husband Kevin have lived in the Little Elm community for thirteen years and couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. They have one child, McKaylah. Michel is very involved and active in the community and is currently serving as Board President of the Little Elm Friends of the Library and is the Admin Chair for the Little Elm Rotary Club.

My first lesson in the importance of having a financial strategy was a direct result of my great-grandparents. Shortly after I was born, they set aside some money for my college education. Thanks to them, I was able to graduate from college debt-free. This tradition has continued. My grandmother provided for my children and my turn will come to pay for a future generation’s college expenses.
My association with Edward Jones began in 2003 shortly after my wife and I moved to Frisco when we became clients. In 2013, I made the second-best decision of my life (marrying Lori was the best decision) and joined the firm as a financial advisor.
My wife is a speech-language pathologist with the Celina Independent School District. My sons, Connor and Caleb, graduated from Lonestar High School in Frisco and Louisiana Tech University.
One-size-fits-all may be fine for some investors, but I believe investments should be tailored to your needs. I want to understand what is important to you.

Volunteering in the community is important to me. I am currently working with:
