I was a high school teacher and coach before joining Waddell & Reed in 1982. My wife, Ginger, and I have three children, Melanie, Ryan and Ben. Ryan works with Waddell & Reed with me in the Bloomington Office. Ben works with Waddell & Reed in the Waukesha Wisconsin Office. We have nine grandchildren. For the past 33 years Waddell & Reed and I have helped many people with their financial concerns and I plan to continue doing so going forward.
