Joel graduated high school in Clarksville, Arkansas, and joined the Army National Guard immediately after. He spent 10 years in the Guard as an air traffic controller and Blackhawk helicopter pilot and was deployed twice to Iraq.
In-between deployments and training with the Army, Joel completed his Bachelor’s degree in Professional Aeronautics with a minor in business administration from Henderson State University, where he met his wife, Lexie. They moved to Hot Springs after college to start a family. They have two sons, Leo and Cruz.
In addition, Joel’s ability as a financial advisor has allowed him to build a relationship with the Dave Ramsey organization. As a Smart Vestor Pro through the Dave Ramsey organization, Joel regularly works with followers of Dave’s philosophy to provide guidance and assistance in the areas of investments and long-term care planning. Dave Ramsey’s SmartVestor Pro is a directory of investment professionals. Neither Dave Ramsey nor SmartVestor is an affiliate of GenWealth Financial Advisors or LPL.
In his free time, Joel enjoys hiking, swimming and boating on Lake Ouachita, watching Razorback football, and just spending time with friends and family. Joel and Lexie are also a part of the worship team at their church and are also involved with the VFW in Hot Springs.
