Smith & Wood Wealth Management

My Background

Born and raised in Northwest Georgia, I started my financial services career in in 2002. Prior to that my professional focus was in business development through sales and marketing.

Drawn by their client-first service approach to financial services, I joined Benjamin F. Edwards & Co. in 2015 as a financial advisor in our Rome, GA, office. In 2021, with the retirement of Bruce Hunter, our long-time partner, Scott Wood and I have continued our partnership under the name Smith & Wood Wealth Management. Along with our associate Marsha Mayben, we look forward to serving our current and future clients in the years to come.

Outside of work, I like to spend time with my wife, Hollye; and our two young daughters, Mary Burke and Harper. I also enjoy barbequing, riding bikes, working out and traveling. In addition, I’m a huge University of Georgia fan.
