Justin graduated with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Business Administration from John Brown University in 2007, where he also played collegiate soccer. Upon graduation, the door that opened for Justin wasn't in the business sector, however, it was in ministry. In 2008, Justin was asked to help launch and lead a new campus of LifeChurch.tv in the growing community of Owasso, where he served as Worship Pastor for nearly 6 years.
After his time in ministry, he decided to enter the financial services industry. Having witnessed his father, Randy, approach his practice as a ministry for nearly 30 years, Justin was inspired to pursue a career where he could put others first, and help them work towards their highest financial potential.
Justin resides in Owasso, Oklahoma, with his beautiful wife, Breanne, and their daughter, Lylah.
