With the knowledge that comes with more than 15 years of experience in the financial services industry, Michael helps investors navigate the myriad of available investment options with dedicated and client-focused service and a personal commitment. Moreover, the investment must then be overlaid on a personalized, detailed financial plan that also incorporates tax strategy, insurance planning and estate plans to ensure the recommendations are truly holistic. To accomplish this while balancing a local office feel with the capabilities of a large investment firm, Caliber Wealth Management was formed and partnered with Raymond James Financial Services.

Apart from Raymond James, Michael is active within his community through worship at New Life Community Church and as a board member for the largest Kansas rural water district. He and his wife, Nicole, grew up in small Kansas towns and graduated from Pittsburg State University, and hoped to recreate that tight-knit community feel for their children by moving to Gardner (but have all the conveniences of the city nearby). They enjoy quality time with their family, and lead a very active lifestyle that includes camping, hiking, swimming, playing basketball and traveling. The Wards support our military – Nicole was a captain in the U.S. Army and is a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation New Dawn. God bless America!

Raymond James and its advisors do not offer tax or legal advice. You should discuss any tax or legal matters with the appropriate professional.
