LPL Financial Advisor & Founder Prairie State Investments

At Prairie State Investments, we focus on serving the financial needs of individual investors of all ages and financial means. We have built our business by treating our clients as we would want to be treated, a simple idea that still makes sense in today’s complex marketplace.

My Director of Client Services, Barb Koeller, has over 15 years of experience and is dedicated to providing you with the highest level of service possible. Please don’t hesitate to call on her with questions concerning your statement, dividends, stock certificates or your account in general. 

I grew up on a farm in Iowa where my parents raised hogs and ran a corn and soybean operation. In 1995, we relocated to Illinois. I still have family involved in many aspects of farming. 

I attended North Central College and graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree. In 2008, I graduated with a master's degree from Northern Illinois University.

Prior to joining the finance industry, I was a teacher, administrator and coach at Dakota Jr/Sr High School. In that time, I held numerous positions, including classroom teacher, football coach, dean of students, athletic director and assistant principal.

My wife, Annie, is an education leader for Rockford Public Schools. Annie and I, along with our three children, call Lake Summerset home. When not working, we enjoy family outings for sporting events, tractor shows and rides and time in the Northwoods of Wisconsin.

Currently, I am a member of the Sons of The American Legion Post 676-Durand and St. Mary/St. Patrick Parish in Durand, IL.  

Please do not hesitate to call on Barb or I with any questions you may have.
