Kenny Meeks, Edward Jones

Certified Financial Planner

A word from Kenny:

“My name is Kennith Meeks. I have been a resident of this great state of Indiana for more than 30 years. I was blessed to have an opportunity to play football, meet my wife (Carrie) and graduate from the Miller College of Business at Ball State. Therefore, I lightheartedly prefer being considered a Cardinal instead of a Hoosier.

“My wife and I have three very active boys: Kayden (4), Douglas (3), and Mason (5 months)

“As someone that benefited immensely from very active members of my community while growing up, I cherish opportunities to impact the lives of others. Each day I get to help families address some of life’s most complex challenges with a vast amount of resources and the simple rule of treating others as you would like to be treated.”
