Edward Jones: Stephanie Emory

Personalized Financial Strategies

As a financial advisor, a combination of my innate attention to detail, perseverance, and optimism help me serve my clients. I also love listening to people's stories to learn what is most important to them.

Prior to growing my business with Edward Jones, I spent many years honing my skills as an operations manager for several small local businesses. My strengths enable me to see my clients' visions, understand the pieces at play, identify available options, and collaborate on developing a tailored plan to help them reach their financial goals by using an established process. Perhaps most importantly--I help them stay on track over the years.

New clients typically come to me at key times in their lives when they are looking ahead, and wondering how they are going to get "there." I enjoy working with young families, people who hope to retire within the next few years, passionate small business owners, successful individuals who recognize the importance of saving for a rainy day, and also those who are recently divorced or widowed seeking financial clarity.

I am very proud to be a part of Edward Jones, and grateful for the trust that my clients place in me every day.

There is nowhere that I would rather call home than Austin, Texas. My favorite places to connect with the city, and spend time with my wife and son, are our greenbelts and local coffee shops.

Journey Coworking

Home to your best life’s work.

We are for the hustlers that prefer to pause and be present from time to time versus the 24/hour hustle & bustle.

Enter the entrepreneurs, free agents, agencies, and virtual workers, the satellite teams and those of the startup mentality: we are building a new kind of shared workplace – a coworking space to be solo and social; to make, to break bread, and to clear and rest your head. A place to wash away the day and begin the next anew.

Whether you’re dedicated to your desk or working for a company from afar at our custom-built bar, we have just the coworking space for those that desire a better way to work, live, and play- we’ve coined it coexisting.
