Luke began his banking career while in college working as a teller and in the loan department for a small bank in East Texas, where he was born and raised. After graduating from the University of Arkansas with a degree in Finance with a focus on Investment Management, he began his career as a personal banker for JPMorgan Chase Bank, helping clients with all manner of accounts, loans, credit products, and investments. In the 10 years he spent working at Chase, he gained two promotions—first to Business Banker, then Branch Manager. Most recently, Luke worked for Morgan Stanley as a Financial Advisor, and is now excited to get back to his true passion of individual relationship management and guiding clients to their personal financial goals at The State Wealth Advisors.
In his free time, Luke enjoys spending time with his wife and 4-year old son. He also enjoys playing on a bowling league, playing pickleball at the Freeland Sportszone, and golfing whenever he can. He is a fan of all things sports, especially the Dallas Cowboys, Razorbacks and the Great Lakes Loons. Luke is well traveled, and enjoys hiking, biking, and camping all over the country.
